Yes!! Worse with my last 2 pregnancies.... Burts bees citrus scrub once a day and plenty of face lotion. Watch what you eat (for me it's usually citrus) and drink plenty of water. It worked for me and a friend that had the same problem. Hope it helps:)

You know what fixes bad facial acne?

1/2 cup kosher salt

1/2 cup white sugar

1/3cup coconut oil (if not all of the salt/sugar is coated in oil, add a little more until it's a good consistency for you)


Mix it together and scrub your acne prone spots with it, rinse off, and pat dry. Do not try to rub off the oily feeling on your skin. Coconut oil is so good for your skin (anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and great for moisturizing) and does not clog your pores.

I never had morning sickness, nausea or acne with any of my boys. My SO believes since I wasn't like this with my boys its a girl.

YES.  With all three pregnancies, I had HORRIBLE acne!  It was the worst during my first trimester then slowly got better.

Yes! It has been awful this time. Not only the acne the food aversions and morning sickness. I'm a day short of 14 wks and I still get sick once a day sometimes twice. My first 2 babies were girls so I'm hopeing this one is a boy.
