I was always fortunate as a teenager that I wasn’t very prone to breakouts. Occasionally, about once a month I’d get a few breakouts but it was something I came to recognize as normal when my hormones were acting crazy. Of course it drove me crazy when they did crop up here and there but for the most part, I didn’t complain. I just made sure that I kept my skin clean by washing in the morning, using a good moisturizer and doing a thorough rinse at night before bed.
Now, during my pregnancy with our little guy, that’s a completely different story. No one ever told me the horrors of pregnancy skin or how often I’d be fighting to keep my skin clear. Add to it that I was also pregnant during Winter when my skin is dry and at its absolute worst, and you can imagine the state my skin was in during that time. I was fighting flare-ups left and right!
Luckily enough for me, I already knew what to do to help reduce those flare-ups when they started happening and had some products stashed away that I trusted to help get rid of them fast. Zapzyt is a line of products for acne that I’ve used in the past that really helped me out when my skin was giving me problems. I’m sure some of you remember me sharing how to Zap Your Acne Breakout with Zapzyt last year. For those of you who don’t or who are new followers here on the blog, let me tell you how awesome these products are!
Zapzyt Treatment Gel consists of a maximum strength formula that is recommended by Dermatologists from all over. Penetrating your pores, the formula gets down deep where pimples first begin and fight against 99% of acne-causing bacteria so you can stop flare-ups in their tracks. This stuff goes on quick and dries just as quickly, leaving no trace of the acne fighting medication while it works hard to keep your skin healthy.
Wanting to ensure you get your cleanest skin ever, both morning and night? The Zapzyt Salicylic Acid Acne Wash is both alcohol & oil free and will get down deep inside of your pores to keep them clog free so all of the buildup down in them isn’t prime real-estate for new breakouts. This formula is also made with chamomile and aloe for a soothing feel that will leave you feeling refreshed as well as your skin feeling squeaky clean.
The last product I am confident I can count on during a breakout is the Zapzyt Pore Cleaning Scrub. As much as I love the Acne Wash in this line, I adore the Pore Cleaning Scrub even more and I’ll tell you why. Rather than using an abrasive chemical solution to clean your pores, the Pore Cleaning Scrub using tiny microbeads that help exfoliate while getting deep down to unclog gunked up pores. This stuff lifts oil, dirt, and acne-causing bacteria effortlessly, leaving a noticeably cleaner and overall healthier looking complexion.
Using all three of these products side by side with one another was a great way to keep my skin clear during my pregnancy. I was so impressed with the overall effect that I keep them in my beauty counter to this day for the rare occasion when I suffer an unsightly breakout. I definitely would recommend them to anyone, whether you’re experiencing pregnancy breakouts or just those pesky, Aunt Flow flare-ups!

Like you I didn’t break out in my teen or early 20’s, it wasn’t until my 4th pregnancy when my face decided now it was time, I’ve since got it in under control after 2 years of trying different products, not its back to the occasional stress pimple, here and there. This seems like a product worth trying out since you even mentioned that you use it for the occasional break out as well.
Lori GeurinJanuary 22, 2018
I wasn’t so lucky as you with my skin. I’ve had sensitive, acne-prone skin since the 5th grade (I think). It has improved a lot with age, but I still have the occasional breakout. Plus, we have teenagers. Will definitely have to check out these products! Thanks!
Joanna @ Everyday Made FreshJanuary 22, 2018
I was blessed with great skin, thankfully! However, my oldest daughter was not. She has always struggled. I know she has tried a lot of different products. I’ll have to tell her about this.
Karen MorseJanuary 22, 2018
I’ve heard so much about this product and I think it’s awesome to have this at home. It’s perfect for those breakouts and it’s a nice way to beat acne and pimples!
Melissa ChapmanJanuary 22, 2018
I don’t know if I will ever outgrow the occasional pimple. I do like the idea of a brand that really works and cleans and treats those pimples. I will look for it where I shop.
Laura @ Mommy DearestJanuary 22, 2018
I didn’t have major break outs when I was a teen but I found my skin actually got worse after Pregnancy, specifically after my second. I feel like my skin is now like all those break out horror stories you read from teens. I need to look into this.
Beth DavidsonJanuary 22, 2018
Oh geez, I can relate to the pregnancy flare-ups! My daughter is 6 months old now and I’ve still had a few recently. So annoying!
Cara @ Street smart nutritionJanuary 22, 2018
I think I’m fortunate to not experience too many major skin issues but I don’t do myself any favors by often forgetting to take care of my skin before and after workouts. My goal this year is to focus on consistently using sunblock and cleaning/moisturizing my face afterwards!
Michelle LeslieJanuary 23, 2018
That does sound good Angela. I’ve never really suffered from break outs until I went through menopause. I mean seriously, who would have thought. I’ll think I’ll give Zapzyt a try
JoannaJanuary 23, 2018
I was lucky to always have a clear skin, and never had to worry about breakouts or any red spots. These products sound great though, especially for when your hormones are playing up, like in pregnancy.
AnnMarie JohnJanuary 23, 2018
I’ve posted about this as well and I definitely recommend it. My son uses this for his breakouts and we’ve had nothing but good results!
Reesa LewandowskiJanuary 23, 2018
I go through phases where my skin is so bad. I need to look into this brand, I have never heard of it before.
