    Hi Bluesoda,

    I experienced it b4 but it subsided during 2nd trimester. All pdts used dun seem to work, except for Eucerin Demo Purifyer creme-gel. You can buy from John Little or Robinson's cos I think they are having discount now...

    I started having Acne breakout at week 8, seond trimester it gotten worse..until now at 30 weeks, still having pimples popping like FOC.

    its normal, cos of the surge in hormones..maybe we are the unlucky ones compared to those who really have "glowing" skin.

    there is no cure, except to continue using ur normal skincare products provided it doesn't contain Salicycic acid, AHAs.

    and i also suggest don't try any new products cos pregnant can make ur skin super sensitive, so might develop an allergy.

    and yeah have to moisturise your face daily as well..good luck!

    i went to see GP and the GP prescribed me some acne cream (suitable for pregnancy) to apply. After applying for a week, noticed that my pimples will dry up and peel off.

    Try using tooth paste. Dab a tiny dot on those red monsters and they will look less 'angry' the next day. The toothpaste has some ingredients which will 'dry' up the zits but be warned - it's very drying so just apply on the pimples.

    This is a very safe (for pregnancy) and cheap method. Dont need to worry about the foetus's safety, very effective and any brand of toothpaste will work!

    Eat bird nest will help to clear the complexion too. Concentrated bottled one will do... I have been eating it daily and it does give me clear skin.

    Hello mummies,

    I'm facing the same problem too! I had acne breakout nearing 2nd trimester and the condition is quite bad. This acne problem continued till now even after I gave birth to my baby girl in July last year. My friend had been recommending me to go for facial treatment to help ease my acne breakout. I heard from my friend about the Bella promotion that provide skincare therapy at $28. Heard that their services are good and I'm really tempted by it. Have anyone tried Bella's services before?
