  • Well..with me before i got pregnant i had clear and great skin. Now i get a few bumps here and there and then after pregnancy they go away. My friend her face got WAY WORSE and then stayed worse after. I think it all depends on your body. Everyone is diffrent though. Just keep your face clean. I use apircot scrub and it makes my face glow. Gl hun

  • It depends on the person I broke out really bad, but I know people who had the clearest skin ever too. ( It is all about the hormones).

  • most women break out because your body makes a ton more hormones than normal, i broke out sooo bad the first month and now it's all over my back and chest. yuck!

  • I broke out really bad when I was pregnant. I didn't have the best skin before I got pregnant but it got soo bad when I was pregnant. Now that I had my baby, my skin is better than before I got pregnant.

  • I broke up so much during my pregnancy and not just on my face but my chest and upper back. Once I delivered I pretty much went back to normal
