Purging Or Breaking Out?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I've been using lemon juice on my face for 2 weeks now, and at first my skin looked really nice, the tone was more even. I was really happy with it.

Since 2 days I've been getting many very small whiteheads and bumps. They aren't like the acne I normally get, the small whiteheads don't hurt at all and are just...very tiny.

Before I started using the lemon juice, I noticed I had many pores with some white stuff in it if I would look real closely in the mirror and would stretch my skin a bit (clogged pores?)

What do you think? Does the lemon juice make me breakout or are these small whiteheads the result of purging? Is it drawing out the stuff that was blocking the pores? Will my skin get better after this purging/initial breakout?

Did anyone else experience something like this when using lemon juice or some other product/exfoliant?

thanks in advance!
