This condition occurs in about 90-95% of breakout victims. See our REFERENCE TOPICS for a complete discussions of breakouts.
Our approach to a satisfactory visible resolution will be to discontinue all current topical products and begin anew.
Inflammatory breakouts are often caused and aggravated by topical products. These include makeup, acid peels, acid cleansers, scrubs and leave-on topicals from sunscreens to moisturizers.
Note on Benzoyl Peroxide
If you have used benzoyl peroxide for longer than 30 days, it will be necessary to wean your skin from this very destructive chemical. Over the course of another 30 day period, reduce the frequency of application until you reach zero. It is likely you will experience random lesions that do not secrete for up to a year AFTER discontinuing the application of benzoyl peroxide.
Discontinuing your current products will make your skin more unstable in the short term. But, if you try simply adding our products to your current products, it won’t work. It is highly likely your skin is addicted to your current products. It is an industry goal. Withdrawal from addiction is not fun. Your skin is weak and vulnerable.
If skincare product addiction is a new concept to you, then you will be understandably confused. We have produced skincare products for over twenty years for the professional market of dermatologists and estheticians. Skincare product addiction has become epidemic and we are called to treat that.
We find we can obtain visible improvement to unstable, inflammatory, blemish prone skin with one product.
