  • I pretty much don't need a pregnancy test...i get gigantic painful ones on my face! lol. The best way I have found to control it this time is clinique's face care line. I use it twice a day. Make sure your skin doesn't get too dry because dry skin will actually break out worse. hope it works for you! Even if it isn't clinique find a good cleanser, toner, moisturizer system and be religous with it. And the days that you can get away with no make up do. Always wash before going to bed :)

  • I can't live with out my clarisonic facial brush. I use it with the Aveda skin care line. The moment I don't use it I break out really bad. I don't use cheap stuff either!

  • I look like a pepperoni pizza and have this whole pregnancy. I always had a pimple or two before being pregnant but its has got much worse being pregnant. I tried face wash for acne and lotion but the only thing that I do now is soap and water because the other stuff made it worse. The only advice I think I can give you is to get a good cover-up.

  • my mom always told me to use tooth paste on pimples that are already there.. works okay for me. I also use face wash, soap and water can clog pores worse.. so wash your face with that first, but use a face wash like neutrigina or something after that.

  • i use wax, its called surgiwax you can buy it at walmart, walgreens, cvs... its the surgiwax for the bikini area and it works fantastic i was my pimples like every week and a day or two they start to go away. This is the type that doesnt need strips you can pull the wax off... then i use a clearasel (spelling?) its blue and purple like half blue half purple and white writing its about $7 and i use that everyday and my pimples are finally starting to go away... good luck and if you try it let me know how it goes,
