    Same here. My skin which had always been on the dry side normally has gotten worse. No matter how much lotion or cream I use I still feel like I am shedding and my face is the worse. Just white dry patches all over the place.

    I get so embarrassed everytime I have to go to the doctor because I've got spots on my chest and back too!! It's disgusting. Is there anything that is safe to use during pregnancy to help clear this stuff up?

    ugh I feel you...
    My face is soooooooooo dry, blotchy, bumpy, and red...it looks swollen (specially on my chin and my cheeks but more on chin)...it makes me look older because it looks as I have fine lines (which I don't)...

    I scrub my face at night before bedtime with sugar and baby wash and sometimes St Ives apricot scrub...and I then apply St Ives moisturizer because it's so rich...sometimes I'd apply aveno in the morning after I wash my face with baby wash....and if I am going out I'd apply Aveno with SPF...
    and every 2 days I'd apply 100% pure cocoa butter all over my face....it actually works well...

    but sometimes I'm so tired that I'd skip this process lol and my face looks like I have slight rosacea...just horrible...
    feels a bit sand papery bleh.

    When I'm not pregnant I use less natural stuff lol
    and I'm sooo upset at this because I have really good skin :(
