Why is my acne so different in pregnancy?

Some women notice their acne worsens during pregnancy, and a few reasons can cause this.

For some lucky women, pregnancy actually causes an improvement in acne. For others, no such luck! If you were on acne medications and stopped them for pregnancy because they were not safe or you just wanted to, this could be why you’ve noticed some flares. Also, your changing hormone levels can be why you’ve noticed so many outbreaks recently. If it is really bothering you, talk with your doctor or midwife. They can discuss safe treatments in pregnancy, or even refer you to a dermatologist who might be able to help.
