pregnant!” he exclaimed. It’s wonderful news to soon be a mother. But some moms
tend to encounter skin problems. Acne is experienced by many women during their
pregnancy’s first and second trimesters. Why does this happen you may ask?
Blame it on the increase in hormones called androgens. The increase in
androgens can cause the overproduction of sebum on the skin. This oil will clog
pores leading to bacteria, inflammation and those pesky breakouts. Not only do
you have to deal with the overproduction, but finding safe prescriptions and over-the-counter treatments to avoid birth
defects. Do not stress! Instead, getting to the root cause of your acne and
preventing it from happening will save you a lot of time and money
in the end. Not to mention, since we know that the origin of acne is internal,
it makes sense to treat it internally, right? AcnEase will ease your mind with
tackling current and potential breakouts! Here is information about pregnancy
acne that can help keep you and your unborn baby safe.
pregnancy will not last forever and neither will the acne. Psychological
instability such as nervous feelings, stress, fear of childbirth, and hysteria are variables of acne. In
addition, an unhealthy diet such as eating sugary, greasy, and spicy food, bad habits namely
smoking and alcohol abuse, and the lack of
fresh air are factors of acne as well. It is advised to also avoid bad skin
care which is the use of low-quality cosmetics or comedogenic products, and
insufficient cleaning of skin pores. All of this can trigger the appearance of
acne during pregnancy.

regime. A good defense is done with the best offense. Clean your face gently
with a mild, soap-free cleanser twice a day, once in the morning and once at
night. It is advised to wash and rinse thoroughly, particularly around your
hairline and jaw, where pores have a tendency to get clogged. Counteract breakouts and scars by taking great care
of your skin.
Use an oil-free moisturizer. While it
may appear to be unreasonable, it is recommended to use an oil-free moisturizer
that can actually help limit the aggravation. Skin that is overly dried by
harsh acne soaps can sometimes lead to breakouts.
Eat healthy with fruits and vegetables.
Increase your dietary intake of vitamin A which helps keep skin healthy such as
eggs and carrots. Don’t over do it, since an excess of A has been shown to
cause birth defects.

and abstaining from alcohol, of course. It's smooth sailing, however, the
health and safety of your growing baby are important. Here’s a few Dont’s to
give attention to, while pregnant.
Be gentle! Just because during the pregnancy the skin is extra
sensitive, don’t be tempted to scrub aggressively. Over-washing your skin of
its natural moisture, makes it more prone to breakouts due to the dryness of
the skin. Don't squeeze or pick at pimples either, as tempted as you might be.

Topical products! Two common topical
medications, beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) and salicylic acid may be absorbed through
the skin. Read the labels carefully and don’t purchase any products if
salicylic acid or BHA is on the ingredient list. If you’ve used products
containing beta-hydroxy or salicylic acid before you knew you were pregnant,
don’t worry. Just stop now!
appointments! Don’t book and cancel microdermabrasion appointments or chemical
peel treatments until after delivery. Your skin is extra sensitive during
