Ive posted before but i use about 1/2 cup sugar and mix in lemon juice until its a thick paste..add 1/2 a teaspoon of olive oil.(make sure its olive not veg oil) i keep it in a little tupperware container in my shower and scrub my whole body with it. Its helped immensely with my hormonal acne lol the sugar scrubs the dead skin away and the lemon refines your pores and tones your skin, and the olive oil keeps your skin soft. You can even substitute with brown sugar for a finer scrub, or lime or fresh squeezed orange juice. Like i said its worked wonders for this pregnancy acne! Give it a try! Its practically free!

same here but its getting better now at 26wks. I wish I would have known about twinsmamarae's scrub weeks ago. This little girl has broke me out bad. My chest and back the worst. Now I'm dealing with the dark spots that's left :/

Yeah i never had but maybe one or two on my chin every once in a while but ive developed it on my chest and back too.. its terrible.most of the time i scrub my shoulders real good but occasionally i have the buff scrub my back for me.. it feels so good. And fyi lemon is a good toner so u can still use this scrub for yourself and it should help the dark spots. But for all of you-- only use this every other day.. you dont wanna scrub off the healthy skin under the dead skin it scrubbed off the last time you used it ya know?
