How do I feel better about my acne?

Since a few years ago, I've had what I thought was horrible acne but now it's gotten even worse and my mom won't let me put on makeup to cover up. I feel horrible and disgusting and just try to hide. What can I do?. I have tried: I guess I've tried just keeping my face clean and it works OK..
