I really think the type of make up you wear matters. Try to buy the kind that helps your skin.My mom always made me rub lemons on my face which should dry out any acne but make sure you mosturize when your done to prevent dry skin

I never had acne until this pregnancy - my 3rd! Nothing helped me, but it did go away FINALLY around 20 weeks.

Is proactive pregnancy safe? I have tried 3 different soaps and no results. I even stopped wearing make up... A painful decision! Hopefully it will clear up as the weeks progress. This acne+my homomes\ body image= disaster!!! I'm being dramatic... But you get it :)

I am sure it is! The farther along I got in both pregnancies the more and more it cleared up... If it doesn't it will once baby is born, its pretty common during pregnancy with all the hormones.

Buy a face wash that exfoliates and try something over night like a overnight cream & if its really big pimple & it's bothering u put hot water on a wash cloth hold it down on problem for 3 mins I guarantee u it will go down ! If u still need it to go down more do it more times .
