The Use Of Skin Care?
Greetings, sorry I am 23 years old using exfoliating skin care, now I am purging, so can I still use aha exfoliation during purging? I have routinely used it 3 times a week and now it’s entered week 3
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Skin purging is a condition that is quite common in the use of skin care products that contain certain ingredients, including AHA. If the pimples that appear at this time are not too heavy, you can continue using your skin care products as usual. If there are quite a lot of pimples, you can reduce the frequency of using your AHA to 2 times a week. When your skin condition has improved, you can increase the frequency of using your AHA 3 times a week again.
During your purging, make sure you don't squeeze your pimples and do skin care as usual. Use a gentle facial soap, don't treat the skin more harshly, don't forget to use a skin moisturizer so that your skin isn't too dry, and don't forget to use sun protection when you go out in the morning and afternoon. You should also avoid direct sun exposure on the skin by using a hat or umbrella on a hot day.
If your skin condition does not improve within 1-2 weeks, you should re-analyze whether the acne that appears is caused by skin purging or break out. Consult with a dermatologist if your acne condition gets worse.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
