You've just become pregnant and you feel wonderful, then suddenly you begin to notice acne very similar to when you were a teenager!

This is a very common occurance during pregnancy as your skin struggles to remain balanced.

What exactly causes unbalanced skin and other common skin challenges during pregnancy?
  • Pregnancy acne/oily skin - During pregnancy levels of estrogen and progesterone increase dramatically. The increase in progesterone triggers the oil glands of the skin to enlarge and produce more oily substance called sebum. As a result, excessive oil and the shed skin cells lining the hair follicles block the skin pores and make skin susceptible to bacteria. This can lead to inflamed skin and acne outbreak.
  • Dry skin - dry skin  can also be a problem during pregnancy as the body requires extra blood and body fluid to sustain a growing baby, and that extra moisture is often drawn from the skin, making it extremely difficult to maintain skin hydration. 
  • nonspecific dermatitis- changes in hormones during pregnancy can induce red, flaky patches on the face.
  • spider angiomas - due to hormonal changes and possibly weight gain during pregnancy, pressure in the veins increases, causing blood vessels in the face to enlarge, leaving a red, spiderlike mark.
  • melasma - clearly defined brown patches on the face typically on the cheekbones and forehead, caused by an excessive amount of melanin found in certain skin cells as a result of pregnancy hormones.
