    Hey Ladies,

    Just wondering if any of you have found your skin to be more dry than normal since getting pregnant?

    I have always had dryish skin but as long as I moisturise it is usually managable.... but at the moment I am really battling with dry skin and I am so itchy, especially my arms!!

    I drink enough water and am using a really good moisturiser but nothing is making it subside.... not sure if it is the cold weather or pregnancy?!

    Sorry if this is a bit pointless, just wanted to know if I was the only one?

    xx

    No ur not alone hun.

    My skin has become so dry, mainly my face and back.
    I've also started having to buy different skin creams because the ones I've used for years are making me break out now :(

    I find that using bio oil or palmers coco butter formula helps on my back and boobs but so far, everything is making my face itch :( x

    I'm getting the same problems. Double base is fantastic for your face, stops itchy & really moisturises. Can be used all over too, think you have to get it on prescription though. Otherwise try aqueous cream instead of soap in shower/bath & use when you're dry too. It's the cold weather as well, when it starts to heat up a bit we should get more moisture in our skin! Hope it helps xx
