Does Exfoliation Cause Breakouts?

Recommended Posts

My friend who is a facial skin cleaner (forgot the profession word for it) said that I shouldn't exfoliate when I have active pimples on my face, because it will spread the infection. If the exfoliatior has tiny grains in it. Im asking this because everytime I exfoliate, my face feels and looks great. Im using Clean And Clear Blackhead Exfoliation.

I suppose it COULD cause them, but if you have done it a number of times before and it didn't, than I think you are safe as long as you only do it occasionally and lightly.

People here will tell you that it does cause breakouts, but people here will tell you that EVERYTHING will break you out...it just depends who you are listening to.
