Changing hormone levels in pregnancy may increase sebum production and lead to oily skin and acne breakouts. This often occurs during early pregnancy. Acne during pregnancy may be mild, moderate or severe. It may be of new onset or an exacerbation of a pre-existing problem. Skinsmart recommends the following products to help to alleviate these symptoms. Please consult with a dermatologist for a skin assessment and to discuss whether you will need prescription acne treatment. Not all treatments and products are safe to use during pregnancy.
