M.T. asks from Westerville, OH on June 19, 2008
I am expecting our second child any day now. With all of my hormones during this pregnancy, my acne is horrible. It is starting to finally clear up but my scars are HORRIBLE! I am one who used to be ok going out of the house with minimal to no makeup on. Does anyone have any suggestions??

I broke out with horrible acne when I went off the pill to get pregnant with my son, proactive, It works for me, I'd be a pizza face without it! To order it, call 1-800-950-4695, or 1-800-235-6050, good luck!

I have only minimal personal experience with this, but you might ask your dermatologist about Mederma. I used it after I had a very large-circumference mole removed from my back, and it worked decently well. I was not as faithful to use the product as instructed, so I imagine if you were diligent, you might have better results.
I wish you luck. I hate to feel that I *have* to wear makeup. I've been using L'Oreal's mineral makeup and it seems to give good, light-weight coverage, especially for "rosy" spots.

do not put witch hazel on your face it makes it worse. What happens when you do that is you damage the oil glands by drying them out, then they re-act by overproducing oil, so you end up in worse condition! (I know this from personnal use and $$$$ spent at many dermatologit apointments!) The best advice I can give is use a simple face wash like nutrogena clean and clear, follow up with a gentle toner (not astringent) such as oil of olay toner, and make sure you exfoliate (oil and dead skin is what produces pimples)~ it will pass, the scars you will have to go to a dermatoligist for~ or try something with vitamin C in it~ make sure to not over use different products, it aggrivates your skin and will make the acne more noticable! good luck,

I highly recommend Microderm Abrasion. There are several at home options available because having it done at a spa will cost anywhere from $75-150 a session and they usually recommend about 6 session. I personally really like BeautiControl's Microderm system because it comes with a brush. If you use a cream with your hands it is going to hurt (the creams usually have sharper crystals or sand in them). Here is the website where you can check it out or if you have any other questions about it email me. I have a bit of an obsession with skincare since I too used to suffer from horrible acne, slight scarring, and I'm fairskinned and freckled.

My daughter's dermatologist has mentioned getting a series of chemical peels. We haven't try it yet, but we most likely will. Just trying to stop thinking about $80 times 3-6 visits.
