In brief: Genetics
Some people have a stronger tendency to acne.
If you feel that diet plays a factor in you avoid si p, e carbs and regular milk. This will take 1-2 months to see an effect. If however this is persistent problem consider Accutane which works well for severe resistant acne in 15-20 weeks. Once clear you can deal with scars later with laser.

In brief: Look Beyond Diet
Lots of things can cause continued acne into adulthood, genetics, hairstyle(bangs, sideburns), stress level, pregnancy, etc.
In terms of diet, make sure your diet is balanced--what you put in is what you get out. If you are truly bothered by your acne, ask your practitioner there are some great acne meds covered by most insurances.
