Worst acne I've ever had!! Lock Rss

Hi Ladies,

Over the last couple of weeks I've experienced the worst case of pimples that I've ever had before. I feel like the elephant woman!

Is this normal to experience after pregnancy (my little boy is 7 weeks old), a result of me being so run down and breastfeeding sucking all the goodness out of me or just bad luck? Has this happened to anyone else?

A mum and I were talking about this the other day outside our preschool. (The kids preschool, not ours)!) She has a 2 month old and is having the same problem. It is just a hormonal imbalance I would think. After the birth, the pregnancy hormones are displaced by postnatal hormones and lactating hormones and who knows what's no wonder we're a mess. My little one is four months now and all that sort of thing has passed. ". Maybe try a mild cleanser and stay makeup free as much as possible; that's all I did. Anyway, most people don't even look at us mums once the baby is born - the baby gets all the attention! Congratulations and enjoy your little one.

hi Jools i know exactly how you feel. i have a 10wk old bub and no cure (i'm sorry) for the pimples that i've had since late pregnacy. i've been told its hormonal, but its not really very comforting. smile

I also have acne. Mine started when I became pregnant last year! I tried everything & hated being told it is just hormones. I have recently been using baby sorbolene cream to cleanse & moisturise. It seems to be working for me & is worth a try. I can still see it but it is a lot better & much easier to cover up with makeup.


I also have had bad pimples since I have had the bubs. Everyone keeps telling me don't worry it will go away when your hormones even out. Weird, one week my face is perfectly clear then the next I get pimples galore. Now my face is clearing up quite well , I use an alcohol free toner and baby sorbelene. Also I notice if I eat junk food just once it sets them off as well.
my bub is 9 weeks old and I too for the past few weeks have had extermly bad pimples, no cure.
