White heads

Anyone know how to get rid of whiteheads? Or what causes them? My skin is terrible and I cannot get to the route of it...There are certain creams (retin-a) that do work on me, but right now I am trying to get pregnant and my doctor said it may not have a good impact on pregnancy.

How can I get rid of this completely unattractive trait?

you may be having a reaction to certain foods you are eating. It may be an allergic reaction. work to find the underlying issue, imho.

A lot of acne issues are hormonal -- yours may be worse just because you're pregnant. Never mind the acne -- Congratulations! My advice is to relax about your skin, and it will be back to normal in less than 9 months -- although nothing _else_ in your life may ever be the same. :-)

Check out Paula Begouin's site - she has some good articles about whiteheads and blackheads and how to get rid of them. I've been using her skin care products for about 6 months and my blackheads have reduced considerably.

and yes, hormones do wreak havoc...
