    Morning!!
    I just wondered if anyone else had been suffering from major outbreaks of acne??
    My back is covered too, its really horrible!
    Iv never had anything like it before!
    I usually get on or two on my face when my period is due but i have new ones appearing everyday, its really getting me down!! :(

    I don't know if thats cos I am using different face stuff or not but I;m happy now!

    My skin is much better - better than it has been before I was pregnant

    I HATE SPOTS :twisted: :x
    OMEGA 3 WORKED WONDERS
    As soon as i started taking these suppliment my skin improved 10 fold
    id also carry on taking multivitamins (pregnancy friendly) serously noticed i looked so much healther
    Have you tried Witch Hazel brand ?i use the cosmetic twist stick covers wonderfully and works on getting rid of the blighters at the same time and dosnt cost the earth Brill :D
    I also use the demetalogic range expensive but by god the best range i have ever used and ive tried everything over the years
    I have rashioned myself to just the mosturiser and clenser.
    Ive suffered from them since a young teenager and have never been to permaently get rid of the b******* Buy mine have got better better then they have ever been for the longest period of time ever.
    Im using Johnsons baby shower moisturiser and body lotion and my skin feels and looks fab give that a go.
    I also use the tinted johnsons moisturiser to give my skin a gentle light tanned glow that does not clog your pores.
    Hpe this helps i can say i am an expert at whats out there to use to help spots im a proffesional. so if you nedd any more advice PM me
    Lol Sarah

    I'm the same I have them on my chin and all over my back and my upper arms :(

    Think I will start taking the pregnancy vitamins again and will def try Omega 3 as is good for baby if nothing else.

    Hope you get them sorted xx

    Witch Hazel is great for helping get rid of them

    I got Clinque anti blemish set for my xmas - face wash, toner and moisturiser and it seems to have helped.

    Its so wonderful i think im going to have to buget for it it can not stand the though of my skin getting worse if i stop using it :cry:

    Early on in pregnancy until about 20 weeks I had bad spots, all over my back and chest too.
    They've since cleared up and my skin is a lot clearer than normal! :dance:

    my skins been awful to :( id never have a spot on my chest or back until i got pregnant and then all of a sudden i was covered in them. It does seem to be clearing up a bit now and i think the spots i get are stress related more then anything else, unfortunatly i currently have dry patches all over my face whic hhave gone red and look like a horrible rash, not sure which is worse
