Pimples attack!

Thursday, August 21, 2008

I've never had a problem with pimples since I got rid of the acne in my early twenties. Back then, I tried everything to solve the break-out (I almost tried the Proactiv acne cream). My self-esteem was at on all-time low -- I was at the time looking for love and a job. Until I was introduced to a very nice dermatologist. After a series of sessions here and there and taking a very expensive medication, my face cleared and even the backne was gone. I don't use any product to maintain it, just water and very mild soap.

Now that I'm pregnant (as I said in a previous post), the pimples are getting uncontrollable again. Sigh. My OB just told me to live with it (hehe) and they'll be gone once I give birth. For now she suggests I continue with my routine of water and mild soap. And if I'm not satisfied, I can use any product in the market (which I'm not sensitive with so I still need to test) as long as it does not have retinoin/retinol/retinoid. She said that ingredient is not good for the baby and is not advised by doctors to use by women who still wanna bear children. ;)
