Ok so in my last post I sounded dreadful and had no hope. Well today I've noticed that my facial skin has less closed comedones, bit they are still there and I mean all over the place so nothing to significant. I also have a new pimple in my problem area(lower left jaw) but I'm waiting it out and I still refuse to use any chemicals on the skin. I've washed my face quickly and gently with a few splashes of cold water about 3 times(once a day) which is what the regemin calls for. There is somewhat improvement from yesterday. I would say my skin is at the normal baseline level of greasiness and bumps, though its not that bad, only if you look at me in the wrong light or at a bad angle ick*shivers* but yes I'm enjoying not having to slather on degrading chemicals every morning/night. It seemed like "oh the more I use, the more healing will be done!" Hahaha WRONG. Benzoyl peroxide and other skin stripping chemicals should be used very sparingly and NOT every single day as the directions say on the bottle. Maybe once a week at absolute most. Overall, no real improvementwith the water only method but at least it's not really getting any worse.
