Post in Acne-Prone Skin


For the past several weeks I’ve been struggling with bumps all over my face. Thinking whiteheads. Looking for product suggestions that could help that can be bought in Canada. I have just started using two new “Ordinary” products that might be causing my breakout but could also be “purging” but I am not sure at all!!

This is a list of what I use!

Clinique “take off the day”
-first aid beauty “pure skin face cleaner” 
- Sephora collection “ultra glow serum”
- the ordinary “niacinamide 10% + zinc 1%”
-the ordinary “caffeine solution 5%
- first aid beauty “ultra repair cream”

Re: Breakouts

@cassiecolllins Neither of those TO products should cause purging so if the breakout started after introducing them then I'd discontinue use. Their niacinamide is notorious for causing breakouts. 

Re: Breakouts

Hi! I also had bumps on my face, but it changed after I started cleansing everyday.

You should try Biossance omega repair cream and changing the balm to an oil. I tried the clinique "take the day off" but it made my skin worse, I didn't like it. 

I tried tons of products and Biossance Squalane oil and Omega Repair Cream really worked to clear my skin. I also use they Vitamin C. Love it!

You can try products for 1 week if you don't see any changes, then test others and return those.
