Bad skin

I'm just looking for a bit of advice regarding the current state of my skin! 
For background, I'm 36 and you'd say I had dry combination skin. I'm 15+2 and pretty much the second I found out I was pregnant my skin has been horrendous. My chin is covered in painful cysts which just pop up one after another. Around my face and mainly chin and jawline/neck areas!
Prior to being pregnant my skin was actually pretty good! Some chin spots around the time of the month but manageable.
I am a bit of skincare buff and double cleanse, tone and moisturise morning and night. Using mainly Clinique and knowledge I know it seems like a minor problem (which I know it is), it's making me extremely self conscious and down.

Has anyone else experienced this and if so what products, if any, worked for
you?
Also if anyone wants to chime in to tell me that my skin will be perfect again the second I enter the second trimester then that would also be appreciated! 😂
