The All Natural Regimen

162 posts in this topic

hey im on 3 weeks now, of no water. it really does work at least for me, there is a lot of people out there that are too skeptical, talking all this crap to wapak. just try it if it doesnt work then sucks for you, if you really want clear skin do a little research for yourself and stop depending on what other people tell you. this regimen works better than anything else ive ever tried, i have no pimples at all, i started with my face red all over, super oily skin, especially my nose, pimples all over my face, bacne, acne on my chest and on the upper arms. it was so much work everyday to "clean" my skin, i always felt like it wasnt getting better but i thought that i was doing the right thing and "it was going to get better" i was definately misinformed. but until i did my own research, thats when i found out about waterwater and adam08. for all those wanting to try this just do it, f what everyone thinks about your skin, this will heal your skin, its a hard regimen because you have to be really determined to do whatever it takes to heal your skin. your skin will flake and it will have dead skin, and it may be super oily, you might get a coupe new pimples at first, you may look disgusting and wanna quit but as soon as you do your going to regret not following through and continuing. make sure you do everything that wapak told you to do, its the same thing that i do and i learned it from waterwater adam08 and some of my own research. heal your acid mantle, google that and you will see that you dont need soaps or cleansers. good luck to everyone and quit talking s!@# and just try it for yourself and be a testimony to someone else. peace.

Thanks for the very inspiring post dude! I will definitely take note of those symptoms you experienced. If you can outline it in a time line like what happened and when it happened. Then it would surely help! I hope you can help us out here.

And what I am doing here is breaking your wall of false information for YOU to see the TRUTH!

I really have no issue with you or this regimen, got it? If it doesn't work for people, then they will quickly realize it, and no harm done. As with all regimens, I hope that it does work for people. As it is, my regimen is already strikingly similar to yours, only I place higher value on diet.

I know dude. Don't worry about that "truth thing" that you quoted for it is not pointed directly for you but for all of those who are yet to see the truth. I am once behind a wall of misinformation and probably due to my persistence and luck was able to shatter it with the help of open mindedness. ;)

Terrible advice. Not washing your face regularity is the worst thing you can do. Even if someone without acne stopped washing their face for a couple weeks, their pores would become clogged and they would experience breakouts

Acne is mainly caused by underlying issues with the body, not by the medications applied to the face. Not washing your face will only aggravate the issue

Wait for the How and Why section and be enlightened. Your information is one of the many misinformation I and the rest of the world believed and tried to solve but then I and the rest of the world still has acne problem. What does that tells you?

Come on, putting a comment without even checking out the threads of the brave ones I posted? Your the one who is giving a terrible advice. Live your life in acne while I and the rest who took the courage to do this live our life to the fullest.

wapak,

I know that your intention is to help, but there are many causes of acne and you can't say that doing nothing will work for everyone. It seems that you haven't been using this regimen yourself for very long, so give it a month or two before you give your 100% endorsement.

Personally, I began having excess oil on my skin well before i developed acne. I also happen to know that harsh products have not caused my oily skin; I have oily hair as well and i don't apply acne products to my scalp. I also have back and chest acne and i've tried the do nothing approach there (mostly out of laziness) and it DID NOT WORK for my body acne. Granted I always showered with water.

I've also tried the gentle cleanser (not soap) and moisturizer thing on my face, and I gave it a few months..guess what, I got oilier by the day and broke out horribly. It's great if this works for some people, but I don't believe it will work for everyone or even the majority of people. This do nothing regimen has also been titled the "caveman regimen" based on the claim that cavemen probably did nothing to their faces and didn't have acne...many people have brought up the good point that there was no pollution/plastics/pesticides back in caveman days. Did you know that your skin, like your liver and kidneys, is an organ that your body uses to release toxins? Have you noticed that it is very rare to see someone with 100% clear skin these days? Perhaps that is because our toxic load has increased from 10 years ago and certainly from caveman days.

I don't mean to be negative, i really do wish you good luck. I'm just a bit skeptical.

I know that your aim is to help out too, but you are coming from the side of misinformation. Though I believe that it is not your choice to be on that side either, for it is simply because of lack of information and lots of misinformation out there in the past.

