You might experience purging in your first week while the products condition your face. Skin purging ranges from person to person, but those who are already susceptible to breakouts are more prone to experiencing purging.
What is skin purging?
Skin purging occurs when you use a new product that increases the skin cell turnover rate.
Cell turnover is the continuous process of shedding dead skin cells and subsequently replacing them with younger cells.
The KEVLO Facial Starter Set actively speeds up the process of the skin cell turnover cycle will help reveal healthier skin cells. But if you have a lot of gunk underneath the skin, you are more likely to experience purging. This gunk includes flakes of dry skin, already present buildup, and excess oil.
Since the Starter Set is increasing the rate of skin cell turnover, all the gunk will inevitably rise to the surface of your pores quickly. New acne may make you question whether or not to stop using the Starter Set. Purging is a necessary process that your skin must go through to adjust to new skincare products.
Purging is temporary.
Skin purging takes form in mostly blackheads or tiny skin-colored bumps and looks incredibly similar to a breakout. But the good news is that this annoying side effect is temporary.
How long purging lasts depends on the individual, and purging usually lasts for a few days and on very some cases, up to a month.
What happens after purging?
The Facial Starter Set contains skin-penetrating ingredients to fix skin problems from within. Usually, you will only purge on the areas where your pimples keep coming back.
Once purging stops, your skin will be clearer than ever. Plus, the best part is your pimple will not keep coming back!
Purging is a good sign and is just one step to better skin. Keep at it, persevere, and continue using the Starter Set to improve your skin.
