Both pregnancy acne fighters are made in the US by Mambino Organics and formulated by an internationally honored esthetician who’s also a mom of twins.
Use Overnight Blemish SOS and Moroccan Clay Renewing Face Mask separately or in tandem to rapidly shrink pregnancy acne blemishes and prevent new ones from forming.
If this is your first pregnancy, you may be surprised to discover yourself suffering from a sudden outbreak of pimples. “I look like a teenager again—not in a good way!” many women commonly exclaim in the first weeks of pregnancy, when acne suddenly appears.
Even worse is finding out that salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide—the most common acne fighting ingredients in most over-the-counter and prescription acne treatments—are contraindicated for use during pregnancy.
At Maternitique, we specialize in offering pregnant women the safest, most effective ways to treat pregnancy acne available—so you can be free from worry while you support your skin’s pregnancy glow.
For some reason I can’t fully explain, I’ve been breaking out lately (yes, I’m newly married; no, I’m not pregnant). Fortunately, these two new pregnancy acne products arrived at Maternitique just as my skin started to get zany.
Overnight Blemish SOS came immediately to my rescue with its zinc oxide, tea tree oil and chamomile formula. I’ve been using it each night for the last week to 10 days since we got them in stock and I’m thrilled with the results.
The white liquid acne treatment stings a little when you first put it on, but as it dries, you no longer feel it. It’s designed as an overnight acne treatment because the zinc content makes the treatment pure white—you have white dots on your face in every spot! Not exactly conducive for day time use. And my husband looks puzzled every night I come to bed, even though I’ve explained to him what it is (I can only assume he never notices the blemishes in the first place.)
In the morning when I wake up, the acne blemishes have either vanished (if they were just beginning to form or were on their way out already) or shrunken dramatically (if they were at their peak).
The Moroccan Clay Renewing Face Mask & Scrub is equally pleasant to use and effective.
Tap a teaspoon or so of the powdered, gray clay into the palm of your hand, add enough water to form a paste. With your fingertips, you gently rub the paste in circles over your face. To use it as a daily scrub, rub this for 1-2 minutes. For use as a mask, leave the paste on your face to dry.
With lukewarm water, rinse off the mask/scrub and be amazed at how smooth your skin feels! In addition to the baby-soft smoothness, you’ll notice smaller pores, too. On the package, Mambino suggests adding a few drops of lemon juice to the paste as you mix it to help prevent and lighten pregnancy melasma, or the mask of pregnancy.
Love your pregnant skin and help to banish pregnancy acne without the use of harsh chemicals. You can clean, clarify and renew your pregnant complexion with Overnight Blemish SOS ($22) and Moroccan Clay Renewing Face Mask & Scrub ($14).
