Skin not improving
Skin not improving yet?

When treating acne, dedication and patience are key. While some members see results right away, it takes some time and patience for most of us to start seeing results.

We can't judge how a person is responding to an acne treatment until at least 4-6 weeks have passed of consistent daily use (although most see improvement by weeks 3 or 4). This means using it twice daily, for at least 4-6 weeks. The treatment needs time to work and get all the acne out deep in your skin. It is an ongoing process with gradual improvement (and some setbacks) until the tendency to break out has passed. Note that this improvement period can vary greatly by person.

Worsening breakouts (aka purging)

If you’ve just started a new formula and you feel like you’re seeing more breakouts, don't worry—this is normal, and we're here to help.

SMACNE works partly by unclogging pores, but this can mean an adjustment period for the skin, when you can see “initial breakouts” or “purging.” The pores are getting cleared out, and the skin cells are sloughing off like they should, but this can lead to temporary breakouts. This may happen in about 20-25% of people. You might see anything from small, superficial bumps to deep, inflamed pimples. It usually happens 1-2 weeks after starting, and it can last up to 3-4 weeks, but not to worry: once your skin adjusts, you should start seeing improvement! As this can take time, patience is key.
