For women with hormonal acne (e.g. lower face/jawline, irregular periods, or acne flares with periods), spironolactone can be very effective and safe. For women of child-bearing age, it would typically be combined with some sort of contraception as we wouldn't want you becoming pregnant while taking this medicine.
