what type of facewash to use?

I am just wondering what kind I should use while being pregnant? I read that you should not use any face wash containing acutane. (I believe thats how you spell it) lol.

  • I thought acutane was in pill form only? that stuff is bad... i believe that's the only thing you have to watch for though.

  • best thing to use is your usual soap and warm water and lotion for moisture. Your skin is changing do to being pregnant and sometimes no mattter what you use you may still get acne from hormones

  • I've been using neutrogena... it's the only thing that keeps me from feeling gross since my skin has been so damn oily. My dr is the one that recommended it.

  • I am pretty sure you can only get acutane in a pill form from a doctor. My brother just got put on that, but he had to sign all kinds of wavers first because of all the possible side effects.
    I use clean and clear..the foam stuff, it doesnt make my skin dry out.
