Last week I got this new symptom my face became very dry (At 10 weeks). But so dry it was peeling off. Is this normal?? I have readed that pregnancy can cause acne but dry skin? I thought maybe I'm dehidrated and begin drinking a lot of water since last week but it doesn't seem to help much. Skin is still very dry on my chin and nose. I will appreciate feedback.
It's normal, the hormonal changes & increased blood flow during pregnancy cause all sorts of changes in your skin. I have awful patches of dry skin on my cheekbones.. no matter how much moisturiser I use it doesn't go away & it itches like mad. The rest of my face still gets greasy which is annoying.
I am 12 weeks along and I feel your pain. My skin has went crazy with the hormone change. Its starting to flake in spots and become very irritated. The only thing I have found that helps is plain old vasoline. I use it as often as I can and it has really helped keep it moisturized. Good luck hun..
I used to use the plain old vaseline. I found something that is better and is natural. Grape Seed Oil. If you apply it with a small damp towel several times, it helps. The slight moisture makes it absorbed more readily.
Thanks ladies that really calms me down that I'm not the only one. Oh well I guess it's time to go shopping for a good moisturizer. I do take dry skin over acne any day. I got concerned because before that I was drinking too much milk and thought that maybe had to do with it..
My skin on my face is extremely dry as well. especially around the nose area. I use vitamin e moisturizer but as soon as it dries my skin is back to being flaky again! its so frustrating. Now its gone from being dry to being oily and i'm breaking out quite a bit more then i ever would (which isn't alot but weird for me) So frustrating! I did find thoug hthat drinking TONS of water seems to help with both
I use olay sensitive face wash doesn't break me out much. Use olay sensitive lotion it helps me. Good luck ..I am pregnant also pee a lil when sneezing. I was in Walmart first day that happened lol and prenatal vitamins help. I drink skim milk don't break out from it. Eat antioxident like strawberries are good for u. Lil dark chocolate for skin and not much cheese. No milk shakes and sugar will break u out drink mostly water. Good luck if any questions text me 740-260-5969
