The Non Joys of Pregnancy.
   Its such a blessing to see that positive symbol on your test when you've been trying to conceive.  For weeks you glow - mostly due to "morning" (All-day) sickness.     Now with the lovely changes my skins seems to have jumped back to the land of a teenager. SPOTS everywhere. On my chest and face and gosh does it make you feel un attractive.    I had terrible acne in high school and happily in my early twenties this calmed down.   I tried using clean and clear which seemed to aggravate the situation to a while new level.   I don't enjoy caking on makeup but lately it helps me just get out the door - - Any suggestions on getting my skin back to some normality?

Breakouts from plucking
Every time I pluck the odd hair on my chin or on my eyebrows I get a pimple . It's so upsetting, I've tried applying alcohol to my skin afterwards but my skin is so sensitive I have to wash it off before it starts to burn. Does anyone have any solutions to this problem?

Acne Scars ):
So I have a really big event coming up in about a month and I really want to get rid of my acne scars since I hate the look of make-up caked onto my face (I have super oily skin so it is always noticeable)   My routine right now is fairly simple. I wipe off make up with tea tree oil wipes I wash with Jack Black's deep dive moisturize with Origin's Night-a-mins and use glamglow supermud clearing treatment twice a week   What products do you reccomend me adding/switching?

Is it ok to use the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster with Proactive Plus?
I only use Proactive + in the mornings when I know I will be inside.(When I'm outside I use just SPF)  I only use the Pore targeting Treatment and the Complexion perfecting Hydrator. I don't use the cleanser because it is too harsh for my skin. I have oily skin and the Proactive does not help with that, but it helps with my acne, so I still use it, I just make sure to carry blotting papers with me. I wanted to put the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster with it to help with the sun damage I have. Will that be ok for my Acne Prone, sun damaged, oily skin? Or will they counteract each other and be ineffective, or would it be to harsh on my skin?

What to do about early teen pimples (not acne)
My son, who recently turned 11 now has little tiny pimples all over his forehead, cheeks, etc. They are flat, not red irritated acne type. Puberty is right around the corner and he has been growing like crazy and crabbier too.   He has been good (mostly) about not picking at them. I gave him an acne facewash and benzoil peroxide pads to use after washing his face. He is doing in twice per day and not seeing much change. I'm figuring he is in for acne at some point since he Dad and I both had it (I got accutane at 30 and plan to take him in for it if his acne gets bad). Just looking for recommendations right now that might help with the little pimples.   Thanks!

Would it be safe to use the Peter Thomas Sleeping Mask while on Accutane?
Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Power C x 30™ Vitamin C Brightening Sleeping Mask   Yes or no while on Accutane? I have acne scars left over from my Acne. I am still in my first month of Accutane. Or do you have any other product reccomendations for acne scars?   I have asked my dermatologist if I need to avoid certain products and all she said was to avoid topical treatments.    I have had to change my skin care because my skin was getting irritated from my Fresh Soy cleanser as well as the Korres rose+vitamin C sleeping facial. I am now using the Boscia cool cleaning oil and the Korres greek yogurt moisturizers.    If you guys have any other suggestions please let me know thank you!

Best make up remover for oily/combo acne prone skin?
I use proactiv+ to help with all my break outs. I have always used baby wipes to remove my make up because they work (even on waterproof make up) & I can get a ton for $3,  but I'm starting to worry it's not taking off enough of my make up which is why I'm still having little bit bumps every now and then. Does anyone have any opinions on which make up removers really made a difference for them?

Pregnancy-Safe Lightweight Facial Moisturizer?
Okay, folks, so here's the deal!   I need a new facial moisturizer. I'm running low on my jar of FAB Ultra Repair Cream, and I'm pretty sure it's a bit too heavy for my hormonal skin. I've been suffering from an influx of acne spots and whiteheads that I'm struggling to control without pregnancy no-nos. The ingredients I'm looking to avoid in my skincare ritual are:   Vitamin A (aka Retinyl Palmitate, Retinol, Retinoids and its derivatives) Salicylic Acid (My doctor did OK low percentages - 1% or less - but I'd like to minimize use if possible. Sadly, my skin isn't agreeing with the lack of BHA!) Benzoyl Peroxide   What I would like is a lightweight moisturizer that absorbs quickly and won't further clog up my congested skin, preferably for $50 or less (the more budget-friendly, the better). I'd also like a serum or a treatment that can help to clear out my sad pregnancy skin without the use of Salicylic Acid. My current skincare routine is as follows:   -Cleanse with Philosophy's Purity Cleanser. Double-cleanse if I'm wearing makeup that day. (I am considering a switch to Boscia Makeup Breakup Oil and Clarifying Cleanser, but I still have a lot to go before I need a refill.) -Tone with Michael Todd Organics Blue-Green Algae Toner -Apply Algenist Complete Renewal Eye Balm -Apply Boscia Tsubaki Oil in the morning. Allow to set in and apply lip balm. -In the evening, I currently use Ole Henriksen's Invigorating Night Gel after toning. I really like this product and I don't believe it is the source of my skin aggravation. I also like that it is working to brighten my old acne scars. -I follow up the OH Invigorating Night Gel with a light application PTR hydrating mask (rose or cucumber) or FAB Ultra Repair Cream. The gel alone does not appear to be enough hydration for my skin, as when I tried to omit an extra layer of moisturizer, my skin flakes and peels.   Twice per week I use a face mask. Right now it is Origins Charcoal Mask. I also exfoliate with Exfolikate twice per week on days that I'm not using my mask; I skip the invigorating night gel on days when I exfoliate. I need to reorder some Exfolikate as well!   Any suggestions or help is greatly appreciated. I have referenced MakeupByTiffanyD's pregnancy skincare ritual and I also follow EmilyNoel... but I'm not sure I have the same concerns as them, and I don't want to completely switch over to everything Tiffany D is using because that would require purging my entire skincare line.   Thanks everyone for the help!

Cleaner/ face wash
I have been struggling to find a good face wash for my face and I was wanting some advice as to what all you beautiful ladies out there do to keep your skin clear and acne free.   Right now I am using Kate Somerville  detox daily cleanser and I have been starting to break out badly on my forehead and chin. I also use clean and clear advantage spot and it has not been working very well on my stubborn pimples and break outs.   I have been feeling very overwhelmed with all the products out there and I know it is going to take some time for me to find what works, but if any one has any advice as to what they do that would be great!   I have oily skin and I tend to break out on my forehead and chin. And when I get pimples or breakouts, they are the huge, red, painful ones that hurt!

Budget skincare routine
My sister asked me for help in finding her some new skin care products. Her biggest concerns are enlarged pores on her nose and cheeks, post-acne scarring on her chin, and wrinkle prevention.    Her skin is oily and slightly blemish prone, and she is 26. She is currently using Clinique foaming face wash and gel lotion. I'd like to get her away from foaming products and mineral oil, but the catch is that she can't spend more than $25 ish per product and I don't have experience with stuff in that range.    Any suggestions? I'm thinking it would be good to first switch the face wash out, then the lotion, then add in a toner and serum.
