The PAO symbol looks like an open cosmetic cream jar with a number on it, followed by the letter ‘M’, which refers to ‘month’. “So for example, a PAO symbol showing ‘6M’ suggests that the product is safe to use for 6 months after it has been opened.

Your products have made me breakout, I don’t understand why?

Your skin may be purging.

Skin purging occurs when you start using a new product that contains exfoliants such as acids, and retinoids, all of which speed up the rate of skin cell turnover. (the rate at which you shed dead skin cells and replace them with new cells)

To a certain extent, the skin has to bring up all of the gunk in the deeper layers to the surface in order to ultimately get rid of it. This can look like acne or a breakout or clusters of small red bumps.

A traditional pimple typically takes anywhere from eight to 10 days to appear, mature, and shrink. A breakout from a purge is likely to show up and then disappear in about five days.

How do i know if my skin is purging or having a reaction?

If you’re experiencing redness, irritation, burning, stinging, or rashes, especially if they’re widespread, these are not signs of purging, but rather an allergic reaction, discontinue use asap.
