  • You're so limited when you're pregnant since so much isn't safe to use. I had my midwife get me a prescription for Clindmycin gel and that really helped.

  • ive always had some acne too.. i tried all different products and none worked until i found one called obagi clenziderm. it works great! when i got pregnant, i read the bottle and it said to ask a doctor if your pregnant or breastfeeding. the main ingrediant was sylacalic acid. i read a bunch of articles that said you cant use a product s. acid while pregnant but i asked my doctor and she said that i can use it ,just not to use a mask with it, but i can use a wash or topical treatment. she said she did while she was pregnant and had no problems, so i did and my son is perfectly healthy and i kept my acne under control while preggo.

  • I switched to a soap called Purpose, it's amazing, a little pricier but worked for me. =)
