    Hiya,

    I have awful skin at the moment, very spotty!

    I dont usually have any problems, even when on period...

    Hi,

    I usually get the odd spot, but I have some serious lurkers sice I've been pregnant. I've also got loads of spots under the skin on my forehead. Whoever said you bloomed in pregnancy must have been delirious!

    My skin has been terrible and ive never had so many spots im sorry to say i still have them now. Hopefully it will get better for you soon but im still waiting. I dont think the weather helps and having the central heating on really dries it out.

    i got loads to start with but they got better at about 20 - 22 weeks :) i have gone back to a more 'teenage' skin care routine which seems to have helped too (oil free moisturiser, very careful gentle cleansing and some deep cleansing face packs)

    just another one of the many many joys! :moon:

    Me too. It's weird because with my last pregnancy my face cleared up and my skin was perfect, but this time around it's really nasty. I hope it goes away soon.

    Hi there,

    Congratulations on the pregnancy and please try not to bother with the spots as much.

    I had really bad skin in the early stages of my pregnancy, its a way of saying everything is working as normal, take it as a comfort that your pregnancy is continuing, although i know just how hard it is. I used to use johnsons moisturiser

    If i ever got spots it was maybe 3 max a year. I got spots and very blotchy dry skin early on but this seems to have cleared now, im just about to enter tri 2.

    I applied it all the time as it didnt seem to be doing anything, whatever is going on in your body is much much stronger than any cream :) We should thank the bad skin as it is a stark reminder that your baby is having a dance.,
