Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. It can be due to adult acne which occur due to hormonal imbalance at this age. Just keep you face clean by washing with a mild soap atleast twice a day. Pat it dry and do not rub it. Avoid picking or pressing the acne. Specific treatment consists of Benzoul peroxide gel and topical antibiotics like Clindamycin.
Other treatment options include topical retinoids, hormonal therapy, dermabrasion , phototherapy and laser resurfacing. Normally a combination of treatments is followed and if nothing proves effective then dermabrasion and laser therapy are useful.
