Why Does Pregnancy Trigger Acne?
Posted By: Lindsay Schroeder Posted In: Acne Remedies Date Posted: December 27th, 2011 Comments: 2

There are many joys and excitements when a woman finds out she is pregnant and expecting a beautiful bundle of joy! But with that joy can also come hormones out of control and the dreaded…acne. Women who had no acne during their adolescence can experience acne during pregnancy. Read on to find the answer to why does pregnancy trigger acne?

There are two main reasons for acne during pregnancy. The first is the increase in hormone flow. During the first 8 weeks of pregnancy, progesterone is produced which prepares a smooth bed for implanting the fertilized egg. The hormone flow increases steadily as time passes. It is this hormone secretion which leads to trigger acne during pregnancy.

The second reason for acne during pregnancy is the changes in hydration and more water is retained in the body. This retention of fluid contains toxins and causes swelling in the body along with acne breakouts.

It’s possible to get rid of acne by simply following a healthy diet and by following a proper skincare routine twice daily. Acne can be treated with some natural remedies too. Check out our homemade facials section to test out a few of our masks and see which benefit your skin the most.

Pregnant women are strongly recommended to consult a doctor before using any medication to get rid of acne. Natural remedies are best and remember that your skin will go back to normal after a few months…and congratulations on being pregnant!
