Acne is common during pregnancy but, of course, it’s not guaranteed that your face will break out. The breakouts usually tend to hit sometime around week 6 of pregnancy.
During during the first trimester of pregnancy, hormone levels are increased, which heightens the production of sebum. All that extra sebum can clog up pores and cause bacteria to build up, leading to breakouts. In addition, women who have had acne in the past or have acne flare ups at the beginning of the menstrual cycle, are at a higher risk of developing acne during pregnancy.
Pregnancy acne is a natural condition. It usually goes away when your hormone levels return to normal. The safest thing to do is to avoid any prescription acne medications and rely on drug-free home remedies.
Below are a few suggestions for a skincare routine that the patient can follow during pregnancy:
Is baricitinib (Olumiant) a powerful new treatment for moderate to severe forms of alopecia areata?
Subcision for scars
Benzoyl peroxide for acne treatment
Non surgical hair replacement
