  • Yes, only when I was pregnant with my daughter! My skin was flawless when I was pregnant with my son! The old wives tale is that girls suck the beauty out of their mommies when they are pregnant!

  • It all depends on the person really =]

    But I had issues with breakouts early on in my pregnancy, just a little bit worse than I did normally before I got pregnant. I know they tell you to not use anything with salycilic acid, but HONESTLY, not enough of the chemical can get into your bloodstream to harm your baby in any way. You can use a mild face wash every day if you want to, that's the way I keep my breakouts under control. The only reason I have good skin right now (I'm 30 weeks) is because I wash my face and moisturize in the shower every day. I'd have horrible acne and crap if I didn't.

  • proactive!!! It is really good!! I know it says to use it in the morning and in the evening but I only used it like once a day or so and if ur pregnant that should be fine. It is cheap on ebay!! The 4oz size is best. It comes with the cleanser, toner and lotion.
