Congratulations for your baby! First of all try to eat healthy and introduce some nuts, pistachio, almond,avocado, fish in your diet. And don't forget about hydration...very important. Drink plenty of water. Try to rest at least 7-8 hours per night. And last but not least hydrate your skin with a hydrating cream as natural as you can find or you can try olive oil, coconut oil or shea butter and try to apply it in the morning and before you go to bed. Good luck!

Hey you can try buying some facewash there's a lot of them that help to clean your acne at your local Walgreen's or at jewel osco. I was breaking out & it helped me ..
