I want to share an excellent tip I just learned from a friend on how to rid acne.

I’ve always had a fairly clear face with the exception of puberty and the occasional breakout that cleared up with a store brand acne face wash. I have never needed to visit a dermatologist.

Then my whole world changed and I got pregnant.

My hormones got out of whack and BAM.

Uncontrollable acne.

Nine months later, I popped out my baby.

Uncontrollable acne.

Another nine months later… My acne is still a problem.

What do I do? I complain to my best friend.

She tells me that her doctor gave her the cure-all solution.

This solution is SIMPLE.

Wash your face two times daily with a bar of Dial soap. 

Nothing girly and soft feeling like Aveeno, Clinique or Dove. Dial.
Funky smelling, boring, old, been there, done that, your grandpa uses Dial.

I laughed at my friend and said, “Ugh… BAR SOAP?” grumbling, “okay…” I ignored her advice and then complained to her again several days later.

She says, “You seriously need to try Dial. It works. It dries up your skin and clears away the acne.”

A few more days of grumbling about Dial and I broke down and bought it. Boring, old, non-feminine, plain Dial.

And now my face is miraculously free of acne. I didn’t even have to wash my face twice a day and my pores have already shrunken down after a few uses. My forehead is much clearer now and it doesn’t bother me at all anymore. Thank you Dial. Thank you friend for sharing valuable information with a pizza-faced new mother.

So there you have it, an easy way to rid acne caused by pregnancy! I really suggest you all try it. It’s super simple and cheap. Double win.

*NOTE: I know this isn’t a natural, chemical-free solution so I would only recommend this for tough acne breakouts that are just dragging you down.
