Pregnancy acne???

Since I got pregnant my facial complexion has broke out worse than ever with acne. I've tried some scrubs, normal soap, and nothing!!! Any suggestions?

  • ugh I hated the acne I had during pregnancy, I never had a problem with it before but i do now and every time i was pregnant. if normal face washes are not helping ask the doctor, but you may just have to ride it out. I know it sucks. I had one pimple that came up in every pregnancy in the lower center of my forehead I swear it was so annoying.

  • Oh wow, I'm SO feeling your pain with this! Mine has done the same thing! I complained enough that my stepmom took pity on me and bought me ProActive! Best stuff ever and not any more expensive than what I was paying for face cleaners anyways! I would try talking to the Dr. He or she might be able to prescribe something to help you out!

  • Here is how my teen handles her acne: wash your face twice a day with a very mild soap (like unscented baby soap) and a soft wash cloth; follow with a light, oil free moisturizer (she uses Lush). Once a day, before you wash your face, put on a honey mask (just honey, a great anti-bacterial). Every three days add a pinch of baking soda to the honey to exfoliate. Check back with me in two weeks and tell me how this worked.
