Customer Question

I use a salicylic acid toner which is by Dr Perricone. (Pore Minimiser) It keeps most of the little bumps on my face. I tried products by Kiels which ended up with flare ups of mini bumps all over my face. I tried to use a BHA toner with Kiehls but it was quite drying. I'm wondering whether my bumps are due to hygiene and the environment (London underground most days)? I used to have this problem while living in the Big Smoke (Dublin, Ireland). I'm also wondering whether this is acne or an environmental problem? I don't get large clusters of pustular painful pimples. Usually its one or two in different areas at max and then allergic reaction bumps which disappear once the contaminant is ceased. I appreciate your advice. Thank you.

I've had bumps since adolescence. I developed open pores later in my years. (After 26 years of age)
