facewash during pregnancy

What is a good face wash to use for all of these pregnancy breakouts? My skin looks so bad! I used proactive before pregnancy but I have heard that its not good to use while expecting

I love St. Ives apricot scrub luckily my skin actually cleared during my pregnancy. Oh hormones.

The only one safe I know for sure is cetaphil. It's the salicylic acid that is bad for baby.

If its really bad you can ask your OB for erythromycin topical ointment. That's what they gave me a couple years ago when i was pregnant. It will really dry your face out though so get a really good face moisturizer

Im still using proactive. I wonder why its bad?  I also make my own homemade sugar scrub and use it once a week. You should google recipes. And since they are from foods you can use them on your lips too. Mine are usually really chapped but it has been working wonders.
