1st-time users: Some first-time users may experience an initial acne break-out due to the deeper exfoliation of the pores’ inner walls. If your pores have not been regularly cleaned at this level, existing pore cloggers are brought to the surface. As therapy continues, this deeper-cleaned state is maintained and acne is markedly reduced. With correct use — following instructions carefully, the slow increase in application frequency, the use of hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and pH-appropriate support products in the Id system — as well as prevention with non-comedogenic products such asEssence Skin-Saving Hair, Body + Bath Care,Armada Sun + Light Screens, Skintelligent Beauty Makeup, this initial reaction soon disappears. If it does occur, stop use for 1 week and restart therapy at the beginning, with 2x-a-week applications. CYSTIC ACNEcan be internally caused. If you have cystic acne, consult your dermatologist as you may need additional medication and/or other management.
