With closed comedones is you have to "unplug" the pores and that you can only do with chemical exfoliants. Closed comedones is the type of acne I used to have, and I don't want to sound very negative but I don't think anything is going to make it clear up completely in a week.

You can definitely get products that will improve it, but they usually takes some time. The only thing that ever worked for me was Retin-A, which is unfortunately not OTC, so you'd need to go to the doctor or the dermatologist and get it prescribed. After that though, it's not expensive if you have insurance, it's like 10-15 bucks.

For some people salicylic acid, or glycolic acid works too but those did nothing for me. They are OTC though, so you could try.
(For me personally, scrubs and BP made it worse and my acne wasn't bad enough where my doc felt like I needed epi or other strong prescription stuff.)
