You have like a couple of zits on your chin but other than that you're pretty much clear, I think you should just use a mild face wash and just leave it at that, i mean less is more especially for extremely mild acne like yours.

I've never heard of anyone getting acne from vitamins, but I would try laying off the acv for a little while and seeing what happens. Personally, I finally got clear by stopping all topicals except for a mild cleanser (cetaphil) and just taking fish oil and a daily multivitamin.

I'd say keep taking the vitamins and stuff , but for your face only use a mild cleanser and moisturize . Try thinking less about your face it really does help , at least it does for me lol.

my first guess would be that the ACV that you apply to your skin is irritating it.

so you have two options:

a) dilute your water/ACV solution more. (with water)

b) quit using ACV topically.

other than that, your skin looks great!

just another thing to keep in mind:

i notice that your acne is more or less just around your mouth.

do you get excess toothpaste on your mouth when you brush your teeth?

there is something in toothpaste that CAN clog your pores.
