Spots can be caused by hormonal disturbance, and not always diet.

Do you drink plenty of spring water?

You could also try using organic Aloe Vera juice as a facial toner. Another thing which might help is Myrrh tincture...a few drops in an egg cup full (or less) of water. And use this as a facial toner 3 times a day.
Aloe Vera juice is widely available. Just make sure you get a good pure one. It shouldn't be terribly expensive, and a LOT cheaper in the long run than any cosmetic facial toner.
Rosewater and orange flower water are also very good. I don't know if you can buy these easily any more, but they used to be common, smell beautiful, and very cheap.

If you're still consuming a lot of sugar and caffeine, this can cause flareups as well. I've been reducing my sugar intake and have noticed a marked improvement in my complexion. Try cutting back for a couple days and see if you have a similar response. Also remember to drink plenty of water, to keep your skin hydrated and your blood more capable of carrying white blood cells where they need to go. I know that vegetarians and especially vegans can easily fall into a diet that doesn't have enough nutrients. When I was vegetarian my biggest problem was protein and iron intake, for example. I recommend writing down what you eat for a few days, then reviewing them to see if you're getting high enough amounts of what you need. Here is a link I found that may help you determine the cause and solutions: Veganism and acne

You may also benefit from consuming more immune boosters like ginger and garlic. The way I take ginger is the easiest I know of, and only involves adding half a teaspoon of grated ginger into a mug of hot water once a day. I've found it helps quite a bit.

It also may be your body is still transitioning and getting adjusted to your new diet. There will be many hormonal changes which will cause you to break out.

With that being said, it may just be hormonal acne as well. Up until the age of 25, (even older in some cases) many people still experience hormonal acne.

also take into account these things: have you washed your pillow cases? dead skin cells from your pillow case can cause you to break out.

drinking enough water?
i found on my vegan diet i felt the need to drink MORE water than I used to (don't drown yourself tho)

do you wash your face every morning and night?
some people do not do this and this causes acne.

I think when you switch to a cleaner diet it will start to clean your body out of all the garbage that has built up in it over time. And it can cause detox symptoms in the process, and breaking out can be one of those symptoms. Of course that's just one possible cause.

This girl talks about how she cleared up her skin:
