|OCM was perfect, until I broke out badly

My skin wasn't that bad when I started OCM, I just want to remove blackheads here and there especially on my nose. The first two weeks I did it was perfect, it made my skin clearer and glowing, I felt hardened sebums come out as I massaged oil on my face. My mixture - 20% castor, 40% grapeseed oil and 40% sunflower oil. |
After those two weeks, I woke up with a painful skin. I felt bumps on the sides of my face (lots) and acne erupted on my forehead and chin. I got a lot of clogged pores and whiteheads on my cheeks and chin especially on the area near my ears going downwards (like a path starting from the sides of my eyes). Lots and lots of whiteheads, my fingers got busy pinching them out. :(
I went back to using medicated soaps and hope my skin clears up. I just wish I could go back to the first two weeks when doing OCM was the best thing I did on my face. I've heard about the 'purging stage'. Am I finally experiencing this? If I go back to doing OCM again, would the same thing happen again and just make my skin worse? I don't know what to do.
Have anyone experienced this? I wonder if continuing this would fix my skin. I don't know anything about the purging stage.
