Hi and thanks for the query,

Acne around this age as yours is most of the times because of hormonal reasons also called peripubertal acne and usually settles down after some years. It should not be aggresively treated if mild. You can use over the counter benzoyl peroxide preparations for treatment and take good care of your skin and use cleanser to avoid super added infections and take lots of fluids. If acne is severe get it examined by a dermatologist for further treatment.
