Extremely Bad Breakout After Exfoliation

Recommended Posts

I don't think my face can handle any exfoliation. I'm dealing with some bad acne right now since I exfoliated with a washcloth last week. I know its exfoliation because I've done this several times in the past. I don't know why I keep trying.

Anyone else have this issue?

Yes. STOP exfoliating especially harshly or with a dirty rag that after you use you leave somewhere to collect bacteria. I recommend using a new one each time. Instead of a rag try a gentle cleanser. Use your hands maybe? Good Luck. And give your skin time to heal...Don't mess with it anymore. :)
