At this age pimples are very much common. You need to get a consultation for grading of acne. Hair loss could be due to hormonal changes. Wash your face with salicylic acid cleansing gel and then start applying Benzoyl peroxide gel at bedtime. You may also need oral medication if the condition is severe . For Hair growth clear dandruff if any , nourish yourself well and use Minoxidil soln at bedtime.
