In brief: Acne
Don't wash your face with body soap.
Also don't use alcohol or comedogenic products on your face. Try to find an acne wash system like neutrogena, pangea organics or something with benzoyl peroxide. Following low sodium diet might help too, since acne-causing bacteria like salt. You can try to prevent spreading bacteria onto your face by not touching your face, washing your phone, etc.

Acne treatment for teens are mostly antibiotic cream like Cleocin (clindamycin phosphate) t lotion, perzagel 5 or 10 percent, erythrocin cream. Oral antibiotics are added when there are inflammatory comedones such as doxycyclines or tetracyclines.