First and foremost, even if I am not yet that long in this regimen I assure you that I have a good grasp behind the concept of this regimen. With having observed my self having acne and other people with and without acne this past 6 years when I was most conscious of my skin and other people's skin, with having read through the experience and experiment of the brave ones, and with a in-depth knowledge of the biology of the skin; I am confident in saying that this is the closest thing to the truth, if not then this is the absolute truth. That is why after studying it dedicating my all into this one I realized that this is it and I immediately thought others should and must know this too. It is either now or never!

And with this post I will answer the misconception of the caveman thing. First and foremost, they are not trying to recreate the exact "caveman" scenario thing. Second, if pollution is continuously evolving then don't forget that our body too is adapting and evolving over time.

The caveman thread out there is not about living as a caveman but is about the caveman's way of solving their skin problem at that time. Obviously, they do not have topicals, anti-biotics and whatever there is out there today and so they rely on natural events to do their thing. Which is more effective than using all those chemicals that you put on your face. Given that you have the healthy skin to do it and the intelligence to determine what causes your breakouts and avoid it in the future. If your initial pimples is caused by hormonal changes that results to changes in the skin then leave it be and it will auto-correct itself once it completes it's transformation.(This is something that should have been thought to us before we enter our puberty or adolescence stage, and must be informed to those who are about to enter puberty stage to avoid repeating the same mistakes most, if not all, of us here in this forum did.) But if the acne really is caused by some disease then this regimen would certainly not work for them. There's no such thing as cure all and you should know that with your experience. And there is absolutely a difference with acne caused by disease and pimples caused by changes in the skin which is completely absolutely normal. The mistake here is that once a person sees a pimple he is conditioned by society to think that he has a disease and therefore has to put on something into it that in effect aggravates the normal pimple turning it into full blown acne. And the domino effect goes on and on as you know it.

Now, this is not the caveman regimen but the synthesis(look the meaning of this word to fully understand) of the experiences and experiments that happened in the caveman thread "plus" all the other threads that proceeded with the same concept "plus" a knowledge of skin biology "plus" a personal experience "plus" information of the effects of other regimens out there. With this regimen, the guidelines are set up to avoid the mistakes discovered by those who first tried this out. And this is absolutely different and not the same thing for this time you have a step-by-step laid out to guide you and information to explain the how and why behind the whole process. And mind you that this is all thanks to those who dared to do this not knowing what might happen and is completely in the dark. They became the light that led to this regimen. They are the ones that I posted as the "brave ones".

Have you noticed that it is very rare to see someone with 100% clear skin these days?

Now about this statement of yours. Is it really that rare for you to see someone with 100% clear skin in your place? Because here and anywhere I go what I see is about 40% people are with clear healthy skin. 30% of them have clear skin but is due to makeup, topicals, etc. 10% are those with normal pimple and acne. Now this is of course not 100% absolutely accurate, but one thing is for sure. You are exaggerating your statements because of your skeptic stance towards any information that goes against whatever that is preached out there by the mainstream media, popular culture and society. And remember that it is actually what they preach that led into this problem! I know it's hard to bet your skin's fate on this but you have already bet your skin on many dangerous chemicals out there that you don't even understand what it truly cause! It's just that they are introduced to you as harmless and safe that you believe them because of their status or profession or whatever they have. And now you are presented with something that is absolutely natural and you freak out? Why don't you freak out on those chemicals instead? Do understand and keep in mind though that I am not bashing you but I am bashing your wall of misinformation. If you still insist on reconstructing and preserving and believing that wall of misinformation of yours then so be it. Good luck to you on whatever you choose or have chosen! ;)

@All

To all of you reading this, keep in mind that my arguments are not only for the ones who I have quoted but is also directed to the rest of the world out there. They reveal facts and straightens the twisted ideas of doubtful minds.

I agree with your method for the most part.

My acne was at its worst when I was experimenting with an array of different cleansers, toners, creams, etc. After I started using water and nothing else, the severity of my acne greatly decreased. Although I do agree with your method, I do think that there should be more emphasis placed on eating a healthy diet. By healthy, I mean totally avoiding foods such as vegetable oils (aside from EVOO), gluten, dairy, refined grains, sugar (especially HFCS), white potatoes, and any foods you may have an allergy or sensitivity to.

