Hi,
How are you? During pregnancy,  the extra hormones in the body can cause the oil glands to secrete more oil. This can lead to oily face and may even  cause breakouts. Continue to cleanse your face every night and every morning. You can use an astringent (pregnancy safe) to remove any remaining oil and follow this with an oil free moisturizer. If it persists, it is best that you discuss this with your doctor on your next prenatal consult.Take care and do keep us posted.
