Greetings. Please note :
Acne is a common problem at your age. excessive consumption  of milk, oily food can worsen acne. Reduce intake of chocolates and other junk food too. Use a topical retinoid cream daily night. You may need a short course of antibiotics. Discuss other suitable forms of treatment with a qualified dermatologist. Hope this helps. Warm regards.
