Zinc oxide, the same sort of stuff you find in diaper rash cream, is really the very best stuff you can use on pimples. It's also what clown white makeup used to be made of, (maybe it still is), and my grampa, who was a circus clown, said clowns always had the best complexions he'd ever seen. Just find a water based ointment, without petroleum or fish oil in it. It is very white of course, but putting it on and leaving it for at least 20 minutes a day will clear up breakouts faster than anything else.
Tea tree oil is also good, but you should ask your doctor, since it is a potent essential oil that is not recommended for use on infants, so might not be safe for your baby while you are pregnant.
