Acne!

Is it normal to have breakouts every day? I'm 31 weeks today and I have had acne all over my chest, shoulders arms and lower jaw. Also is there a safe way to treat while pregnant? I'm so aggravated with the itchy skin and scarring left from the old bumps. It's not cute at all.

It is normal...hormones are the devil. Lol. With my daughter I broke out like a teenage boy...This time I may get one or two every now and then. I treated with pre go safe stuff with my daughter but nothing worked. Ur skin should return to normal once ur little one gets here.

Try using the Neutrogena body clear body wash. I had the best skin ever with my son, but i'm broken out all over with this little girl.

It's the hormones going crazy! I had horrible ance all over in the beginning and now I'm 30 weeks and it's coming back! Be careful when using products and check with your doc on what's safe. I found out a yr ago that I'm allergic to benzoyl peroxide. Good thing I wasn't pregnant at the time.
