Has anyone found a safe and effective way to treat acne while pregnant? My face is broke out soooo bad and it even goes up into my hair line. It is so embarrasing and obvious that I look different.

Re: Acne!!!

Sorry -- no help here. Just letting you know I'm right there with you. The only hope we have is to wait it out. As the horomones get regulated in our bodies the acne subsides (a few months). I know, it sucks.

Re: Acne!!!

Look up natural ways to treat the skin and use organic products instead of commerically chemically loaded products which will not help. Tea tree oil is great too.

Re: Acne!!!

Hi Amanda

The best thing to treat an acne skin while pregnant is to try and find a product range that uses only natural ingredients and not chemicals and has been classified as a cosmeseutical (which means it has cosmetic but also pharmaceutical properties). I am not sure what skin care range you get in the US, (I use a range called MATIS from Paris) it would be best to ask your beauty therapist. Another tip is do not skip a step in your cleansing routine cleanse, tone and then moisturise and most importantly use an exfoliator (scrub). Make sure you buy a product best suited for your skin type. If you can also try go for a facial every 4-6 weeks so that your skin can be steamed cleaned out properly.

Re: Acne!!!

I had really bad acne while pregnant with my DS. I tried a lot of different things, but nothing worked. This time around, I vowed to get a facial every month. I've been pretty good @ sticking to it. My face looks fine this time around and ironically, I'm having a girl (which they say are the ones that steal your beauty). I also use a cleanser called mint soufflé. It's really good at helping with the redness.

Re: Acne!!!

Thanks for the responses. It seems to be getting a little better, but I guess there isn't gonna be much I can do to combat hormones.
