Try to figure out why you're breaking out. Do your vitamins have iodine in them? If so, that could be the reason for your breakouts. A lot of people are sensitive to iodine and don't realize that they are....and they take it because it's in nearly every multi-vitamin. (cont. below)
A few home remedies that work for me are.....Egg mask: Crack an egg open and separate the yolk from the white. Toss the white and spread the yolk all over your face. Let dry for about 15 minutes then wash with warm water and a cloth. Use daily. BC Powder (crushed non-coated aspirin): Mix 1 packet of BC Powder with a tiny bit of water, to make a smooth paste. Place on trouble areas or the whole face if needed. Let dry, takes about 5 minutes, then wash with warm water and a cloth. Milk: If your skin seems really irritated and red, try soaking a cloth with cold milk and let it sit on your face. The milk will soothe and calm down the redness.

Just wanted to add that over washing your face will cause it to dry out and then produce more oil to try to gain balance back. Once a day with a cleanser is fine, but you can splash with water in the morning if you wanted.
