Hi,
How are you? During pregnancy, hormone changes - such as higher levels of  androgens, contribute to breakouts.  They lead to increase in the  production of oily substance or sebum as the sebacious glands are affected. The sebum with skin cells that line the hair follicles blocks the pores leading to increase in bacteria causing inflammation and skin eruptions of acne. Pregnancy can trigger acne or make existing adult acne worse. Avoid taking any medication without consulting your doctor. Regular prenatal consult is highly recommended. Take care and regards.
