    Clinique also has an anti blemish solutions range that is very good. But i'm not sure it's any better at the end of the day than cetaphil products or others you can get from the chemist.
    My skin has changed so much during pregnancy but I have the opposite issue - my skin has gone from oily/combination with blemishes to dry and absolutely zero blemishes.
    But... important to make sure you're using the right products for your skin now, not your skin before pregnancy.
    Together with all the usual tips - try not to touch your face, keep hands and face clean and if you're getting break outs on neck and forehead, consider your shampoo and conditioner and what they might be doing.
    Good luck!

    thanks @kaleissk - I'm currently having fortnightly micros and they aren't really helping hahahaha I just like the pampering bit! Ive not heard of Rationalle so I'll look into them!

    The products I use are all recommended by my dermatologist as I suffered from cystic acne prior to pregnancy. The only thing that cleared it up was the pill

    @firsttimemum34 I think you may be on to something here - instead of my fancy pre-pregnancy stuff, perhaps I need to get on to something more basic and gentle. Something nourishing and moisturizing

    Default Pregnancy acne

    I'm bumping this again lol! Any other recommendations for products welcome!

    I woke up a few days ago (14 weeks pregnant) spottier than a teenager- I've never had acne (I usually have dry skin) and didn't suffer this with my first pregnancy.

    I'm so horrified by how I look right now and all my expensive products I own are not suitable at all- will need to hit the supermarkets stat!

    I binned all of my fancy creams and lotions and started using QV for moisturizer and avoided make up where possible. Used to only wash my face with warm water and kept hands off!! I used witch hazel for a cleanser/toner and regularly changed pillow slips too.

    I'm the same @HeavenBlue - I binned all my fancy stuff and I've been using QV on my face and body. Witch hazel as a toner and if I get a spot, a dab of sudocrem works wonders!

    Is sunscreen still suitable to use for acne?
