  • Clean and clear three step products worked well for me.

  • clearasil is okay if you just use a small amount and cetaphil moisturizer is good too just to keep the clearasil from drying you out too much.. but avoid products with retinol in them

  • this is my 1st pregnancy, so im not sure if i did the right thing or not. but neutragena oil free wash (in the little hand pump) helped me some. i got the acne on my chest and back. not too bad, but it annoyed me and itched. i just used that stuff on a loufa, in the shower.
    getting outh in the sun helped a lot more though.
    just keep it dry and clean!

  • I was the same way with my second. My skin exploded!! It was worse than my teen years. I have really sensitive skin so I used aveeno skin clearing stuff also, merle norman has a spot treatment that worked wonders. I could put it on a zit at night and it would be almost gone in the morning.
