Break outs

I am 12 weeks pregnant and my skin is a mess. No pregnancy glow here!!! I've been breaking out pretty bad and overall, my complexion is blotchy and rough. My dr. prescribed erygel which I've been using but it's not helping. I know I'm limited as to what kind of products I can use, but there must be some way to improve my skin. Any suggestions?


I am assuming that because you are on a topical antibiotic your main concern is acne. My recommendation is to have a good cleanse monthly by an aesthetician at a skin clinic or in a dermatologist's office. Make sure they are adept at extractions and to make the treatment more effective add a mild microdermabrasion (only if you do not have rosacea). Product wise I am very impressed by the line IS Clinical, specifically the Active , Pro-heal and Super serums. These are non-systemic, may be used during pregnancy and will also combat melasma (hyperpigmentation that can occur during pregnancy).

Remember: Miss Violet says "Do not let those little buggers in utero mess with your skin."
