Doing Nothing - Teen Acneteen doing nothing teenage acne experiment all natural natural protein men
Posted 03 July 2012 - 01:07 AM
I've had acne since I was about 12. It's always made me feel very insecure and depressed. I've tried multiple things, but have tried to stay away from the drugs such as Acutane, because of the possible side effects. The one thing I tried for the longest time was Epiduo. I can tell you more about that if you like, but this log will mostly be about my current regimen - nothing. I've been doing this for a few weeks now with pretty positive results. Better than I was expecting, at least. I shower every morning and night, and rarely wash my face between showers. In the shower I wash my face with whatever is there (within reason), typically Dove Men's Body/Face wash. That's not important though, because the point of this is, is basically acting like I don't have acne. I'm not using any product for it at all. I still use a generic moisturizer every morning on my face, and wash my face every time I shower, but no special acne products. I'll try to post everyday with a pithy log of the day and my skin condition. Right now I've got a few pimples, especially on my forehead. But my overall face is pretty clear (in comparison to usual) because I got a little sunburned the other day. Which, for whatever reason, always helps with my acne. Though I don't recommend going out and burning your face.
Please feel free to post and comment all you like, I appreciate input and am happy to answer questions!

Another thing that I think helps with overall skin smoothness is protein. Eating a lot of it. I'm also working out so that might just be me, but try to make sure anything you're lacking, eat more of it. Balancing your diet is everything.

Plant-based diet is the best medicine for everything.. That's if you consume at least 80% raw, mainly from veggies and fruits.
Exercising: cardio is great for skin and lifting a bit.
Thinking positive and try not to stress or think about acne.
I am doing these and my skin is currently very smooth and clearing up!
I am a vegan raw 100%. I feel better, have more energy, saving animals a year, glow skin, I look younger, etc.

I hope you can find something in there that helps. I've used tons of products, so I've been around the block in terms of over the counter washes and other products x.x
