A few days ago, I decided to jump off the bandwagon and abandon the no-washing regimen. To break off the regimen, I exfoliated my skin with a vinegar soaked cotton pad two nights ago. I diluted the vinegar 1:4. The reason I changed my mind about the no-washing regimen wasn't because I lost faith in it, but because a person who had done the regimen for a...

Yesterday, I wanted to find out what make the no-washing regime work. It greatly contradicts Western beliefs of skin care and makes us feel icky.

So today is the 4th day of not washing my face. I'd have to admit, however, that I cheated a little when I splashed my face twice with cold water on the 2nd night. Fortunately, the water didn't seem to have an effect on my skin's progress, but I decided to leave water out of the mix from then on. That includes water in the shower. The past few...

Yeah, it'll feel weird, I know, what with my oily face and all. However, I've...

What was once my best friend is now my enemy. In the beginning, benzoyl peroxide helped me prevent acne and get rid of the current acne that I had. Eventually, it caused my skin to become dry and oily at the same time. It happened so gradually that I didn't realize that benzoyl peroxide was ruining my skin.

I started using benzoyl peroxide religiously...

Sooo...today is the day that I decide to create a blog of my acne experience. I'm doing this to tell other people what will or won't help me over the next months (6-12 months), and to help me keep track of my progress. Another reason was because I couldn't find answers to many questions through a plethora of google searches (such as when your...
