I wish I had some helpful advice...
If this makes you feel better I struggled with crap skin since I was a teenager but haven't had a pimple since getting pregnant and having DD. Pregnancy seemed to have cured it.

Spot treatment with benzac water based gel
Right now I'm using witch hazel as a toner then a good moisturiser at night
For me it's hormonal so I've gone back on metformin for my pcos symptoms
My skin goes brilliant in pregnancy after 12 weeks and so far has stayed pretty good at nearly 7 weeks post partum

I didn't see he photo, but I had quite bad acne when I came off the pill. What seemed to work for me ( hard to tell as I got pregnant and while the acne seemed to continue into pregnancy it may have just taken awhile for he hormones to settle?): very gentle cleanser, light therapy to kill bacteria, coconut oil. Coconut oil is non-comedogenic. Make sure your skin has dried completely after washing (if it's red and sore you can use a calming toner) then again ensure skin is dry, but don't wait until it feels "tight" then apply coconut oil. If it's a solid ( usually during winter) just rub it in between clean fingers to soften.
I also was changing my pillow case every couple of days until the "infected" red look went down. And making sure you clean your mobile phone as well. I had worse breakouts on the side I preferred my phone.
Hope this helps!

@babyno1onboard &@BlueLips sadly pregnancy made my acne worse and to add insult to injury I have no baby to show for it.
It took 3 years of IVF to conceive DS so pregnancy is unlikely to be a quick fix.

I used to get bad acne then I switched to body shop and I get the odd pimple here and there but other then that my face has cleared right up. DD started getting bad breakouts once she hit puberty so I took her into the store and they did a patch test on her skin and set her up with the right products for her skin type and her face is now clear as well.
