Pregnancy and skin changes

When I was pregnant last year my face was really dry and I went to the mall and got a bunch of different samples of moisturizers tried about 10 different ones and every one made my face kind of sting after applying it.  Once I had the m/c I could use any moisturizer and none bothered my face.  

I have been using the same moisturizer for the last 8 months with out any problems. Both times today that I have applied it my face started to sting just like last time I was pregnant.  

I've been starving the last few days and a little bit nauseous but not to bad.  My breast don't hurt but I'm getting this little tingling feeling in them. I have never had breast pain with my cycle though.  I'm not due to start my period till friday.  I bought two tests at the dollar store saturday and I took a test sunday and it was negative.  I think it was too early though.  

Have any of you had these changes with your skin and moisturizer I know pregnancy can cause dry skin but not usually this early.  

Thanks for any input.

Don't worry, I am 14 weeks pregnent, I started having dry skin since week 5 and I tried many moisturizers, what the doctor has asked me to do is drink as much water as I can, I have bad nausea and vomitting and water makes me want to vomit, the water balance in your body is not stable so don't worry

also I'm really dizzy the last three days but not sure if that is due to me being congested.
