I never had acne much before I was pregnant, but all of a sudden it's been awful. I've been washing with Clearasil, but it doesn't seem to help much. Does anybody have any suggestions for things that worked for them?

Me too! I'm sorry but I haven't found anything that really works. I think we just have to live with it for a few months. Stress makes it worse, so try to take care of yourself. If I do find anything I will be sure to post it.

Mine seemed to flair up in my first trimester. My chin was a battlefield! Now that I am at 18 weeks it seems to be better. Not 100% but better. Nothing seems to help though.

Mine was worst in the the 1st trimester, but better now...not completely though. Wash your face at least 3 times a day with a good face wash; if you wear make up wash it off as soon as you get home. Use your toner before you go to bed. I use the Evian face wash and the Evian facial scrub and find it works well for me. If you have acne on your back; or any body parts Tea Tree body wash is great for acne skin. I havn't used it because I don't like the smell, my sister loves it though! You can get it from Lush and I think Body Shop might carry it.

Do Not use a foaming cleanser.. I repeat ..Do Not use a foaming cleanser use a creme cleanser then an alcohol free toner and then moisturizer.. im really acne prone unless i use the Marcelle cream cleanser and oil free toner.. in the blue squeeze tube and the blue bottle. then follow with Christian Dior "Capture" moisturizer.
