Retinol Purge

Are you experiencing a breakout after a few weeks of using a new retinol product? Skin purging is normal when you start using new products that contain Vitamin A, as it can initially make acne below the skin's surface pop up faster. However, there are some things you should and shouldn't do to help your skin heal faster and return to its usual state. Here are some tips: (1) Don't pick or pop your pimples. (2) Switch to sensitive skin products when adjusting to a new retinol product. (3) Don't incorporate other active ingredients when starting retinol. (4) Apply SPF daily to minimize the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation from purge-related breakouts.
