Thumbs down Bad Acne

Help! Ive gotten the occasional pimples, especially around AF, but it seems like Im breaking out alot more now that Im prego...and I thought that your face cleared up once you were pregnant!
Anyway, anyone else have this problem. And are you aloud to you anything good like Proactiv or something? I do use a face wash everyday but I guess its not cutting it.

Re: Bad Acne

Sorry to hear you're suffering! My skin was also terrible when I was first pregnant - much worse than when I was a teenager!! It did get better eventually, if I remember rightly around 16 weeks or so.

I don't know what you can or can't use, but there are definately things you want to avoid so ask your pharmacist or doctor.

You're definately not alone on this one. Loads of women on this board have commented on how bad their skin was when first pregnant.

Re: Bad Acne

Just curious...

Is this something you noticed BEFORE you got pregnant or something you noticed once you found out you were pregnant. In other words, was this a pregnancy symptom for you? Thanks.
