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.

Hi! from your brief history it seems to be Adult Acne.
Next Steps
Hormonal evaluation like PCOD and others to be ruled out. please do visit the near by dermatologist for better evaluation. Diet also plays a role in your situation. Avoid excess carbohydrates, sweets, dairy products (milk, cheese, etc ) ,oily foods, non vegetarian foods etc