Anyways, congrats on making the change to only water and I wish you the best of luck :D

Yes! Thanks to you for pointing that out! I really wanted this information to be highlighted by a reply other than me barking all this things in the regimen without further assurance.

A healthy diet is of necessity to the success of this regimen. Not because it may or may not affect acne but because it is what you should have been living with all these times anyway! Now, to relate this with your acne problem, you should know that the condition of our skin depends on what we eat for our body. The more balance you eat the more effective your repair system would be. Now I am not saying that doing something extreme would be more effective, it may actually be more counter-productive and discourage you in the long run. So ease up and eat balanced meal. Check out the internet as there are lots of information out there on how much of this and how much of that we should have. You have met my friend, www.google.com, right? But it is not of importance that you accurately follow them! Just meet it and let it be. Don't let it be too much and don't let it be too little. That is why I emphasize balance! If you suddenly breakout on your way of balancing your diet then determine which caused and eliminate it. There are lots of alternatives out there and we now have supplements as back ups. I say back up only as it is still chemically induced and we all know that as it solves a problem another problem arises and so on and so forth. So enjoy your meals! Think that one day will come where you can eat almost anything you want and still not break out. That is because by that time you have a strong healthy clear skin.

Good for you dude! But do take note that after your recovery you should try to return to your normal habits when you were still a child(in example, washing your face). If you experience no flaking or whatsoever anymore, we can assume that you have recovered your normal healthy skin. Though it is still in it's fresh state and might be easily disrupted by sudden experiments so it is up to you if you want to start your journey back into a healthy lifestyle.

If you decided to give it a go then here is what I would recommend: First try to cleanse your face with tap water only still without touching your face and simply let the water glide into your face. To dry it up, air dry if you can resist the urge of pat drying it with a towel. After cleansing feel your face ,without touching of course, if it feels dry or irritated even in the slightest.

  • If it feels anything weird then stop cleansing your face for another couple of weeks or months then try again the above step. But try to change the water you will use into a bottled one. If that still feels anything weird then the next time you try use a filtered water. Experiment is the key to finding your personal comfort zone so don't be afraid to try anything just make sure not to take it to the extreme.
  • If however you did not feel anything weird and everything seems to be the same just like when you are not washing your face then we can assume that it is now safe to cleanse your face with water. BUT not frequently yet. Wash only when you feel and deem it is necessary to cleanse your face again.

Don't forget to live your life to the fullest!

Have you read my log? We are almost on the same case and is starting at almost the same time. If you don't want to start your own log then you can post your day by day conditions in my log too for our comparison and help each other out all the way in this regimen.

Of course, it is completely natural to go outside and not wash your face with water. Since my start on this regimen I still go by my everyday life like normal except that as much as I can I stay at home. I am also a student at DLSU-D, just in case that we might be school mates XD, and this is the first day that I went to school without washing my face. I also experienced that dust and smoke in the face but I really did not notice much when I looked in the mirror. With you saying that your face looks dirty is most probably just in your mind. Remember that we are conditioned in this society to think that whoever that do not washes himself is dirty even though he is not and our mind is powerful that it can make us believe something that is not even true. Break free from all the bulls#!t this screwed society is telling you. And for your own sake, no matter what it takes, do not tell anyone that you are not washing your face and just live your life the way you use to as if you are not doing something radical or out of this world(in example, this regimen).

To tell you more, I even went to the mall on my first two days in this regimen, without washing my face that is, because I have to drive the car for my family(Drayber mode X.X). Keep a positive outlook dude, you only have to endure this for a month or so. If you can go on with your life on acne for four years or more then what is a month compared to that? Keep it up, I'll keep you posted as you keep me posted too. We will get through this no matter what happens.

On a side note: Dota? Sure! Kahit na d na ko kasing galing noon nung pinaka golden days ko sa dota e nakikipagsabayan pa rin naman ako kahit papaano sa mga magagaling sa tambayan namin. Basta 4v4 or 5v5 yan ha, para kahit maging feeder ako e may pag asa na madala ng iba yung laro! haha..

