I wear makeup evry day because I have acne, not terrible acne but pretty noticeable. I feel very insecure when I don't wear makeup. My boyfriend says that wearing makeup evry day is going to make my skin worse. When I don't wear makeup he says I am still beautiful but I feel vulnerable around him when I don't wear it and I try not to look straight at him when I'm not wearing it. He is so amazing and so accepting of me, so how can I get over this awful insecurity?

You should force yourself then. In time, you will get more comfortable and gain more confidence, at least around your boyfriend. We all have insecurities and it takes a long time to get rid of them. Be patient and for the time being stop wearing makeup around your boyfriend and make a conscious effort to look him straight in the eyes.
Also, you should apply ice cubes twice a day all over your face. Don't apply the ice directly; wrap one cube up in a piece of cloth or tissues. Apply gently over the infected areas for like 3-5 minutes and when the cube is nearly done, slowly slide it across your entire face. I used to struggle with acne (especially blind pimples >.<) and I don't recommend any products whatsoever. I haven't tried them all, but I am generally against them. Ice and honey seem to work just fine. In the end, all we really need is patience, confidence, and self-acceptance.
I hope this helps. : )1

Look at yourself in the mirror and say u are beautiful until it is engrained in your mind. I was like u feeling insecure cuz I believed what people said when they called me ugly but I told myself that I was more that and was pretty until I believed it. Your boyfriend loves u for u and that is all that matters, he does not love just your face but all of you, your body, your heart and mind. Do not be insecure. I do not wear makeup and I am pretty not cuz of my looks but my insides are just a beautiful. It is what is inside that matters, not the outside.2
