Sa Wash (From: Can Unclogging Pores Cause Acne?)

392 views

2 things.

one SA did its work,its unclogging the pores.(if thats what they were)

two, SA if used in mild concentration(a good mild wash with balanced pH) doesn't cause pimples.(except for irritation OR/& intolerance) but theoretically its suppose to bring up the "dormant" or already formed acne/zits/cysts on the surface.thus causing , what they call, 'initial breakout' or 'purging'.

what SA wash are u using btw?what %?

are u doing anything new other than this?any change at all?

Hi annabill,

The short answer to your question is no. Unclogging pores cannot cause acne. Quite the contrary; unclogging pores prevents new pimples from forming. The initial breakout caused by retinoids and possibly SA is caused by removing layers of dead skin where pimples had already formed underneath. That is my understanding.
