Re: Pregos and Acne

Stay away from anything containing steroids, and stay away from Accutane...

My skin always breaks out when I'm pg...however, I have found a direct connection to how much water I drink. Since I've DRASTICALLY increased my water consumption (I try for 8 16oz glasses a day, due to the multiple pregnancy plus chances of dehydration in the heat) my skin has REALLY cleared up. Still some subtle acne on the t-zone, but way better than a month ago.

Any simple acne treatments (like Clean & Clear) are I think OK...but honestly, drinking tons of water is the best thing I have found yet.
