Damn annoying!!

Is anyone else getting acne while pregnant? Maybe it was an old wives tale, but I was kinda hoping for glowing skin :(

  • You'll get it in the early stages of pregnancy, then it will go away.. Then I'm starting to get it again and I'm 34 weeks.. Its just your body adjusting to your pregnancy hormones.. Just make sure to wash your face or where ever you are getting the acne.

  • GLOWING SKIN HAPPENS LATER ON USUALLY.
    I STARTED GLOWING AROUND 7 MO.
    YORU ACNE CAN WORSEN BECAUSE YOU CAN GET MORE OILY.

  • My skin wasn'y glowing but for me I cleared up. Even after the baby my skin was clearer than before. But 5 kids later I am getting more acne than 7 yrs ago.

  • The "glowing skin" is actually caused by increased oil production. Acne comes from this, too, so it's kind of a catch-22. I was one of the lucky ones, my normally terrible skin was pretty nice while I was pregnant!
