Facial wash making skin worse - continue using or not? Watch
According to this site:
...this is perfectly normal, though it also happens to produce and sell acne products.
According to this site, which is a little more reliable and not selling anything:
...if you're getting cystic spots and pustules in places where you wouldn't usually, it's not a problem of purging, but that the product is negatively reacting with your skin. This matches up exactly with what I'm getting.
Because this isn't exactly my field of interest, I wanted to ask everyone else's advice to decide whether to stop using the product or not. It definitely doesn't help that I need to hand out CVs and attend interviews in the next week, and need to look my best.
Whilst it's true that using skin products can bring out more spots, if you're feeling like it's producing a lot more & in places you wouldn't usually get them, then it's possibly an irritation. Does your skin react in other ways? e.g. burning, itching, tingling? If you go into a department store & go up to a skincare booth - ask them for some advice about the product. Whilst it's true they'll push their own products to try and get you to buy, they should still provide some useful advice and you don't have to buy their products.
