Pregnancy Acne

  • I dealt with this for a while. What works for me is:
    1. Don't wash your face with soap. Warm water and a gentle massage is good.
    2. Use a dye free perfume free soap for washing like oatmeal or a pure vegetable soap like Kirk's castille soap.
    3. Apply a baking soda paste to the affected area, wash off, then spalsh on vinegar to restore pH neutrality and rinse off.
    4. Dab a little tea tree oil on areas to kill bacteria and promote rapid healing.

  • eh, keep yourself dry and if you didnt have them before you were pregnant they should gradually go away after baby
