Congested skin, milia, whitehead, rosacea?? (Photos)


I am 23 yo woman struggling with this kind of acne for about 3 years. I never had significant problems with acne during my teen years and I do not have an oily skin. It can get moderately oily on my T zone, but nothing crazy. I tend to have dry patches along my jawline. 

It looks like my skin always has tiny little bumps all over my cheeks... (not so much on my forehead). Some are inflammed and some are not. Sometimes it can develop to a small pimple with a whitehead, but the bumps stay there for a long time. When my skin gets better and less inflammed, I still have  hyperpigmentation). I do get pimples on my chin, jawline and neck and I believe it is hormonal. But I wonder if those small bumps are related to hormones. 

So I am wondering: are they blackheads/whiteheads, milia, rosacea???
