Can Skincare Cause Acne? πŸ€“


Can skincare products cause acne?

When a new active ingredient that increases skin cell turn-over rate is introduced to your routine, it can trigger skin purging - a process that pushes unsightly blackheads, white heads and pustules that have developed below the skin's surface to the outermost layer of the skin.

Purging typically lasts between 4-6 weeks (the length of one skin cycle) and its end should coincide with the appearance of new, clearer looking skin.

If purging lasts for more than 6 weeks you should consult a dermatologist as you could be experiencing a negative reaction to the active. πŸ’ž
