  • I have dealt with it. The best thing I found to use was plain soap and water.

  • it is very common in pregnancy and each pregnancy is different, so you can't compare to your previous ones. Just have a good skin care routine, washing morning and night, moisturizing and exfoliating 3x/week.

  • It's just your hormones. It will get better after you give birth. I got acne on my best HORRIBLY when I was pregnant. I'd never had it there before. I still have some scars from popping the pimples. FYI, DON"T do that! lol. Get a good acne cream, and just deal with it. Hormones pretty much suck.

  • I used the microdermabrasion kit from mary kay it helps get the dead skin off and seemed to work well.

  • You're not supposed to use any acne medication while pregnant because it can be absorbed into the skin. Stick to the soap and water. Having a bit of an issue with it now but it come and goes.
