Patience is Key

Bare in mind that switching to new skincare may cause acne, rashes, dryness and excessive oil production

  • Rest Skin for 7-14 days

    Resting your skin means that you have to stop using your current 'mercury' skincare. You should start using the basic skincare such as gentle cleanser, gentle moisturizer and use sunscreen.

  • Moisturize Regularly

    During the resting skin phase, you also have to make sure that your skin is moisturized regularly, to avoid dryness and flaking.

  • Start Small

    Lastly, you shall start using the new mercury free skincare thinly only at night. Especially if the new product contains any active ingredients. This process helps your skin to accept the new product gently without any side effects.

What to Expect?

It is called Purging

  • Purging is a process of dead skin cells and dirt trapped under the skin layer removal. It is also caused by an excessive amount of oil production.

  • This detox process causes acne to appear on the surface of the skin . The acne usually appears on the areas where one's acne regularly appears.

  • Worry not, even though the process of purging is going on, the skin still absorbs the benefit of the new skincare that is used. In conjunction, it could help with the process of skin barrier repairing, brightens and fade acne scars.

  • Don't pick your acne

  • Don't use any drying products: exfoliating acids

  • Don't stress

Time heals

Everyone's skin is unique. Therefore, the time frame can differ from person to person. Generally, purging should be over within four to six weeks of starting a new skin care regimen.
