Acne Now!? What Gives?!

So you’ve had perfect skin since college but since you’ve been pregnant, you’ve noticed pimples popping up. What!?

Pregnant women consulting with doctor about acne

Why are you breaking out?

Yes, you can blame pregnancy hormones surges once again for this "fun" symptom. This time, you can thank progesterone, the hormone that makes your glands increase acne-producing secretions. Eww. You can also attribute pregnancy blemishes to the excess amount of fluids your pregnant body retains – fluids filled with acne-causing toxins.

What to do about it

Check with your doctor, as she may be able to recommend an over-the-counter or prescription cream or medication to treat your breakouts. Don’t use any medication on those pimples until your doctor has approved it.

Avoid retinoid treatments like Retin-A and Accutane that are absorbed through the skin and could enter your and your baby’s bloodstream or your breast milk.

Prevent those pimples

  • Wash your face with a gentle daily cleanser morning and night. Remember not to scrub, simply use your fingers in a circular motion all over your face and neck.
  • Cut back on sugary baked goods and fried foods with saturated fats that can promote acne in skin. Keep your diet clean and healthy. Add in some foods that are good for your skin like almonds, avocado, fresh fruits and vegetables.
  • Stay out of the sun. Your skin may be more sensitive to the sun during pregnancy, particularly if you are using a doctor-approved acne medication. If you are going to be in the sun, use one with a high SPF designed for the face or wear a hat to protect your face.
  • Wash your hair on a regular basis, or more often if it’s particularly oily -- especially during pregnancy. Refrain from wearing hats all the time and wash your towels and sheets clean as well. Take notice when holding the phone against your skin as well. Wipe down your office phone and smart phone before and after making calls.

Don’t touch!

We know it’s tempting to pop that pimple when it pops up. But just as your mom told you when you were in middle school, don’t squeeze it! You could end up with a permanent scar on your face instead of a temporary (albeit embarrassing) pimple.
