Safe acne solution while bfing

I feel like I'm a teen again!! I know I have hereditary acne and I can never get it to totally go away, but usually I can keep it under control. I'd like something natural, I've been avoiding over the counter stuff (with benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid) even though the pharmacist said it was ok. It just seems so harsh for the lo, and usually doesnt work that great for me either. Any suggestions? What has worked for other mamas who have this problem? Thanks!!

I have been using the over-the-counter stuff. Actually the new Pink Grapefruit from Neutrogena seems to work well on my skin. I only use the benzyl peroxide if my skin is getting bad, but sometimes I don't feel it working anyways.

Sorry, I feel for you. The best thing I can use is birth control and I am not going back on that until I am done breastfeeding.
