Hi there, sure & congratulations! :) I would recommend first adjusting your diet
(what you put into your body really has a big impact on skin) cut back on caffeine and alcohol (both can dry out skin). replace with green tea, water and plain coconut water daily (you can add a wedge of lime or lemon to water to give it more flavor). eat at least one serving of fresh fruit daily, as well as healthy veggies (kale, broccoli, spinach, carrots, tomatoes, etc) these are all rich in water content and will add natural moisture and radiance to your skin. cut back on sugary and starchy foods or foods with a lot of artificial ingredients. if you have a sweet tooth, you can still indulge occasionally with *pure* organic cacao (the cacao bean itself) without the added sugar or artificial ingredients... check out sunfood.com (they have cacao nibs you can sprinkle on cereal, plain yogurt, etc). fruit is also always a healthier 'sugar' option than any artificial sugars. I don't know how your skin gets along with dairy products (they cause breakouts for me), but you may want to consider cutting back on those as well (dairy products contain hormones which can affect your skin). Choose whole-grains over multi. And try to cut back on sodium and artificial sugars in general. As far as topical skin care goes, I would cleanse no more than twice a day (overwashing can dry out or irritate skin). Use organic, alcohol-free gel cleansers (like Eileen Mai, Boscia or Nourish Organics Moisturizing Organic Face Cleanser). Pai also has a lot of great organic skin care options. My favorite alcohol-free toner is Michael Todd Organics' Cranberry Antioxidant Toner. It makes my sensitive skin feel clean and fresh and smells wonderful too. I would recommend using a small amount of a lightweight (alcohol-free) moisturizer under makeup, and after you've cleansed your face right before bed ( I recommend Earth Science's Almond-Aloe Unscented moisturizer). My skin is sensitive & acne-prone, and I have never ever had any problems with it. I would also take a good look at whatever cosmetics & cosmetic tools you are currently using. Make sure to discard anything old ( see: http://beauty.about.com/od/makeuptr... ). Built-up bacteria on makeup brushes, sponges, etc.can cause breakouts. So make sure to clean brushes & tools regularly, and throw out anything old. Also make sure any powders or foundations you may be using are non-comedogenic. Whenever you cleanse your face, make sure always to be gentle (never rub or pull, esp around delicate eye area). Use lukewarm water, and do a final rinse with cold or cool. Be sure get all your makeup off every night & to wash your pillowcase regularly (otherwise you are pressing your face into bacteria while you sleep). Lastly, if you are open to taking supplements, I recommend taking 2 caps of tumeric daily, as well ginger, cinnamon and astaxathin. (These are all antioxidants that can add natural glow & radiance to your skin from the inside out.) Make sure to drink plenty of water everyday. Hope this helps & congratulations! :)
