So I started using a sea salt soap for about 1 and 1/2 weeks and first my skin seemed to get way better. But now for about 4 days my skin got really bad. It’s red, irritated and I have a bunch of new pimples. I wondered if this is just skin purging or a breakout. What do you think? Have you made similar experiences with sea salt ?

purging usually only happens when you enact change on a deep systemic level with harsh drugs like accutane or radical changes in diet and lifesytle


in your case i would say you probably saw some improvement from the initial clearing of oil then your skin adjusted

salt dries you out. the soap is most likely drying out your skin and thats whats making it red and angry. 


will it get better after this? i cant say. i dont know your history or specific biology but in general i would say probably not.


the answer to acne is lifestyle changes and while some products can help they are not sustainable nor really desirable in the long term
