    Anyone care to talk about Acne in Women? I have read a lot about how some women get Acne when they are pregnant... Can anyone validate that?

    Jessie, it's true.
    Due to reasons of hormone, emotion pregnant women may have this issue.
    1. Often wash your face with warm water, if doctor allows, try surfur soap.
    2. No hot food, less oil intake, and more fruit and vegetable.

    You will have a good baby and a nicer face.

    Thanks - Good advice Tina and thanks.  Just to clarify though, this was a research question hehe.  Any pregnant women, who have suffered, feel free to share your stories (and remedies).

    Usually, my skin was clear when I was pregnant, because the hormones were fairly steady, compared to the fluctuation during a normal month.

      This is what I have heard about pregnancy in relation to skin appearance. I have not had the pleasure of being pregnant yet but my skin has always had acne problems to some extent and have had people tell me that when I have a baby I will probably find I have great skin and hair!
