I used to get compliments all the time of how smooth my face was but since I've been pregnant I've been breaking out. I started using less makeup and trying to ewak my face before I go to sleep. I think the Vegas weather out here isn't helping me either!

Im at a loss myself... :/
Not that i had clear skin before but now its like im 14 again because of all these hormones. It really kills my self esteem.

I had awful acne before I got pregnant - it had only just started to clear up before I got pregnant :-( After we conceived, I broke worse than ever before. I started using Mary Kay products: face wash, moisturizer, day/night serums, even my makeup remover (I don't wear makeup very often, though). My face has completely cleared up!! I'm 39+2 and have been acne free since my fifth month or so (when I started with their products).

I read that its not recommended to use certain acne products :/ was wondering if someone took a more natural approach i.e. lemon sugar scrub.
Thats great that your face cleared up though!

Honey lemon mask! YouTube it and try it!

I use Bio Oil on my face. They say acne is due to a lack of oil that your skin is producing (oil blockage), so the Bio Oil has been putting the oil back into my face and is also evening out my skin town and giving me more of that "glow." Since I've started using it people at work have noticed.

I clean mine with tooth paste .. Regular tooth paste , not cinnamon or any of that . Mint is fine but do not but it too close to your eyes , then clean with Johnson's baby wash after rinsing the tooth paste . My face is so smooth I've been doing this for years .
