This should be a time of joyfulness, but often times we hear of the negative side effects all of those pregnancy hormones have on the skin.
When an overproduction of hormones happens inside the body, the result is oftentimes acne breakouts. Many women, even those who have never had acne in the past, experience pregnancy acne breakouts.
This can be frustrating for many women, as most treatment options are considered unsafe for use during pregnancy. Even some over-the-counter medications should not be used during pregnancy.
In fact, acne is the number one problem most pregnant women complain about. Benzoyl peroxide is assigned class C, which means animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse affect on the fetus and there are no adequate, well-controlled studies in humans. But potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women, despite potential risks. Lactic acid is effective and safe during pregnancy as is tea tree oil and sulfur-based products.
Lactic acid, which is an alpha hydroxy acid, is a normal part of cellular metabolism. Lactic acid is very effective at getting rid of the bacteria that leads to acne and increasing cellular turnover, which salicylic acid and glycolic acid do.
Tea tree oil is a great pore cleanser and has similar efficacy to benzoyl peroxide. Green tea is another pregnancy-safe acne-clearing ingredient. Some topical medications are safe for using during pregnancy and many in-office procedures may be performed during pregnancy and while trying to conceive.
The acne specialists at the Clear Clinic can determine the best acne treatment regimen for your type of acne flare during pregnancy. We often use a combination of pregnancy category B topical medications and in-office treatments such as Light Therapy and the Isolaz.
We can work directly with your OB to determine the best plan of action for your skin type. Custom Clear Kit Questionnaire. We could not locate your form.