Don't worry, he contributed by making this regimen a more solid and more fool proof than it was before.

Regarding the hair washing, experiment on your own dude on what is the most comfortable position or technique you can come up with. I think I'll just bow down my head and let the water flow through from may hairline in the back down to to my bangs. Or if that won't do then I'll lie down and let water pass through my hair and scalp. You can do infinite variations on this but it is up to you to come up with it. Muta is morning glory in english dude.(sosyal e no? haha) Well, about this one you can probably just wet a the tip of a towel and use it to remove your morning glory. If you notice, the skin around our eye is different and thus it is very rare to have a pimple there. So I assume that it would be fine to wet it. Do not use powder, it would be the same as putting topicals in your face. And you should still do your body wash for your hygiene. Do not tell anyone even your family if possible, or if you do tell them then make sure that they keep it private. They say that in this regimen you will flake out, that is what I haven't experienced yet. If the flaking do happen to us, then we must avoid water until the flaking subsides no matter how long that takes. But do not worry dude they say it usually just takes a month or the longest is two months until it completely subside. And when the flaking subside then we will rejoice dude for we have successfully restored our normal healthy skin!

(Hala! Yung smart bro ko dito sa bahay ayaw mag connect sa GG. Kaya sa pldtplay battle net ako naglalaro ng online.. sayang hehe..)

Another important information for all those who are into this regimen. While you are into this regimen, make sure to observe if there is anything that you eat that causes you to break out. Filter it out and eliminate it from your diet. Now, you must support your recovery or healing of the skin by eating healthy foods. If you want to introduce new healthy food into your diet then follow the step below to safely bring you towards your goal:

  • After being into the no water part of the regimen, check out if you are no longer breaking out or you are clear for almost a week even if you are still flaking or drying out.
  • Once you confirm that you are no longer breaking out then list your current diet and save it somewhere as a reference later.
  • At this point, search out there in the internet what foods promote skin repair. Or if you prefer to search by using nutrients then google what nutrients promote skin repair and search out what foods provide those nutrients you found.
  • Make a list of the foods that you consider introducing into you diet.
  • Now this is the tricky part so pay close attention, introduce the food into your diet.
  • Remember to experiment, try taking little amounts first then observe for a couple of days if you are not breaking out. Increase your intake by a certain amount then observer again for a couple of days if you are not breaking out.
  • Repeat the above step until you reach the optimum amount of how much you should consume the food you have chosen.
  • Just repeat the above steps to all the other foods you plan on introducing to your diet. But keep in mind to do it one by one. This is to pinpoint the "problem food". Take note that it is a fact that even if a fruit, vegetable, meat or all those foods out there are declared good for your health, remember and never forget that your body will still have a different reaction to it and so watch out for your own health as you know your body the most.

But what if even if you are already on the no water part of the regimen for a 3 weeks or a month and your skin simply keeps breaking out. Then it must be because something in your diet causes the breakouts. Simply try to eliminate one by one the foods that is in your diet. If you are convinced that it is not the one that you eliminated that is causing you to break out then return it to your diet. Do this until you eliminate the "problem food".

Remember that it is for that diet enhancement is for the repair system of your skin and is not a cure to acne alone.

I eat whatever I want nowadays.

MacDonald,KFC or any other Unhealthy food which I used to eat last time.

But I still avoid milk and bread as I don't wish to experiment my face on these food now.

Last time I blacklist all the so called "Unhealthy food" but I still get breakout.

But now I eat them like any other food,no breakout or oily face.

I don't even use soap on my body sometimes or wash my body(and hair) everyday.

My current Regimen:

No water or anything touching my face.(maybe hair touching only)

Eat anything(No milk and bread only)

Drink at least 8 glasses of water(Or whenever you are thirsty)

Sleep minimum of 6hours

Live my life like normal!

EXACTLY!! Dude you are caught the big fish here! You understood the concept behind the restoring healthy clear skin and letting it do it's thing. You also absolutely understood the concept behind the diet enhancement!

But I remind you dude, you should still be taking care of your overall health. Fast food is good every now and then but please don't consider it as your normal meal for the rest of your life.

I recommend you watch this movie -> http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0390521/

I am not trying to scare you, I'm just concerned with your life dude now that your free from acne s#!t.

