So it's been maybe a little less than a month since I completely stopped using my Clarisonic because I'm pretty sure it was doing more harm than good other keeping my skin smooth in the places where is wasn't breaking out.
Soon after that, I stopped using acne medicated products altogether (currently using Cetaphil cleanser and witch hazel morning & night, Neutrogena Oil Free SPF 15 Moisturizer in the morning & CeraVe lotion at night).
My breakouts have significantly reduced, but now I'm getting a ridiculous amount of whiteheads, which I've never been prone to before, and my skin texture is pretty uneven and kind of "bumpy." Like these really, really tiny subsurface bumps. My theory is I may have shocked my skin from quitting the Clarisonic & acne medicated skincare & my face is freaking out, but any other input is appreciated.
