Pregnancy Hormones And Skin

My skin has gone to c__p in the last few days and I'm blaming it on pregnancy hormones. It's not pimples, just a congested, oilyness to it. Any fellow sufferers have an answer to this problem?

Try a stringent. They help to take excess oil out of skin. You may have to use it in the morning and before bed. I was like that too when I was pregnant and it worked pretty good for me.

I'll try that. What brand? I don't particularly want to use anything with medication in it, obviously.

I'm not exactly sure what brand but they sell it at regular Dollar Stores for like $2 or so. They are alchohol based but they work good.

I used to use the brand Sea Breeze...and it worked pretty good. I don't think it has any medication in it just alcohol......I think most brands of cleansers have an astrigent in their line....try Neutragena, Clearasil...etc...just go to the beauty aisle.

You could try out Proactive, that seems to work pretty well.

i've been having the same problem. My doctor prescribed an antibiotic cream that is safe to use durring pregnancy to clear it up. So, maybe try talking with your doctor. good luck with it though. i know that being fat is enough to make me feel uns_xy, then adding oily skin didn't help either.
