Post Pregnancy Acne

Recommended Posts

I had my daughter five months ago now I am getting these deep bumps in my face. My skin can not tolerate any pro active products and my dove soap only helps clean my face. I use cetaphil at night to remove my bb cream. Nothing is clearing up my acne though. The bumps actually hurt now what can I use to clear this up?

Hello! Congratulations on your baby! Sorry you're dealing with acne. How was your skin during pregnancy and before pregnancy? Our hormones get very out of whack after delivery. Even a few months afterwards. Are you breastfeeding? If not, are you using any medications? I also had a baby 8 months ago. I use the regimen and used it while pregnant. I think it's one thing that helps keep my acne away. I'm also breastfeeding. I still breakout quite a bit only when my period comes. I have the painful red, medium in size papules. This last cycle I don't know if it was the new makeup I tried (face broke out the day after I began using it) but I ended up with 6 effin zits. I know I'm getting one when I get an itchy sensation in the area. Anyway, I'm an esthetician and am very in to skin care, especially hormonal and pregnant women. I know the feeling. I've been through it all. Hope to chat with you. Keep your head up Hun.
