32 with breakouts

Please please help me

I am 32 and am getting breakouts on my cheeks and / or chin
everybody I have seen has said its hormonal

I am on Yasmin contraceptive pill
I am taking zinc, as well as omega 3 &  6
I seen an improvement - but my skin has not clearer entirely - just when it is clear I get a huge cyst pimple which then needs to clear.

I am still waiting for for the marks from previous breakouts to fade.

I use dermalogica face products and wear Clinique even better foundation
I follow a healthy diet - limit sugar and wheat, gluten etc.
I take a probiotic daily
I dont know what to do anymore - I dont want anybody to see me without make up

Do I go to a dermatologist? is there anything they can give me for the breakouts / marks

You will have to consult a dermatologist. Treatment can range from IPL (Intense Pulse Light) therapy to an extended course of oral antibiotics. Consult a dermatologist as soon as possible to prevent further scarring.
