Pregnancy Acne...

Postby babydreamz » Tue Jun 07, 2011 2:21 pm

I look like a alien!! My skin has erupted so bad. Everyday, there is a new pimple on my face :oops:

All I have been doing is washing my face, twice a day with Avalon face wash, applying toner and applying tooth paste(weird?!) at night ( it has a cooling effect, but not really helping the acne)

My hormones are going berserk...any suggestions? Should I just wait it out, and maybe it will subside by 12 weeks? consult a dermatologist? any home remedies (my preference)?

I want pregnancy glow that I have heard so much about....!!!!!!!

Any suggestions/advice from mommies to be...

Thanks and happy and uneventful pregnancy to all!!

Pregnancy acne is normal. I get it too. However, over-treating it can actually irritate skin and make it worse. I think I'd talk to my OB if it is completely out of control. I know there are certain things you cannot use while pregnant, maybe your OB has some suggestions of other things that may help. For me, washing once a day and exfoliating every few days seems to help.

Thank you, Mama!
you are right, I think I will stick to just washing twice a day. Maybe consult dermatologist if acne persist after 12 weeks.

I had the opposite problem. Bad skin before pregnancy, went on Accutane, got pg 1 1/2 months later, had GORGEOUS skin (which was expected), then started to break out again when the twins were about 6 weeks old. Now my face is back to the way it was pre-pregnancy. The hormones completely undid what the Accutane was supposed to achieve. Totally sucks. I have a derm appt tomorrow to see what I need to do. Blah.

But the babies are worth it!

I also had issues with acne when I was pregnant. The best way to get rid of acne during pregnancy is to go the natural way. I don't believe in prescriptions for Acne - not during pregnancy.

I've read that the only way to effectively treat hormonal acne such as this is with antibiotics. I had it during the end of my pregnancy and the whole time I breastfed DD, and it's starting to come back now. I tried everything topical I could think of before but nothing worked. It went away about a week after I stopped nursing DD. It sucks, but it will go away.

babyluv3 - be careful with Accutane, especially if you are thinking of having any more kids! It causes serious birth defects. I'm actually thinking you were very lucky getting pregnant so soon after getting off of it and not having issues with your babies.

Instead of doling all this chemical stuff on your face try to take more vitamins and blood purification process with some antibiotics will help u a lot to reduce your acne.

Well, some women get it worse than others but I would also think maybe your diet could use a boost. Are you eating plenty of protein? And plenty of water? You need 100 grams of protein a day and 8-10 glasses of water. Just a suggestion. You may be eating fine. Those darn hormones can make you break out anyway.

In pregnancy I think this home remedies can be helpful to get ride of acne : 2 tablespoons of honey + 1 teaspoon of cinnamon mix together until they are thoroughly blended and have formed a sort of paste. Apply the mask to your face (or spot treat) and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse off completely, and pat your face dry. This is a sticky mixture, so make sure you have some paper towels at on hand. Hope this will help you to get rid of acne.

I also had acne before I got pregnant, and after the pregnancy my skin became normal.
