Can someone explain to me why my face has looked worst as a mom than it did as sixteen year old Chanelle? I’ve never had more acne in my life!
I feel like in the media they go on about the struggles of skin care when you’re a teenager but completely disregard the intensity of skin problems that comes with motherhood.
I’ve had acne problems since giving birth to my youngest. Which is surprising because while pregnant with her I had no skin issues. I couldn’t say the same for my oldest. They usually say giving birth to girls takes away your beauty and that was obvious the moment I found out I was pregnant with my oldest.
My acne problems used to come on cue a week before my period and during ovulation. But now that I have been exercising daily, which includes running outside- my break outs have gotten worst. I sweat a lot while exercising, so that’s likely the cause.
I’ve tried harsh acne cleansers in the past and have been warned by my doctor to be careful I’m not using particular acne cleansers, should I get pregnant. At one point I thought I was pregnant and I got a strict warning to stop using all acne cleansers immediately!
That experience actually made me toss out those cleansers. I mean, my husband and I aren’t trying to get pregnant but if this chemical can hurt an unborn baby, what is it doing to my body after getting rid of the acne?
