Hi, EmilyRachelle! Those three will more than likely decrease your chances of being a VS model simply because in general, while such things can be airbrushed/Photoshopped out, it's much easier for them to use models who they don't have to do extensive retouching on in photos. However, if the freckles and moles are minimal and not completely spread over large areas of your body, you may be okay. I'm sure you know the difference between whether you have "some" vs. "a lot" of freckles and moles. As far as the acne, if your case is only slight to moderate and you don't have a ton of breakouts, discoloration or scars, you could get away with it. However, having a fairly clear complexion naturally is more desirable.
