More acne while using Mandelic acid & Lactic peels!??!!

Recommended Posts


Ok, I'm freaked out. I was doing very well with my acne by using BP and and glycolic cream, but my skin texture, tone, & overall complexion didn't look very good due to past acne, brown marks (I'm asian).

I started with the mandelic acid for a few days & did a lactic peel for 1 minute. No irritation, no extra drying, no acne...everything seemed fine. I did another lactic peel for about 5 minutes one week later and that went good. But I've been gettin a LOT of little whiteheads all around my cheeks. I look really bad right now. Is this normal? Should I stick it out with the lactic peels and mandelic? I've used both for 2 weeks now & stopped using BP and glycolic cream during that time. But today I panicked and used my BP to get rid of all this crap!

I've done Beta peels, Retin A Micro, & BP (with a couple of days off obviously) without any acne problems and Beta peels are much stronger.
