How's everyone's skin doing?<br><br>
I'm getting a few light brown pigmentation marks showing up on the sides of my cheeks.<br><br>
Acne is most prevalent in my cleavage.<br><br>
There are scratch marks on my boobs and thighs from itching my old stretch marks. So far, no new stretch marks.

No new stretch marks. I get little tiny acne bumps on my chest but not noticeable, just to me. a tiny bit of acne will creep up on my face, but not as bad as 1st trimester.<br>
No pigmented skin...I have freckles all OVER anyways.

The acne hasn't been nearly as bad this time around (hurray!). I am already getting the mask though, and I've noticed that my facial skin is way senstive. I'm also having extreme dry skin all over. Haven't noticed any stretch marks yet.

Ugh. Some acne on face. More on chest and upper back. I hate it! I talked to the OB about it yesterday, and they basically said that there is nothing that you can do. A friend of a friend told me that washing the ance areas with head and shoulders shampoo helped. I started doing that last night.<br><br>
A few tiny stretch marks on hip/belly area and a few on breasts. No skin darkening yet.

my face is the same as pre-preg which is regular (every 4 weeks) zits in the same spots i always get them. it's my only lingering "pms" symptom.<br><br>
but on the rest of my body, my skin seems more clear - no zits on chest or back like i get sometimes. skin softer than usual.<br><br>
ETA: forgot to mention my boobs are covered on the bottom half w/ stretch marks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

So much for the pregnancy glow... I have mild acne when I'm not pregnant but it got much worse during the first trimester. Face, back and chest. It seems to be clearing up a little now so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Luckily, no stretch marks so far but I'm barely showing so I might be in for them later. Like PP my skin everywhere is super dry and my belly is itching like crazy even though I'm always putting lotion on it.

Pimples on my face <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> great! I was the same with DS and it got worse as I got 'more' pregnant. On the day I had him...YUCK it was gross, i looked like a teenage boy.<br><br>
The rest of my body is very dry.<br><br>
so all in all...i am in NO way 'glowing' <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

My face looks pretty decent most of the time, just a couple zits here and there (which is GREAT compared to the first trimester, and even decent compared to pre pregnancy).<br><br>
But I'm super zitty between my boobs. It's so damn annoying. Here I have these nice bigger boobs and they're all broken out! No fair! Definitely slightly darker nipples... and I'm starting to get stretch marks on my butt and boobs. Ugh.

My skin seems to be doing really well after some mild acne during the first trimester. I started a new skin care routine though.<br><br>
I exfoliate every other day with a mixture of sugar and olive oil. Just add enough oil to the sugar that it doesn't dissolve, it just kind of coats the sugar. I throw in a bit of vanilla extract so I smell nice. I usually have VERY dry skin and live in an apartment with forced air heat, so winter time here is very very dry.<br><br>
I've been washing my face daily with honey! Just regular clover honey. I haven't had any breakouts or bumps or red spots since I started. It's not sticky. I don't like the smell of honey that much, but it doesn't linger.
