Did you think that acne was a part of your adolescent horror story and won’t be back?
Pregnancy writes its own rules. The hormonal changes may result in your sebaceous glands being overactive resulting in an acne flare-up. Cleanse your face twice daily with a gentle face wash and moisturize your face with an oil-free moisturizer and you’ll notice the difference soon enough.
2. Eating Right
Pregnancy and food cravings are conjoint twins. Indulge in as many Ben and Jerry’s , chocolate eclairs or potato wedges as you want. However, remember to balance them out with healthy eating. Eating healthy is key to feeling good during your pregnancy. What you eat, your little one consumes as well. The healthier you eat, the healthy your baby would be.

Finally, keeping yourself hydrated during this time to flush out toxins .
