Hi I am a 22year old married girl and 4months pregnant with my first baby. I have noticed that ever since I got pregnant my skin is horrible. My skin has always been acne prone but never like this..I have pimples all over my face specially on cheeks. I know I can't use certain medicines and creams because they can cause harm to my baby but I still want to know what can I do to lessen this. Also, my skin is getting really dry.

Hi Anonymous

Congratulations on your pregnancy!

We have an article on pregnant skin: http://www.empowher.com/pregnancy/content/skin-changes-during-pregnancy

Beyond that, I suggest talking to your obstetrician about which treatments are safe while you are pregnant. This is a common issue, so I know your OB will have some advice for you.

Please let us know what you find out so it can help other pregnant women. Thank you for writing and good luck.
