I had it bad in the first trimester as well. It did clear up in the second tri and has been pretty good since. I also had it bad as a teenager. Its because your hormones are so full force right. Ow. Dont worry it should settle out 🙂

Mine mostly cleared up about halfway through the second trimester, although I still have the occasional bad breakout.

I had acne when I was younger, no acne while on the Pill, acne while TTC and I still have at acne at almost 22 weeks preggers.

Quite frankly it sux and I’m not expecting it to get any better!  Unfortunately my acne is of the horrible sore cystic variety but on the upside, any skin that isn’t covered in acne is kinda nice!

I never really had a problem with acne growing up. Ever since the 1st trimester my face, back, and chest have broken out tenfold. I’ve tried a lot of things to help them, but nothing has worked to clear them up (at least not completely). I’m 30 weeks now, and just hoping that it will fade after I have the baby. Definitely one of the most difficult parts of pregnancy for me thus far. Good luck!

It’s all the darn hormones!  My face actually exploded when I got off BC, but pregnancy seems to be clearing it up.  It seems that it does the opposite of what things were like before…

I started using Cerave cleanser and moisturizer and I really like it.

The myth is acne=girl! Apparenty the girl sucks all the beauty out of the pregnant woman. lol.

I had a son, and I have “suffered” from acne since I was about 15. When I got pregnant it cleared up, best skin of my life. Almost makes me want to get pregnant again.

I am 18 weeks and my acne has been terrible since I got pregnant.  I always had difficult skin but I had a great routine and it looked very good the last few years so this is really hard for me.  I have painful cystic acne on my chin, jaw, and back.  It makes me so self conscious and nothing helps.  Even my dermatologist prescribed me Finacea (one of the only prescriptions OK for pregnancy) but told me “I don’t expect this work, its hormonal there is really nothing to do about it.”  UGH.
