Hiya MrsM, I'm afraid I can't provide any answers but can share how you feel - I'm exactly the same!

My hair is greasy & dandruffy (really not good with black hairhmm) my skin is spotty, washed out & grey looking and I am FED UP.

Hoping someone will have some magic answers to make me look like me again....wink

I was exactly the same, now 12+3 and pleased to say my skin is starting to look much better. Haven't used anything in particular other than put some bio oil on cotton wool and wiped over dry areas and spot scars one night (not on fresh ones though) and that seemed to help a bit. Tbh I think it's just down to hormone changes, hopefully yours will ease up too in a few weeks :-)

thanks guys, read a few threads and it seems a lot of us are suffering with this too. if i find any good remedies ill post it. i did read someone said that oilatum worked for them, its pricy but worth a try and like u say excited85, it might clear up after the 12 wk period, im 11+1 so not long to go x
