Pro tips: Get the most out of the auditing process
• Check ALL the products you are using, including things like toothpaste, hair products, makeup, and laundry detergent as they can be majorly affecting your acne in an indirect way.
• Once you’ve audited your stash, test what seemingly safe products that remain by actually using them, preferably one at a time, for 1-3 months. This way, you can isolate any new breakouts to the new product you're testing.
• Try donating your unwanted products to local shelters in your area, or to friends and family.
• You can try to salvage what you have, but doing so may slow down or halt your clearing process. For the fastest and most reliable results, use skinSALVATION products.
