Skin of a Teenager

My skin is breaking out terribly! I normally have oily skin but never really had a problem with acne. My normal skin routine is not preventing the breakouts. Any suggestions??

I have had the same problem. Since i was about 5 weeks pregnant my forehead has broken out and looks terrible. I never had bad skin as a teenager and am yet to find anything that helps it. If you find something that works, let me know!!! Kind of restricted as my skincare specialist has said no vitamin A,  E, any acids (gycolic, citric, saylicilic) basically anything active in most acne products due to risk.

Give your face a good long steam to completely open out your pores and then get a good quality mud mask to draw out the impurities.. Rinse off and then use a tea tree cleaner and toner and then allow it to dry before following up with a light water based face cream... Do this morning and night and you should see it clear up... But if ur husband works nights you can replace the face cream with sudocreme

I had really bad breakouts the first few weeks and used a drop of tea tree oil in my cleanser and moisturizer morning and night till it cleared.

I switched to Origans a Perfect World soap, and coupled it with Doterra's pore reducing toner. For me it worked great.

I tried a mix of all natural oils with antioxidants, that has worked best for me. I read that during pregnancy bacteria get trapped in your pores causing pimples and many of these oils prevent bacteria from growing. Oils like coconut and jojoba are natural antibacterial antiviral and antifungal. As long as you don't lather it on, it actually does not clog your pores. A lot of these oils also help heal your skin naturally.
