Do not peel your pimples as these leave marks Beacause of hormones, acnes can occur To prevent pimples, eating fresh fruits, green vegetables, drinking plenty of water should be an essential part of your routine and intake of oily fried foods, an excess of sugar-salt should be avoided For more details you can consult me.

During pregnancy acne treatment is not advisable.
Acne in pregnancy are usually due to hormonal changes. Dont take any oral treatment. You can apply anti acne creams along with a good face wash for the treatment of acne.
