hey mamas, are any of you suffering from/ did you ever suffer from preggers acne? Just curious what you've been using to prevent or keep symptoms down and if it's gone away yet. If it's gone, how far along (in weeks) you were when it left. Thanks.

First trimester my shoulders and back go CRAZY. It really makes me feel gross and I haven't found anything but time and not scratching that helps :/

My first pregnancy I had acne thru the whole pregnancy. went away after I gave birth. Didnt find anything to help it during either. :(

I wonder if it's related to bearing male children?  It seems like when my friends have bad acne they have boys.   Like the testosterone infuriated your skin?   Thoughts?

Omg! Yes! I have terrible acne. Makes me feel like I am hitting puberty all over. I found that drinking water, tons of it helps quite a bit. As well as my usual face cleanser.

First pregnancy and at first it was on my back and then after the first trimester it's all on my face! Mainly my chin area which I never really got acne there. I'm having a girl and was hoping for that fresh glowy face lol. I've been using proactiv and have used it and it usually does good but I guess pregnancy hormones overcome it unfortunately.

I wash face twice a day with my normal face wash. Also I use a sulfer face mask by acne free. Lush has good face masks too my favorite is magaminty mask that has a cooling mint feeling. For spot treatment I use clinique acne solution soft healing gel it comes in a small bottle but lasts foreverm

Hey what do you guys think abt using tea tree oil twice daily or at all. It's significantly helped but both my go and obgyn aren't too familiar with it to advise me on its safety. Google searches seem to agree with it and some disagree with it. Posts that agree suggest dilution to 5%, which technically does nothing ... I use ear cotton buds to apply at 100% ... Not sure if this is safe...

Did u have any acne before? I had none, and very little during adolescence. But I have a bunch on my back. Sea salt and ocean swimming is best for me. But it depends on your skin type. Good luck.
