Post-pill acne

Hi everyone

In around November 2016, when I was 16, I went on the pill for my acne. It improved a little bit while I was on it, and when my prescription finished I decided to come off it, so 13 months later. I was on a low dosage, and in the month coming off it my skin texture is definitely better. I'm starting to get bigger, more painful pimples (I've had four) and I'm worried this is the infamous post-pill acne blowout beginning. I'm currently taking a Chinese hormone balancer, zinc, evening primrose, vitamin B3, garlic and ingesting turmeric (with my food), and applying jojoba oil to my face to limit oil production. 

Does anyone have any tips from experience as to how they prevented/addressed their post-pill acne?

Thank you!
