Skin Purging: As You Raise Your New Vibration
Skin tends to break out as your energy clears: this is why, and what you can do about it
Have you been dealing with acne? Clearing out your medicine cabinets, your makeup routine, and your diet, to make way for a new way of living? Been called to start pursing skincare as a reflection of an internal process?
In spiritual circles, it is common for people to go through energy purges as a method of preparing for their next level. Spring cleaning, space clearing, detoxing from makeup, detoxing with water, detoxing with medicine plants, these are all ways you and your body will work together clear your energy and heart space to make way for new.
Your skin is your outer coat that you wear to the world. The skin, as the largest organ in the body, will gladly participate in this cleansing process.
A skin purge can happen on it's on or be facilitated by you, but either way, it's a great, fast (albeit not pretty) way to release long-time toxins stored in your body, which will facilitate you moving up to your next level in health, body and spirit.
Taking care of your skin and the body you live in is just as important for spiritual work as connecting with your guides. Your body is the vessel and anything you can do to facilitate it being toxin free - can make you a clearer vessel for spirit. Even in just skincare - your spiritual work and body, are going to thank you when you cleanse.
Skin purging - a normal part of energy clearing
Whenever you go through an energy cleanse or shift up to a new vibration in eating, in living, in health, your skin may be triggered to purge its remaining toxins as a method of facilitating the healing process. This skin purge can cause acne breakouts as out with the old and in with the new takes place.
You can help facilitate the process
You can move along, assist, facilitate the purging process by drinking more water, eating more organic foods (taking in fewer toxins), or by working with natural products that facilitate cell turnover and repair - like a BHA or an AHA acid, or a retinol treatment.
Skin purging is like resurfacing and clearing the old off the tile floors. It is really a clearing out the past process. And sometimes, to get it really clear, down to the bottom of it clear, you gotta get in there scrape out the old grout and then get on top and wax the whole thing to take the old surface off and smooth on a new one - and that’s what these cleansers will help do.
Currently, my favorite skincare line for skin clearing products like BHA, AHA, and retinol is Paula’s Choice, but many great companies offer products that help facilitate whole body cleansing for mind, body and spirit. To learn more about how BHA and AHA work to clear skin, check out this article.
It’s about setting the place for new
Skin clearing is a practice is rooted in manifestation principles. To manifest something new, there first has to be space for that new thing to enter. Many of us start to manifest by naturally clearing the way, in all ways, to bring in the new.
And remember, when you clear anything - from cords to old clothes - expect a bit of temporary chaos.
You have to get the whole room covered in grout bits before it all eventually gets swept up and taken away. You have to tear up, dislocate, and loosen all the gunk that’s been hiding out to remove it, of course. As that happens, before it’s all fully cleared from the space, it creates a mess. Which can mean acne.
While healthy and for the good, in the end, remember that the skin purging process, like all energy clearing processes, is not always comfortable. In this case, it can involve acne and painful bumps sprouting up as things come up and out. But thankfully, it's only temporary. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
The process doesn’t last long. Only 6-8 weeks, or one complete cell turnover cycle, from whenever you start the initial journey. Together, your body and your organs will conspire together with your spirit to help you purge out old toxins so you can fully rise up, to your next level.

Note: If you are having trouble getting rid of acne scarring and blotchiness after your skin cleanses itself, applying Vitamin C directly to your face as a serum helps big time with this. Here's the serum I usee . . . it works!
