What is the difference between skin purging and reacting?
𝑺𝑷𝑶𝑻𝑺 after using a new product!!!
I know you definitely want to stop using it right away and never lay hands on it again…. but when it comes to the science of the skin, in most cases, it’s not that you’re breaking out, but rather you’re experiencing “SKIN PURGING”.
𝑾𝑯𝑨𝑻 𝑰𝑺 𝑺𝑲𝑰𝑵 𝑷𝑼𝑹𝑮𝑰𝑵𝑮?:
This is when you use a product that increases the skin’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.
𝑻𝑰𝑷 𝑻𝑶 𝑹𝑬𝑫𝑼𝑪𝑬 𝑷𝑼𝑹𝑮𝑰𝑵𝑮:
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.
DO NOT PICK THE SPOTS.
