Dry/sensitive skin

I naturally have sensitive skin, but since I got towards the end of the 1st trimester, I've found that my forehead gets incredibly dry and flaky.  Is this (dry skin) a symptom of pregnancy?  What's the best product to use to moisturize super dry skin?  Are there products (lotions and moisturizers) I should avoid while pregnant?  First time mom at 11w+4, so I apologize if I seem naive.  :-)

I've had the same thing on my face and arms. My skins looks terrible. I got some really expensive stuff recommended for pregnant ladies which was horrible! I would just buy a big old tub of coco butter!  That's what I've been using.. and I've started creaming my belly and legs too in hope it will prevent stretch marks too :)
