Post-birth control acne

 Hi mommies!

I have been off birth control for about 2 months now & I'm getting acne like I'm 16 again!  On my face, chest, shoulders, AND back!  EW!  Has anyone else had this happen?  If so, what have you done to get your flawless skin back - without going back on the pill - or what recommendations/advice do you have?  I'm completely drug free so I'm not open to going on any acne-rememdy pills or anything.  I have a few things I'm trying but I want to hear from you guys!

Thanks!

Kristin

There's not a lot that can help hormonal acne. Your body will adjust within a few months though and you'll be back to normal. :)

 All you can really do is try to clean your skin gently to keep it from getting worse. It'll clear up again once your hormones regulate after having the baby.
