St. Ives Apricot Scrub Broke Me Out!

31 October 2013 - 03:26 PM

I started using the Apricot for my blackheads on my nose only. I would only use a gentle cleanser for my face like Dan from the regimen recommends. He also recommends to stay away from scrubs. I ran out of my cleanser and used the scrub for my face gently. I tend to get carried away so I may have not been so gentle and I started using it once a day to twice a day sometimes for like 2 months probably. I had never really researched about it. Last week I started noticing some skin colored bumps around my jawline. Now I have them on my chine, jawline, cheeks, forehead and even my neck. I couldn't figure out why. Then I remembered I used the product all the way down my neck. I looked up the product and read that it's so bad for your skin. It's too harsh and tears it and makes acne worse. My acne had cleared up and I would only get the occasionally pimples. Now it's so noticeable on certain lighting and I want to know how I can heal from it or get rid of it. I don't want to have bad acne. Please help! Its skin toned bumps all over and its really depressing and embarrassing.
