How to Handle Pregnancy Acne

June 6, 2018

Odds are if you ended up here, you're either pregnant or just curious. That doesn't limit it much, I realize, but still... You're here. 

 

Pregnancy acne is primarily hormonal. There's a saying that "(baby) girls steal your beauty," that's half true. Most babies will effect your skin in some way or another simply because of how they change your hormones while you're carrying your little one. This is good and bad news. 

 

The good side of it is that this acne is strictly hormonal, meaning that when you're no longer pregnant, your hormones will normalize and you will return to clear skin. Theoretically. This means that you only need to deal with the acne as long as your hormones are out of whack. 

 

The bad side of this is that there's really no "cure" for this type of acne while it's happening. Granted, there are some remedies and things you can do to minimize the long-term impact on your skin, but the odds of you achieving PERFECTLY clear skin if you're experiencing pregnancy acne are slim. 

 

Some things that you CAN do, though... 

Eat antioxidant-rich foods. These are things like salmon, blueberries, and deep green veggies. Eating these will help fight off free radicals that have the potential to flare up your acne. 

You can typically use natural, topical products, but ALWAYS make sure to check with your physician first. Our line of Dr. Hauschka skincare products are made from all natural ingredients and are extremely safe. Again, still check with a practitioner before use, but all natural products are typically safe. 

 

Last, but not least, reduce your stress by meditating and/or lightly exercising and hang in there.
