I started doing this because I was experiencing a pretty bad breakout and said F it. So I started this when I was breaking out...first day doing it I woke up with a cystic pimple. Pretty sure I was gonna wake up with it no matter what so I don't blame it on not using any treatment. The cystic pimple went away really fast, but I started getting whiteheads in random places. My face wasn't too oily, but my skin was dry and was flaking in some places. Overall, not too much of a drastic change. If anything, I looked better.
