When You Were Pregnant, Did You...

Posted by   + Show Post

Hey ladies.  So I'm pregnant with my first (14w2d) and I've been breaking out during my whole pregnancy but the zits were the poppable kind.  Now I have these (five, to be exact) zits that are just like sore bumps on my face - like the zits that aren't ready to pop yet.  The problem?  No facewash, astringent or cream is taking them away and they itch!  No, they're not bug bites lol.  I even used rubbing alcohol on them to try to dry them out and nothing.  Did any of you ladies have these issues during your pregnancy?  What worked for you?  Will acne subside at all?

I had this problem but I didn't do anything about it. It went away on its own. At least until my honey said you have to let me pop them.

Yes ma'am! My face skin with the last 2 was horrible.

I just kept it clean and put a non-greasy cream.

Try somethin' for rosasa (sp)?

GL mama and congrats!!!

 Breakouts very common in pregnancy. Alcohol dries it out, but makes your skin produce even more oil to compensate for the "drying out". Try Neutrogena facial scrubs. or dove white bar of soap.
