Hi people, I'm in my first trimester and am experiencing really awful breakouts on my face, neck and shoulders. I have no idea how to tackle this problem and it is driving me crazy. I am open to any suggestions from natural/herbal remedies to cosmetics, tablets, diet, anything????????

I feel your pain!! this happened to me when i stopped taking the pill so we could have babies. It's definitely due to hormones, i didn't leave the house for 2 weeks which felt like eternity. It's was very dpressing when normally I have super clear skin i just didn't feel like me at all! It did clear after about 2 weeks but little spots on my neck stayed for a few months but i could quite easily cover up with makeup. I couldn't use any natural products as the essestial oils made it worse. I use Dermalogica products which i think helped. Hang in there it will pass.

Oooooooh the joys of hormones, its going to happen, i couldn't escape it, its just your body reacting to having a baby, it clears soon promise xxx i was terrible with spots everywhere i tried everything and anything. just something that comes with pregnancy x
