my skin is so dry it's flaking on my nose, my chin and spot btw my eyebrows

Anyone can suggest any moisturizer that i can use during pregnancy? I tried use toner to get rid of the flakes, but it doesn't help.

  • I would just get any facial moisturizer. It shouldn't effect your pregnancy at all. It is all topical.

  • Try Cetaphil mosturizer. Was recommended for baby when little.

  • When that happens to me, I just use plain old lotion. The skin is so dry on my nose sometimes that those moisturizers especially made for the face are too light. Cocoa Butter works well.

  • Make sure that you are drinking lots of water and eating healthy fats. Rub coconut oil on your dry skin

  • Toner will make this worse. Be sure you are drinkng plenty of water. Try Cocoa butter in small amount on your face. I use Aveeno with SPF. GL

  • I haven't had that issue since I started using Nutragena facial bar, and I work in a foundry pouring 2300 degree iron.

  • You must be using a soap that is drying out your skin - Clinique or Origins are good products I've used.
