My skin has been horrible this pg. The first trimester I has horrible break-outs. Now, my skin is always dry and flaky. Does anyone use a great facial moisturizer that also has spf in it?

Bio oil!!!!! it isn't just for stretchmarks but it moistureises the skin and is great at getting rid of wrinkles!  Not to mention it is only $15.  This stuff I would pay $100 dollars for and be happy about it.  Not only do I not have one stretchmark but ever since I started using it has taken years off me!  My mother uses it too and has loved every bit of it!

I love CeraVe cream.. it is next to the Cetaphil in drug stores and about 14-17 dollars. It doesn't have SPF in it but it is oil free and I use it on my face(at night) and entire body (day and night). Not sticky and you can feel it still on your skin the next day in the shower. It's not so thick that you can't rub it in either. Ohh, and its fragrance free.

I'm really on a tight budget so I just use Dove Deep Moisture. It's only like $6 at any drugstore and my skin is really dry normally so it really works for me. Good luck!

I use the Body Shop Vitamin E line and it's wonderful! Also, w/ my first pregnancy, something that really soothed my (oddly dry, but breaking out) skin was Avon's African Shea Butter Calming Mask... it smells like cookies and it feels SO wonderful on your face. I would soak in a bath with the mask on and feel so much better after!

hey! my skin has been realllllly dry which is odd for me because its always been really oily. Anyways, i've used a few different mosturizers from clinique and they work really well. I know there are a few that have spf. I usually use the oil-free ones and they really seem to moisturize without adding to break-outs. good luck!

I had some really bad complection problems too during my first trimester. I went to the dermatologist and she perscribed a $50 cream that "will probably help". I skipped it and bought a tub of cetaphil lotion instead - it is usually used for people with very sensitive skin. It works wonders! It cleared up my skin, it's a little thicker than normal facial moisterizers but i love it and can't imagine using anything else!

I use products by a company called Belli, they are one of the few that are teratology tested which means the products are not harmful to the baby. I use their acne face cleanser since I started breaking out when I became pregnant, their facial sunscreen lotion, and body wash and body lotion. The products are natural and smell wonderful. You should try it!

Mary Kay's moisturizer is great. They have it for all various skin types. You'd have to order it from a MK rep though.

I used Body Shop too... notthe facial one but the body butter on my belly. Maybe you can find something there that you like and that works for you. I'mpretty sure a lot of their stuff contains sunscreens.
You might also want to make sure you are feeding your skin from the inside by drinking more water. :)

I really like the Body Shop. I use a seaweed based moisturizer that actually works and doesn't clog my pores...which seems to be a huge deal for me. They do have different types of moisturizers for different types of skin, in case the seaweed isn't for your skintype. and yes...it has spf.

I use one by Mary Kay with SPF 20 in it. It's a little thicker than the usual face lotion because of the sunscreen in it but it works great. Spas have great treatments for skin, too and it's a fun treat if you want to get some specific advice there!
