Blemishes, facial redness, acne, due to hormonal changes and imbalances, can flare up in pregnancy, the post pregnancy period, or during breast-feeding. Pregnant women can have an increase in breakouts, from hormones boosting sebum production from sebaceous gland, blocking pores, creating inflammation and breakouts. Post Pregnancy, there is a decrease in estrogen and an increase in testosterone and DHEA can make blemishes appear. Having a newborn can be very stressful, add in the constant and pervasive stress we encounter each day, the lack of a proper diet; and environmental factors, all can contribute to the appearance of blemishes.
