Holy Oil Slick!

What on earth?! I have definitely had some acne flair ups this pregnancy. But the past 2 days, it's like my whole face has been dipped in cooking grease. My glasses are slipping down my nose. I'm washing with oil-free acne wash several times per day but still having to wipe all of the excess oil every hour or so. It's just sitting on my face. SO GROSS!!!!!! Just needed to vent...

Oh, what fun! ;) My nose has been a little oilier than usual and I've been breaking out here and there. Just one of those fun hormonal things.

I used to be an esthetician years ago, so what I would suggest is not washing your face with the oil-free cleanser so often, because what you'll actually

I'm having the same problem and I've been wondering if it has to do with the hospital...guess I'm just lucky too. lol My face feels gross even after I shower. I'm going to ask someone to bring me an astringent because I need it! Let's not even get into back acne...sigh.
