Don’t 

  • Don’t over cleanse or exfoliate as this may cause dry, irritated skin 
  • Pick or squeeze spots as this will cause scarring and can introduce bacteria 
  • Use retinoids – vitamin A is a no in pregnancy  
  • Panic about your skin and start buying products that you do not need 

The takeaway from this is to try to keep things as natural as possible, and to know it’s not uncommon for your skin to change during pregnancy due to hormones.
