In brief: Wait a bit

Most of the skin changes in pregnancy will improve or resolve within about 6 months.
Some (stretch marks, saggy skin) may not go away. All the dark pigment should go away. Your ob/gyn can tell you what won't improve.

In brief: Time

I would allow your hormones to return to baseline.
Nursing may effect the as well.
