@bythewell - I have a hormonal disorder that messes with my skin as well. I find that once I get the hormones in check, however, the holocrine glands calm down and so does my skin.
Of course, what works for me, might not work for you.
But, you might try exercise. I find that not only does it keep my weight in check (which helps with the hormones) it also makes my skin healthier in general. If I manage to go for a quick run every day or so, I break out much less.
I'm not sure if that's because the blood rushes to my face and somehow helps keep the bacteria away or what, but it works like a charm.
A good, mild cleanser also works really well, if you can find one that isn't going to upset your skin further. I use one with beeswax as a base and that seems to help a lot.
