I know you definitely want to stop using it right away and never lay hands on it againโ€ฆ. but when it comes to the science of the skin, in most cases, itโ€™s not that youโ€™re breaking out, but rather youโ€™re experiencing โ€œSKIN PURGINGโ€.

This is when you use a product that increases the skinโ€™s renewal factor , causing any acne that lays dormant under the layers of the skin to come out sooner as the cells are turning over at a quicker rate.
You will usually experience whiteheads or pustule while your skin is purging.

This usually last between 6-8weeks, (depending on the skin type) however you should see a difference within the first circle (28days).

If the new product you are using does not have active ingredients that would encourage cell turnover, then it is not purging and likely due to another factor that is creating clogged pores.

Purging should also not be confused with an allergic reaction. An allergic reaction will look red, bumpy, scaly and they are classically itchy.

You can build up the skin to the ingredients by easing into the method and applying it twice a week for the first week then gradually increase usage.
