Initial breakout question

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I am new here. At age 38 have been dealing with adult acne since my son was born 14 years ago. I am currently trying Paula's Choice products...am 3 weeks in to this regime and need some advice. In the past when I start to have initial breakouts, I freak out and stop using whatever system I am using. My acne affects my self-esteem so much that I rarely socialize if I have breakouts. Going to work is hard. I don't let my husband spend too much time starting at me. To be fair, I've been told it is not THAT bad, but who can say that unless they are in my head. Anyhoo...3 weeks in, using Paula's skin balancing cleanser, toner and BHA 2% liquid. I appear to be having a horrid initial breakout, mostly around my chin, some around nose, (chin is problem area anyway)...should I keep with it and try to get past this purging stage or give up? I just wish I knew what would make sense. Thank you!
