Regimen causes breakouts in week 2

Recommended Posts

In the "What to expect" section the web site it says the following for moderate acne:

"Clearing, followed by a breakout. Skin is still red, irritated and itchy. Person is considering other options."

This is my second week on the regimen, and I have noticed a breakout after my face had cleared a bit. What causes this? Is it a reaction to BP, or a purging? I was also started to wonder if it was caused by certain foods I had consumed over a few days.

We think it's probably acne that was already forming under the skin before you began the Regimen. It takes a few weeks for it to emerge.
