Pregnancy Acne

I have never suffered from acne, even as a teenager, as soon as I found out I was pregnant I started to notice spots and pimples! I'm now 33 weeks and have had enough of bad skin, I've never had to deal with it before so not sure what is best, does anyone have any tips?

  • tea tree oil is a great, non toxic way to deal w/ pimples. It's your hormones but you don't have to just let them errupt all over unchecked. I would wash my face w/ a gentle soap & then use the tea tree oil as an astringent. As your hormones go back to normal your pimples will decrease.

  • Just hang in there for another few weeks and hopefully it will start to get better!

  • Does it tend to clear up after giving birth? If so, i'll just hang in there!
