What to do about pregnant acne?

My last baby my face cleared up beautifully, but this pregnancy I'm breaking out like crazy. My face, my chest and my back. YUK! Any suggestions on what to do to conquer it?

I'm already using proactive (doesn't seem to be doing anything right now) and I'm changing my towels and sheets often. What can I do? I look like a boy going through puberty.

  • Its been 6 weeks since I have had my girl and I am still broke out. I dont know when or if it will ever go away. Nothing has worked. I just wash my face a couple times a day.

  • Go to your local craft store and pick up some goat milk soap base. Mix as directed,add in 3 drops ea. of tea tree and oil lavender. Wash your face with it every night. Make sure to wash with warm water first and rinse with cold. This opens the pores for cleansing and then closes them.

    For morning I like a nice scrub like this one

  • After my second child, I decided to buy Country Life Omega-Mom Postpartum because I took the pre-partum ones and I not only have noticed a balance in my hormones but a much more clear face than with my first child. I have read that Omega oils do that, they help with hormones and that in turn, helps clear acne.
