As your hormone levels rise, your pores production of oil increases, leading to oily skin. In some pregnancies, this new oil slick causes that wonderful "pregnancy glow" that so many women get. But for others, oily skin is just a recipe for disaster on your face. Whatâ€™s worse, though, is that you may find that those pimples arenâ€™t limited to just your face. In addition to facial acne, youâ€™ve also got body acne during pregnancy.
To help keep your face pimple-free, wash your face two to three times a day with an oil-free mild cleanser. Many natural skin care products avoid both oil and irritating soaps in their products as do some major cosmetic brands. However, be sure that you donâ€™t over cleanse your skin as that can strip your skin of the oil it produces, causing your pores to produce even more oil.
After cleansing, rinse your face thoroughly with lukewarm water so you can be sure to be rid of any type of soap residue that may be left and gently pat dry. Follow this up with an oil-free moisturizer. Other ways to keep your skin looking its best:
Drink lots of water to help keep your skin and your body hydrated and moisturized
Avoid touching your pimples as this can cause the spread of bacteria leading to more pimples
Avoid picking your pimples as this can lead to acne scarsLinkback: https://tubagbohol.mikeligalig.com/index.php?topic=19156.0
