Hello Ramya ,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic forum.
It is very common to get pimples (acne)at this age due to the hormonal changes taking place in your body with puberty.They do subside as age advances.
However it is advisable to get it treated if you are getting pustules or nodular acne which leave behind hyperpigmented scars on the face causing the face to appear dark.
So a consultation with a dermatologist would be beneficial if you really suffer from bad acne scars.
Meanwhile Here are some tips to help prevent breakouts and clear them up as fast as possible:

1.Wash your face twice a day with warm water and a mild soap . Gently massage your face . Don't scrub. Overwashing
and scrubbing can cause skin to become irritated .
2.Don't pop pimples. It's tempting, but you shouldn't: Popping pimples can push infected material further into the skin,
leading to more swelling and redness, and even scarring.
3.Avoid touching your face with your fingers or leaning your face on objects that collect sebum and skin residue like
your phone. Touching your face can spread the bacteria that cause pores to become inflamed and irritated. To keep
bacteria at bay, wash your hands before applying anything to your face, such as treatment creams or makeup.
4.Keep hair clean and out of your face to prevent additional dirt and oil from clogging your pores.
5.Protect your skin from the sun. It may seem like a tan masks acne, but it's only temporary. A tan may worsen your acne, not improve it. Tanning also causes damage to skin .
6.Avoid over the counter acne creams as each skin type is different and creams prescribed by doctor after examining your skin are preferable.
You may apply natural aloe vera gel for better results.
