Acne is caused by hormonal disturbance.Foods do not play much role in causing acne.You can eat eggs if you want to.Just avoid high calorie sweet and bakery products.

Also you can,

1) You can apply topical antibiotic creams like Clindamycin or erythromycin. If acne are severe then she can take oral antibiotics.

2) Apart from oral antibiotics, you need to keep your face clean by washing with a mild soap or acne face wash at least twice a day. You should avoid picking or pressing the acne. You can also use Benzoyl peroxide 5% lotion or gel once at bedtime after consulting her doctor. An amount of lotion the size of a pea should be enough to cover most of the face.

3) You can prevent and treat acne by changing his lifestyle like eating proper diet, getting a good amount of sleep and drinking at least eight glasses of water daily.

4) Other treatment options include retinoids, cortisone injections, chemical peels and laser treatment. Normally a combination of treatments is followed and if nothing proves effective then dermabrasion and laser therapy are useful.