Ana De- JesusJanuary 23, 2018
I love that the zapyt range of products are alcohol and oil free and also prevents against 99% of bacteria! Do you know if their products are cruelty free by any chance?
STEVIEJanuary 23, 2018
Oh my gosh!! I used to use ZAPZYT when I was in high school!! I used to love that stuff!! Looks like the line has expanded since I used it 🙂
Krystel | Disney on a budgetJanuary 23, 2018
I actually looked up the prices for these items and its not bad at all. Acne treatment can get really expensive.
Terri SteffesJanuary 23, 2018
I love learning about new and effective products and I really love it when people I know have high opinions of those products. Thanks for letting us in on your secret.
IthfifiJanuary 23, 2018
I hadn’t heard of Zapzyt until now, I love the brand name by the way! I suffer on and off with my skin so I always love to discover new brands, I am about to check out their website now. By the way your skin is looking flawless and so healthy!
kimberly lewisJanuary 23, 2018
I love to hear what people think about products. Every commercial tells you that their product works even when it doesn’t
BeaJanuary 23, 2018
This range of products looks really nice. I will go check out what else they got, I never have too many product for skin care!
Alicia TaylorJanuary 23, 2018
The only time I really had breakouts was when I was pregnant. Something about those hormones! Your skin looks great and this seems like it really worked.
MariaJanuary 23, 2018
I had never heard of this brand, but I am always down for a good scrubby exfoliator with microbeads. There’s just no better feeling than skin that’s totally, totally clean!!
Melanie williamsJanuary 23, 2018
My skin only seemed to breakout after age 23+ so since I have never found the 100% correct balance – interesting products and will give them a go x
Angela CamposJanuary 23, 2018
Not enough people talk about the reality of adult acne, and I’m glad to see I’m not the only one who has dealt with it! I’ll have to look into this product!
Cindy IngallsJanuary 23, 2018
Your skin looks amazing. It’s great to know this treatment works on hormonal breakouts because although they only pop up once a month or during pregnancy, they can be hard to deal with.
Jessica JoachimJanuary 23, 2018
I totally need some of this in my life! Ever since I had my son, my face has been terrible, like teenager again!
Angela TolsmaJanuary 23, 2018
I love the lightening bolt on the products. I didn’t have break outs as a teenager, but I have been getting them as an adult. I am always on the look out for something to help.
EmilyJanuary 23, 2018
I have hormonal acne and haven’t found a product that really works. I’ve tried a ton. Maybe I’ll try this!
SamanthaJanuary 24, 2018
I’ve been having a hard time with acne for several months. This sounds like good products, but I have allergic reactions to salicylic acid.
Fabiola ZefiJanuary 24, 2018
My only worry with any acne stuff is it drying my skin. I have dehydrated skin which causes more breakouts so this is something I always have to look out for.
Tanvi RastogiJanuary 24, 2018
I will have to look into it. I have heard good things about this brand. Love you pictures btw.
Kelly HutchinsonJanuary 24, 2018
The timing on my reading this post is ironic. My daughter has always had clear skin but is breaking out now. This would be a great product line for her.
JeanineJanuary 24, 2018
With my current pregnancy I’m dealing with break outs constantly. I feel like my teen. We both could for sure use some zapzyt in our routines!
Shubhada BhideJanuary 24, 2018
Oh!! I have heard good things about this product and my cousin use this. I will definitely check this out. It looks really interesting,
AnonymousJanuary 24, 2018
Zapzyt seems like the perfect product to help fight acne and other skin breakouts.
Tiffany HaywoodJanuary 24, 2018
Zapzyt seems like such a great product to help fight acne and other skin flare ups
Jill ConyersJanuary 24, 2018
I HAVE BEEN VERY FORTUNATE TO HAVE NATURALLY CLEAR SKIN, BUT THIS LOOKS LIKE A GREAT OPTION FOR PEOPLE THAT NEED THIS TYPE OF SKIN CARE.
Donah @ SJBJanuary 24, 2018
You look radiant. I could also attest to this product, coz I have used this too. And it does magic to my skin!
RachelJanuary 24, 2018
I’ve seen commercials for this line but I have never read any reviews. I had some serious skin issues when I was pregnant as well.
Ayana PittersonJanuary 25, 2018
Your skin is FLAWLESS!!!!!!! I wasn’t so lucky to avoid the breakouts as a teenager, and the black spots that came with them. Thankfully, as an adult, I don’t have to deal with them as much now.
HeatherJanuary 25, 2018
My oldest daughter needs a good routine for her skin and this just might be it! She’s very active and while still young, is definitely at an age to start taking better care of her skin.
BrittJanuary 25, 2018
I still deal with acne when I’m in stressful seasons. I would love to try these products out and see if they help!
Agnes VazhureJanuary 26, 2018
I have heard about good things in this products and I think its time for me to try this.
steve waltersJanuary 26, 2018
My wife and I are always looking for new and better skin care products for our faces. I’m not saying we necessarily have bad acne, but we just can’t handle it when our faces do break out, haha! These sound great. We will order some.
PreetJanuary 26, 2018
My skin goes through phases, it is bad sometimes and I do get the nice skin in between. I need to look into this brand, I have never heard of it before..
