Safe Acne Treatments While Pregnant

Question: Hello! I recently got off birth control in the summer and recently had to stop using a lot of my topical medications because of the active ingredients not being safe for pregnancy. Since then I have had terrible painful cystic acne on my chin and around my mouth which I know is likely to be hormonal. I tend to know have oily skin which I’ve noticed since going off birth control but also sensitive. Are there any facials products you recommend or supplements to help from inside out that are safe to use while trying to get pregnant and during pregnancy?

Hi Maura,

Thank you for contacting us, I would recommend either of the following products; Eminence Stone Crop Gel Wash, Citrus & Kale Potent C + E Serum, Clear Skin Probiotic Moisturizer, Mangosteen Gel Moisturizer and the Clear Skin Probiotic Serum as a spot treatment. We do carry HUM Nutrition Supplements and I would recommend consulting with your physician prior to taking any supplements, however, the HUM Nutrition OMG! Omega The Great or the Skin Squad Pre + Probiotic could be great options to address the concerns you’ve mentioned.

Best Wishes,
