    I would try Lightroom's skin smoothing brush first. Failing that, you might have to buy Portrait Professional.

    I usually use paint over the face in Lightroom and then drop the clarity down to where it looks good. I then add just a bit of sharpening to it so it doesn't look to fake or plastic like. I have also used a method in photoshop using layers and filters that worked pretty well. It was much more involved and time intensive though. The main thing I have found is to add sharpening back to the area to avoid the plastic look. You could also bump the exposure up just a bit and it may help mask the acne a little bit.

    Yeah, if you select the brush tool in LR and change the effect to "Soften Skin" it just gives you a brush with Clarity -100 and Sharpness +25. You can adjust those amounts too.
