Does anyone have any recommendations for safe Acne soaps. I'm one of those people that gets acne at 31 years old! And when I get pregnant it becomes teenageville on my face. This pregnancy I'm going to try to eat more raw fruits/veggies and stay away from simple sugars/carbs and drink lots of water.<br><br>
But I need to immediately switch to a safe soap too. Right now I have the AcneFree from Costco and I know that isn't technically approved for pregnancy.<br><br>
Anyone have any soaps or herbal remedies they can speak to?

Would you be willing to try the Oil Cleansing Method? <a href="http://www.theoilcleansingmethod.com/" target="_blank">http://www.theoilcleansingmethod.com/</a><br><br>
I do this and it cleaned out my huge pores on day one...I would imagine it would help with acne, too.

I am to lazy to do the oil cleansing, but I have hardly broken out at all using a sulphur soap. I use the one by Grandpa's from vitacost.

No-poo? I'm sorry, what does that mean!? I don't already have pregnancy brain do I? I really don't think it went away after baby #3. :) I'm assuming something along the lines of no products!? Tell me how that works.

LoL... sorry...<br><br>
No-poo means no shampoo (or conditioner)<br><br>
I'll quote myself from another post....<br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

shampoo and soaps strip your hair of their natural oils and then you need to use conditioner to put oil back... when you don't wash your hair for a few days your scalp overcompensates by producing too much oil which makes for greasy looking hair and the need to wash hair often and the cycle continues...<br><br>
By not using shampoo you are not stripping the hair and just letting the oils do their thing... no-poo hair doesn't look greasy at all (once you have transitioned) and I think looks healthier than shampooed hair... also no more chemicals or expensive shampoos...</td>

I think what happened when I went no-poo was that there were no longer products going on my face... the shampoo that strips the oils (not just from hair) and then the conditioner which leaves a layer... (again not just on hair)... so going no-poo cleared my skin...<br><br>
oh... <a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=544490&highlight=no+poo" target="_blank">and here is a thread with pics</a> that I started a few a few months after I started no-poo (wow... I was pregnant with my last ds) ...
