What's considered a breakout?

Recommended Posts

I've been on this regimen for about 3 months and my skin has improved but tons of red marks. Anyway, I still get 1 or 2 pimples in maybe 2 weeks. They aren't nearly as large as they used to be but still annoying because everytime I finally feel like it's getting better...another one pops up. Is 1 pimple in 2 weeks considered a breakout?

Everyone has their own definition of a break out.....plain and simple.

Depending how bad your acne is, you determine a break out based on how much it affects you...

If your breakouts are getting milder and more spaced apart, that's a very good sign. Stick with the regimen and the breakouts will minimize even further. Also, don't stress over red marks, there's nothing you can do about them on the regimen besides using an AHA moisturizer and waiting for them to heal naturally.
