My face isn't glowing, its my.........

BACK! I've always heard that you get an oily face during pregnancy (the pregnancy glow) that usually causes outbreaks on the face as if you're going to start puberty or whatever....but thats not happening with me, my face is more dry than it has been in years...however, my BACK is breaking out more than EVER! Even worse than my husbands!! & that's really saying this normal?? I am 8weeks 3days if that makes a difference...

  • Totally!!! My face is so clear! I love it! But mine isn't my back, its my chest. I hate it! But I would rather it be where I can cover it than on my face! LOL! :)

  • i am 36 weeks and i had the oily skin issue since i was about 12 weeks, my nose is so shiny, i try to put baby powder on it very lightly to try to make it look not so oily but nothing works, i'd rather have the way to cover it up then expose it
