SKIN!!!!AAAHHHHH

My face is horrible ladies.
I have NEVER in my life had acne or any skin issues. Living in Colorado I usually have to hidrate because my face would sometimes get dry.
Sence I've been preggo, my face has become compleatly OILY! my face is COVERED in really oily zits. (Gross I Know) I feel disgusting.
any other mommy's dealing with this eradic skin change? Maybe some DIY secrets to help level out my skin? Much appreciated ladies

I've never had acne but since I've been pregnant my face has been breaking out left & right. I wash my face every morning & every night as well with a face scrub from clinic & nothing is working. You're not alone

I have a similar problem. I was told mine arent zits though they look like zits but are tiny pin head things. For me she told me to take clariten or benidryl. Idk if that would help you at all but thats what my doc told me. Mine are all over my face and shoulders chest and back. Its nuts. I have never experienced anything like this before. Good luck with your issue

I have the same thing happening, but my acne is all over my shoulders and back! It's terrible! I dont even like to wear tanks now in the summer because my shoulders are so gross! I didn't even realize this was a pregnancy symptom until I got this app lol. Glad I'm not alone and hoping this goes away once baby is here! :)

My dermatologist recommended 2 face washes by Peter Thomas Roth one is the anti aging cleanser and the other is the glycolic cleanser. He told me that it is safe for pregnancy and I confirmed that with my gyno. My 1st born was a boy and I had horrible acne and now this time around my skin is much better since using these. The bottles last forever too.
