  • for me, I have sensitive skin, and I tried using a lot of different products but they just didn't help. I started washing my face with a clean rag and just water at least three times a day. That worked for me, I think because your hormones are going crazy because of the pregnancy sometimes the other chemicals in products can be contradicted and not work, so just water a few times a day is what I did.

  • I would be careful when using some acne products and facial cleaners because there is certain ingrediants that can hurt the baby. Here is an article that I found that goes over everything..