Take care of your self and thank you for dropping by! Live life to the fullest!

I have changed the title and some of the content to reflect the fact that this is not Dan's proposed regimen.

If you want to share what works for you, fantastic. Please don't be so rude as to insinuate that we would delete the topic simply because it doesn't use Dan's products. lol, and then try to ride his coat tails with the title.

If we deleted everything that failed increase Dan's revenue, 90% of this forum wouldn't exist. Shit, I wouldn't exist. I don't use Dan's regimen, and here I am standing up for him. He wants people to be clear - whatever that takes - that's why this forum exists.


It is like a reason that picks you up

Yeah, I know what he wants. And yeah, I probably was rude about that and I'm sorry. It's just that in other forums, admins and moderators abuse their power and manipulates everything on their whim. It's my mistake to assume such thing here.

@All

I think putting up a guide that's too long or too detailed simply is too much. There are people that checked this out gets information overload and probably freaks out thinking that this is insane. Making them unable to try this effective regimen. This would be simplified later.

Oh, didn't saw that. Just to clear this up. I made this guide patterned to his and so I thought why not pattern with the title too. I really had no idea at first on how to make a regimen walk through, then suddenly I thought of Dan and he have one for his regimen. I am not riding anyone's coat tails with this. XD

And the title "Real Acne.org Regimen" came into my mind thinking that this regimen came into being as a result of the endeavors of the Acne.org community and not by some individual. I hope you catch my drift here, I am not trying to insult or offend anyone.

Now, now. I think this issue should rest here and let's proceed to helping out the community out there with everything we've got.

Read my log dude, I experienced the same thing but was able to resist washing. XD

And I remind you dude, if you do want to wash your face then do not use soap of any kind. This is because your skin is still damaged and will be damaged more no matter how mild your soap is. "But" because I do not know your skin's exact condition I'll leave the discretion to you on whether to use soap or not. Still I will stick to my advice to use just water only as much and as rarely as you can.

I need help guys, I have been doing this regime for 9days now and washed on the 7th day. My skin hasnt calmed down just kept on getting worse, with yellow heads, specialy after shaving (used electric) Im going to trim from now on.

first question, please veryone give your opinion.

1. Im a builder and can get in extreme dust (actualy get my face looking black, and wearing a mask all day) what would you guys do if u were me? not wash? will the pores get clogged and make acne worse??will the skin clean itself?

2. I also hardly got any dead skin, any reason? i dont look very oily also, but keep getting 2 or 3 new spots a day

Cheers guys , all answers appreciated. Mat

yea i here ya, i workout alot and im in athletic activities, so my face is constintly getting dirty some way or another, but just try to use water only, i think the main point is to just get your skin back to its natural state of defense and cleansers, moisturisers, etc all hinder its natural repair system.

Well I have also been looking at all these threads about the water and no water methods for the past week and it all seems to make sense. Most of us in here are connected since the beginning of our acne by letting all the products and pills run our lives instead of just leaving our faces alone. I wish I wouldn't have freaked out by a few small bumps when I was 14 and started screwing up my complexion. I guess we were inexperienced and now we all have the choice to hopefully change for the long term. I have been doing the no water method for about three days now and I'm seeing the side effects mentioned especially the flaking and some itching. There is a lot of willpower involved in this method of whether to give in and wash your face or hang on longer. I will keep on updating from here on and I hope everyone does as well.

Yup. I've went through that phase first hand and I have to say it was really horrible. I wanted to wash my face so bad because of the itchiness (it was totally unbearable), but after that came the light. =D

My face still itches now and then, but it was nothing compared to the 3rd and 4th week into this. The flaking will gradually reduce when you step into the first month, so just keep at it and see if it works for you. :D

@All

I just want to make it clear to all of you that this regime causes different reactions on a case to case basis. So just keep in your mind what the concept behind all these is: To restore your healthy clear skin without relying on chemicals as much as possible. You can personalize this regime as much as you want but make sure to keep the concept intact. Personalizing means you can do things aside from what is written here based on your circumstances as long as it is in line with the concept and the important guidelines(avoid irritation and acne causing foods or action).
