About this blog

Tired of the constant struggle between my face and topicals, so I've decided to cut them out completely.

Week 3

So it's the end of week 3 and my skin is still doing the same thing it was in the first two weeks. Dry skin and white heads/pimples that pop up out of nowhere overnight. The pimples heal fast though which is nice, but usually I don't have very many pimples to begin not doing so great.

What's weird is my forehead was my problem area before, but now it's pretty much clear and the areas I didn't have pimples are breaking out (cheeks and above mouth). Maybe this is because of the dry skin? My forehead doesn't get dry but around my mouth does. I almost gave in today and started using Dan's regimen. I've decided to stick it out for a few more weeks to see if this is just a purging phase I'm going through. I really want this to work, but things aren't looking amazing for me. Picture is attached (I picked today).

Overall...after I just looked at the pictures, it's pretty bad compared to usual. Not having too much confidence in the water only method. Need some motivation to keep me going.

Week 2

By the end of the first week my skin was starting to break out a little more. At the beginning of the second week my skin started "purging" and I was getting a lot of whiteheads and even some bigger pimples. I also got a few pimples in random places that I never break out (cheeks). I have a bad habit of picking, so some of the marks are still around. Overall...not a very good week for my skin. I'd wake up every day with 2 new pimples but noticed they go away very fast after I pop them. My skin is still dry and flaking some after I get out of the shower.

Week 1

I started doing this because I was experiencing a pretty bad breakout and said F it. So I started this when I was breaking out...first day doing it I woke up with a cystic pimple. Pretty sure I was gonna wake up with it no matter what so I don't blame it on not using any treatment. The cystic pimple went away really fast, but I started getting whiteheads in random places. My face wasn't too oily, but my skin was dry and was flaking in some places. Overall, not too much of a drastic change. If anything, I looked better.


First off, hello to anyone that is reading this! I'm 23 years old, male, and in great physical shape. I have a very healthy diet and am fortunate enough to eat mostly organic/natural foods. Even though I take great care of myself I still suffer from the occasional pimple. I'd describe my acne as fairly light. I used to get cystic acne here and there, but now I maybe get one a year. My skin is pretty oily and sensitive. I NEVER broke out or had more than 1 pimple a week until I turned 18...which totally sucks because at that age most people are getting rid of their acne. No one else in my family has acne either. This past year I've had my skin mostly under control with Dan's regimen. Now that it's cold/winter here in Pennsylvania I've started to break out again.

Why I'm Doing This

I'm tired of spending money and constantly looking in the mirror obsessing over a few small pimples. I know most people have it a lot worse than me, but we're all aiming for perfection. Blame it on the media or whatever, but your physical appearance matters...a lot. Since I never really had acne until I started using products I just realized maybe they're to blame. I'll try to update this weekly so myself or anyone can read my success and or failures along the way. Maybe in the future if someone else is in my predicament they can use this as a guide.

P.S. I will not be proofreading these entries, so if I have horrible spelling or with it lol.
