I'm pg with dc2 and my god my skin has been awful since the day I found out I was pg. I've changed the products I use, and for a week it seemed to help, but the last few days my face (mainly my chin and round my mouth) has been inundated with spots it seems that as soon as I get rid of one, another appears I'm using boots tea tree range, but it seems that nothing is helping. is anyone else suffering?
Funnily enough I was just going to comment are you having a boy? I have 2dd and never suffered with spots at all, never even as a teenager. Fell pregnant with this one, a boy and I've terrible spots on my face. They have got better since about 28 weeks (now 32) but nothing worked. Will be interesting to see if it is hormonal depending on the sex x
I have been very spotty as well... I use the Simple Spotless Skin face wash followed by the Simple Rich Moisturiser and it does help. I still have spots, but not as many and not as big (as long as I keep using it). This is my first pregnancy so nothing to compare with, but I have gut feeling it's a boy .
My skin was positively awful up until about 22 weeks! Mainly around my mouth/chin area. I'm having a boy if you were interested. I cut down on how much make up I wore and just made sure I cleansed properly each day. It didn't seem to help much but it's much improved now (28 weeks).
I've totally cut down how much make up I'm applying on my face, I just hate that I can't stop them I wasn't a spotty teenager either. The only time I would get a spot was when my period was due. I just hope it all calms down. I don't fancy 9 months of shit skin.
I used to have good skin and only get maybe one spot a month before my period. Since being pregnant my whole forehead has been covered and they are so sore I wear make up every day but planning to stop wearing it at weekends to let my skin breathe. I treated myself to a load of Liz Earle skin care today so hope it helps
I'm having a boy too I've been using clarins cleanser and toner (green bottle) and I haven't suffered at all with spots. I would highly recommend it! Sometimes debenhams do an offer if you buy them together as a set xx
Same here, although they have calmed down. I wasn't a spotty teen, and I've had more spots this year than in the rest of my life some of them have even turned into permanent marks on my face
I've found that using light, natural products is best. I've got dry skin so I do tend to load my skin up with. Moisturiser, which doesn't help at all. The best product I've found to combat this is a skin tonic from waitrose basic range, as it contains aloe Vera and camomile, so it's not harsh at all and is very calming. I have never used toners before as they wreck my skin.
