Pregnancy Acne

When you are pregnant your body goes through many changes and acne flare-ups are unfortunately a common problem - even for those who have never suffered from acne in the past. Pregnancy acne can occur due to a buildup of the progesterone hormone which can cause the sebaceous glands in your skin to produce more sebum (oil) than usual, leading to blocked pores, pimples and breakouts. You can also get acne postpartum as various hormones are fluctuating.

At Skin Diligent, we understand that during pregnancy and breastfeeding, the body is more sensitive to endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDC), so all our skincare products are certified to be free of oestrogenic endocrine disruptors and are hypoallergenic. Besides clinical tests, we have also run users test on pregnant and breastfeeding women. See results here.

We think that there is a better way to treat acne than using harsh chemicals and antibiotics. Skin Diligent's products won’t put your skin through the unnatural process of ‘skin purging’ or sensitise your skin or make it thinner. All our products are UV safe, work to reinforce your skin barrier and provide cellular protection. You don’t have to worry about applying our products only at night. That’s because our products don’t contain any ingredient that can harm the skin barrier or under the skin.
