If it's hormones then I'm screwed! I want to do bodybuilding, and to get your body to look like that hormones have to be maximized and cortisol hormone minimized.
I don't think it's sleep bc whenever I go to sleep I try to get the very most out of that sleeping session. I have mild acne. Most of the doctors in my area are complete shit!
Unfortunately I know very little about what to recommend to people with acne and who are trying to body build.
Here is an article by Acne Einstein on the subject:
Here is a link to videos on youtube when you type in "Body building and Acne". Maybe these men can help you:

Here are forums on this website with similar questions and problems from others:
Sorry to hear of your doctors, I understand the feeling... I just don't want others to believe that all doctors are shit when there are still good people out there. Please don't give up your search, and if you can talk to people who are bodybuilding and also have (or had) acne. Working together with others may be faster and easier for you. And I am sure you sleep well, but muscle grows when you rest and sleep, not when you weight lift, so snooze an extra hour if you feel you need it.

You do NOT need milk to body build:
Click on my success story bellow and read the other milk links if you can. Sorry I don't have more supported links for body builders avoiding milk and protein drinks and what not, but if you have acne you may have no choice but to ditch these food products for a few months and see if it helps.
Hormones are also in meat, which can either be ideal for you as a body builder, or terrible for you if you are prone to acne. If you must eat meat, get the good quality stuff, but it's far more expensive and impractical on a high school budget. The protein might help you gain muscle, but the hormones they pump into the cows and other animals also find their way through your system and can cause acne.
