When you compare skin purging versus breakouts, there are subtle yet vital differences that will tell you what’s behind those new zits. Purge means to remove something unwanted, and in a skin purge, the skin is cleaning itself out. While breakout (or acne) happens when a hair follicle or pore gets clogged with dead skin cells, sebum/oil, and possibly bacteria.
