Pregnancy acne


Along with my terrible morning sickness, I’ve got the worst acne as well. It’s really getting to me, I don’t want to go out on walks in case people judge/I’m trying to hide all my symptoms from my daily work video calls. Has any managed to calm their face down/does it go at some point? I’m just over 10 weeks, feel like I’ve been pregnant for years already.

Yes my acne started to flare up soon into my pregnancy too, overtime it has calmed its self down. Think its do with hormones & oils in your skin as I found my hair went greasy like the day after washing it, again, this settled down & both were just passing phases.

I'd avoid using any make up, wash only with water & pat your skin dry, don't rub.

Fresh air also helps, so if you can get out for a daily walk, maybe go in late evening if you are worried about people seeing.

I wouldn't worry and wonder what people think about you skin, its none of their business so try not to let it worry you
