acne and periods

I'm a teenager and normally don't have acne until the week before and during my period. It doesnt get to bad but sometimes it's very annoying and painful. is there anything I can do before I get my period/during it to help the acne due to my period?

Acne has many causes, and one of them is hormones.  I'd venture a guess and say your acne could very well be triggered by your hormone levels during your period.  I would recommend talking to your doctor and seeing if they have any advice for treatment/prevention.
