Anyone else have breakouts like crazy right now?  It is driving me CRAZY!  On top of that, my hair is just... blech!  It feels greasy all the time and it won't do a darn thing I want it to.  I'm avoiding mirrors at all costs these days. :(

Yes!!  I had to go off some medication I was taking for acne, and now my face is horrible.  I can't wait for that to go away, for sure.  My hair is really thin, and it's just even more limp lately.  Where's the glow we're supposed to have??  lol

Oh my goodness.  Antibiotics? It must be really bad (and really miserable- I'm sorry!).  What is that saying?  Baby girls steal beauty from their moms?  Does that mean we are all having girls?  haha!

In regards to my acne..I have tried everything. Rodan and Fields skincare has been the only thing that has worked wonders! (the creators of Proactiv.  Seriously this product saved my skin and my self-esteem.  You can check it out here: https://jvirion.myrandf.com/Shop/Unblemish

I so know what you're talking about. I had gotten my skin in pretty good shape but fell off my careful skin care regimen after I found out I was pregnant.. I slept around the clock for the first 2 weeks and that was enough to cause a horrible breakout that I'm still dealing with a month later. I was using a product from the pharmacy but that wasn't working fast enough and I ordered some proactiv knowing it will help... It came last week and it's working, slowly but surely.
