Any advice on best facial medicine to use for acne??

I managed to survive with no morning sickness but its paid me back with acne. Anyone find certain brands or regimens that helped the most?

  • clenziderm is the only thing that has ever worked for me. i tried everything, OTC treatments, proactive, and treatments from the dermitologist. this is the only one that worked. its not sold at stores, if you want to know how to get it - message me.

  • witch hazel is my new best friend. also, you might want to make sure that your moisturizer and any cleansers are oil free. that makes a huge difference

  • you usually can't get a prescription acne med while pregnant, and don't use anything with retinol in it, it can cause birth defects
