I know this probably seems a bit of a vain post but i seem to have developed horrendous acne on my around my chin and some on my forehead! I usually use a strong acne cream to get rid (have suffered before with hormone related acne) but I have been informed it's not best to use this when pregnant! So if any of you have had the same problem what have you used instead to ease the spottiness? On top of my super bad bloating and morning sickness / all day nausea I really am not feeling great lol!
I have the same problem lol and its horrid I look like I've had chicken pox ffs. And I feel so unattractive lol haven't found a rememdie tho so if you hear anything let me know as I'm desperate as well its all over my back and neck and chin fs x
Same. I've also got a spotty décolletage, face is definitely worse just so attractive its just so itchy. Im forced to not wear any makeup at work (well all day really) as it just makes it all worse. ( i work in a theatre) and a change in my diet I've mainly been eating crap hasn't helped anything! Grrr cant wait for my hormones to go back to normal x
I know! I've been eating crap food too, mostly because it's all that seems to ease my sickness! So I think that it definitely has not helped my skin situation! I also feel bad about eating rubbish food, as I know really you should try to be as healthy as possible! Eeek!
My spots were the reason I thought I was pregnant. I was getting so many and really sore ones. I Google this and it came up saying I had a hormone imbalance. Teamed up with the sore boobs and my upset stomach I knew I was pregnant. 7 weeks in and I'm still spotty. Currently have sudacrem all round my mouth and chin lol
I've had awful acne! Mostly on my back but some really big painful ones on my face. Clinique blemish control foundation really helped with coverage and took some of the angryness out of them. It's a bit on the pricey side but I think it helped. Nothing has worked on my back though!!
Mine looks awful too! I look like a teenager (doesn't help that i probably would without the spots too!) I have been quite sick so ate junk food. But I'm now consciously upping my fruit and veg (because I wasn't reaching 5 a day!). I've tried to not use make up too often, I take it off before I sleep (normally terrible at this!), use an exfoliating cream in the shower, and cleanser and toner a few times a week.
My skin is terrible. Spots all over my face, neck, chest and back! I've found 1 part Epsom salts to 2 parts water, then dabbed onto the spots really helps dry them out and clears the infection. Epsom salts are safe to use. It has caused eczema around my mouth but I have really sensitive skin. It does also leave a white powder residue on your skin so best to use at night.
