Your acne can still be hormonal and be ongoing. I have the same thing but now as i get older, it's spreading to the sides of my mouth, cheeks , etc. I have not found a solution myself but in terms of supplements, the general consensus is that the go to supps are:
magnesium (for stress/sleep relief)
zinc (rapid healing)
vit D (because most people are deficient anyway)
It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end. Here's to finding my end.
God is good to me..........more than I deserve.
Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

Chin acne could potentially be hormonal. Regardless though, with a good routine you can totally clear your skin up! I had acne on my chin and well, in every other square inch of my face and tried the most amazing online practice by Dr. Neal. Acne bootcamp. My dermatologists told me I needed to either do Accutane or suffer. I chose to suffer not wanting to go on such strong meds.
I stumbled upon his site and Dr. Neal really is an expert in the field. I'd give his products a try. My skin is near flawless now. You get good products and 24/7 access to a doctor either through his online program, phone or email. He'd be able to get you cleared up.

All acne is hormonal.
"Without androgenic action on the pilosebaceous unit, acne does not occur." - Geoffrey Redmond's article in the American Medical Association
Androgens = testosterones = hormones.
Chain goes like this.
Androgenic action -> sebaceous glands -> sebum production -> mixing with dead skin cells -> blockages -> bacteria feeding on blockages -> -> inflammation -> acne.
If you truly had acne without any hormonal component, then it's not acne. It's folliculitis or KP or something that looks like acne but is made through a different process.
