REPOST from my awesome smart esti friend @britt_deltoro_aesthetics .
SKIN TIP TUESDAY: Know the difference between skin purging and skin breakouts before breaking up with your products!
Purging is a process that happens when you incorporate skincare products with active ingredients like AHA’s, BHA’s, retinol, and other products that increase cell turnover. A really good friend of mine describes it as “getting the junk out of the basement”, and I forever use that term because that is EXACTLY what it’s doing. When we have clogged pores and “junk” that is needing to get out, purging is necessary, although makes us feel not so cute. Don’t fret though, because in the end it pays off!
HOWEVER, if you are constantly breaking out, and you’re not using any products with new ingredients to invite cell turnover, and you are having painful blemishes that like to try and hold on to you and possibly attempt to move in for longer than 6-8 weeks, you might not be purging, but dealing with an actual breakout or reaction to your product. .
