Pregnancy and Acne
If you're entering your 7th or 8th week of pregnancy, some of you may notice acne on your face, and on other parts of your body. You might hear from other mothers and mothers-to-be that that is an indication that you are carrying a girl. Don't put all your eggs in one basket, because acne being the indication that you're carrying a girl, is an old wives tale.
Acne during pregnancy just means that our hormones are all over the place. There is a lot happening inside us. To deal with the acne, talk with your doctor about products that are safe to use during pregnancy. When you wash your face, don't wipe your face dry with your towel. Pat your face dry instead.
There is a pregnancy group on Facebook that a friend introduced me to, and some of the members swear by witch hazel. This is something I am thinking about utilizing.
Don't let a few pimples get you down. Take it as an indication that your baby is doing well and you are doing a good job caring for him/her.
