Initial breakout – You may experience a breakout after a peel as the skin is purging toxins. Not everyone will experiences a breakout after a peel; it depends on how much congestion you have under your pores. As you start to perform regular facial peels, it is less likely that you will experience breakouts. While this can be frustrating, it is not necessarily a bad sign. When first starting the regimen this is common. The cleansing process scrubs your clogged pores that are embedded with dirt and dead skin cells. As the top layers are removed, this congestion inside the skin may emerge in the form of blemishes. The entire process takes several weeks to purge the skin, but afterwards skin should be noticeably smoother and cleaner. Make sure and avoid irritating the skin, if you notice some redness or irritation, just wait a longer between applications, or shorten the duration. Typically within the first 3 weeks, the skin begins to show improved clarity with very few breakouts. Please try to be patient during this time. Deep cleansing and exfoliation is a “process” which takes some time to work.
