update on DD's new regimen

well, it is day 4 since she started her new regimen. I have noticed improvement in her skin tone and she doesn't look as red in the face and her skin def looks more hydrated. Unfortunately though she is getting more of those flesh colored bumps (comedones) she is getting them in places she has never broken out before and they are getting pretty thick on her jawline and cheeks and chin area. She looked pretty good after the extractions but they are heavy again. I can't help but wonder if it is the moisture lotion with 30 spf. For some reason my DD gets clogged pores when she uses products with sunscreen. It's hard cause she needs some kind of ss cause of the glycolic acid and her job as a raft guide but ss just does not agree with her skin. Any suggestions?

The products might be bringing some of the closed comedones to the surface (which might make them easier to extract during her next appt). I doubt it is the sunscreen, as it takes several weeks for closed comdeones to form, so it may be a product she was using a month or two ago that you are just seeing the clogged pores from now. But, if you are still worried about that, call them on tuesday and ask. It'll probably be 6 wks before you really can tell what the new treatments are really doing, as the stuff you are seeing in her skin now began forming weeks ago and is now just becoming visible.
