Skin care?

I need help!  My skin, which wasn't great pre-pregnancy, has become a nightmare.  I am getting cysts like crazy and they are huge and they hurt.  I am using Cetaphil face wash but is there anything else that is safe to use?  I was using stuff with salicylic acid pre-pregnancy but obviously cut that out.  Any suggestions?

Re: Skin care?

  • There are a lot of facial products that are safe for pregnancy. I have super dry skin so I only know about those ones but if you do your research there are lots of options. I started my research with a splurge on a facial :P

  • @Littlelady - I've been doing the research, but most things I have been coming up with either aren't doing anything for me, or have salicylic acid or benzoic peroxide and aren't safe for pregnancy.  I asked a friend who is a midwife and she had no suggestions.  I was just wondering what people have found that are effective for them.  My face looks worse than it did when I was 13, and it's physically painful.  I can't put any pressure on the right side of my face because the cysts just hurt that much.

  • Ugh! I'm sorry. I'm super dry so I use coconut oil mixed in my all natural creams. I wish I had an answer for you.

  • I appreciate you answering back!  The cyst on my right cheek is just below my eye and SO painful, I can't even lean my head on DH when we hug!

  • The only thing I can think of to help with the cysts is maybe a warm compress and neosporin?

    I sell a brand of skincare as a side business and I looked through my information and couldn't find any information.

  • I'll try anything at this point! I know the warm compress should open up the pores, but what would the neosporin do?

  • Neosporin may take some of the pain away, but you have to have the kind that has a pain reliever in it

  • I like the Clarisonic Mia.

  • There just aren't many options. :(  I sometimes use a dab of an Rx product I have but that's it. My OB told me there wasn't anything else she would recommend.

    I feel your pain, literally. I have it all over but the skin on my back hurts.

  • Butting in from GP...

    I've had luck applying toothpaste to big pimples and leaving it on overnight. It works even better than tea tree oil most times.
