My ugly chin - please fix!!

(4 Posts)

I have accepted that at 38 weeks its somewhat understandable that I am a volcano of hormones, however I am getting really p*ssed off with the giant ugly spots, actually not really spots just angry bits which keep appearing on my chin.

Sorry blush

Nothing seems to work, nothing makes them better/go/not appear in the first place.
Apart from 42 tons of concealer, putting a bag over my head or wearing a false beard has anyone got any ideas? hmm

Many thanks....

Sorry to hear about your chin woes!
You may have tried these already but just in case... tea tree dabbed on may help. There are also brands on the market which are geared towards reducing the redness of spots (or nearly spots) - you might have to Google it as can't remember off the top of my head and the laptop is slow. Also, weird as it may sound, don't skip on the moisturiser as that will make the skin produce more oil and / or get more sore and blemished.
Lastly, and sorry if this is teaching to suck eggs etc, drink LOTS of water (realise you may be doing this anyway) and try and flush things out and away from the inside. Lots of water is one of the best, and cheapest, spot zappers there is! (Although not allowed to say that too much due to advertisting - am journo in RL)

Good luck with the skin and good luck with the baby!

Quinoderm Cream is a godsend. I had the same problem and it cleared up my spots in 3 days!
