Oil Cleansing/clogged Pores - How Long Till Recovery?

11 October 2013 - 11:51 PM

Hi everyone,

 

Recently (2 weeks ago) I cleansed my skin with castor oil, twice, two days apart. I broke out within a few days into masses of comedones all over my face - pretty much everywhere (no cysts). Some of them are big enough to squeeze out. But there are thousands of tiny ones, only visible when I stretch my skin under the right light, that give my skin a bumpy texture. I don't know if the castor oil is responsible, but it seems like a likely candidate.

 

I'm on tretinoin right now, and have been for the last 1.5 months. I am wondering how long it will take to get over this breakout. Does anyone have experience with a similar kind of thing? Is the castor oil really responsible? Could it be something else - I was scrubbing my skin quite roughly to get dead skin off (from tretinoin), perhaps this triggered this massive breakout?

 

Please share your experiences :)


Is It Possible To Get Acne Cosmetica From The Regimen?

14 April 2013 - 04:58 PM

Hi everyone,

 

I was just wondering if anyone developed cosmetic acne using Dan's BP and cleanser, or if anyone has successfully treated cosmetic acne using BP and cleanser. Or if anyone has heard of anecdotes involving any of the above

 

Thanks for your input!
