skin changes! face wash?

Ok so up until about a week ago my face had been so clear and pretty.. I'm now 22 weeks and it seems like it's gotten more oily and starting to break out.. Even before I was pregnant I always just used ivory soap bc it is gentle and not full of chemicals like others... I still use that and like every other day I scrub with st apricots... I have heard that when youre preggo you shouldn't use face washes that have harsh chemicals like benzoyl..   What do you use? Its so frustrating! Oh and I want to use this mud mask but Idk if It is safe??

I think biore products have salicylic Acid in them too. St apricots does too I think..  They say that isn't safe :(

I started using Yes To Pomegranates. It's 99% natural :)

I never knew certain face washes were bad I use clean n clear with benzyl peroxide cause I'm allergic to sasylic acid but my face wash hasn't been working lately my face chest and shoulders are breaking out like crazy.

My dr actually told me benzoyl peroxide was fine as long as i dont use too much. Im prescribed 5% benzoyl peroxide cream for my face and now its clear. & everything's good with my pregnancy

But if your that concerned cetaphil is great, it wont dry up your skin , its not harsh but it worked for my breakouts well

I started using seaberry oil by Fresh. I got it at sephora  (ulta does not carry it, I checked)  I thought because my face was breaking out and getting oily it would only make things worse, but turns out it works better than anything I've ever used. And it doesn't have a ton of chemicals and crap in it, I love it. If you go in and ask for a sample they'll give you enough for like a week to test it out
