I never had acne prior to my pregnancy except for a few bumps here and there along my forehead. But In the beggining I had it on my face and got pimples on my back. the olay clay mask worked wonders before I got pregnant and even now. I think the product name changed to olay shine control, its like 7 dollars and some change in Wal mart. Its a great product.

I was 18 with some acne when I got pregnant with my first and my skin cleared up. I was 24 with clear skin at the start of this pregnancy and I started breaking out again. My skin just does the opposite of what if had been doing once it realizes I'm pregnant. I have noticed a lot more facial hair this time, too! It's crazy.
