pregnancy acne

Is or did your face break out due to hormones during pregnancy?  Did you do anything different to combat it?

This is one issue I never had during pregnancy, well- I should say that I didn't have already, lol!  I always have had little break outs, but pregnancy didn't make them better or worse.

When I was pregnant with my son, my skin broke out amongst my chest and face, which was unusual since my skin due to genes is pretty good. I used Witch Hazel and then a serum created by BareMinerals called "Skinlongevity". That serum is truly what saved me because it healed any open wounds or scrapes really quickly—like nearly overnight quickly. I also tried to remember to not touch my face as much or rest my head in my hands while in a meeting since the oils on my hands could have been a big culprit too.
