True. During pregnancy, there is an increase of up to 50 percent in circulating blood volume. This increased blood flow manifests itself in many places, especially in the face where blood vessels become more dilated to accommodate the extra volume. If your skin reverts to its pre-pregnancy pimply state once you stop breastfeeding, start using a retinoid or OTC retinol, suggest Fusco. "This will speed up cell turnover and create an instant glow." For those with heavy acne, talk to your doc about a prescription product that combines a retinoid and acne-fighting antibiotic like clindamycin or benzoyl peroxide.
