What is a Skin Purge?
Your skin can purge when you use skincare products that cause pimples to speed up their lifecycle. This means the stuff that is clogging the pores underneath the surface suddenly rushes to the surface causing a breakout.
This can be confused with an allergy or breakout to a new skin care product. How can you tell if you are dealing with your skin purging or if you are really having a reaction to new skincare products?
- Skin Purging breakouts usually happen in the same areas you would normal get a breakout.
- Breakouts happening in new areas could mean a reaction to the new product.
- Timeframe. If a breakout lasts longer than your usual breakouts then this can be a sign of a bigger skin issue.
If you are dealing with a breakout from your skin purging then you just have to wait it out. On the other hand, if this breakout is a reaction from new products your best bet is to discontinue product use.
I encourage you to read another article on our blog, that tells you how long you should use a product to produce results in the skin.
