Skin changes

So I've noticed drier skin everywhere, been using lotion and oils. I didn't really expect it to be on my face so much. All of a sudden it's peeling, similar to after a sunburn fades. It's definitely not due to too much sun where I'm at, haha.

Is this just one more pregnancy symptom? I'm 15 weeks. Or just a sign I need even more water intake? I tended to have dry skin before pregnancy as well, I am very pale skinned normally.

I had especially itchy dry skin for awhile. Part of it was that it was wintertime, but part of it had to be a pregnancy symptom bc ive never had it anywhere near that bad before. I started putting on a little baby oil in the shower and it seemed to help.
