Yes, you wash your face with water only and quit topicals. The idea if that by doing this, you allow your skin to heal itself instead of damaging it with BP, etc. It does not work for everyone. I would assume that it would do no good for acne-prone tweens/teens who are starting puberty. But I am almost 19 so I figured I was a little past that (my parents outgrew acne also...hoping it was genetic) and that it was worth a shot. It's working well so far. I decided to try this because I was more concerned with the red marks that BP left instead of an occasional zit here and there.
Yes, they are caused by the same thing, high androgen levels. I really suggest you see your doctor about this, as it could be a symptom of a more serious hormonal condition. Dark, permanent hair on your face if you're a female is the hallmark sign of hormonal imbalance.
I do not think she is referring to dark, permanent hair. I believe she is speaking of very fine, light hairs, like a peach fuzz, that are not visible except for up close. Am I correct?

but yea... i have been trying to pinpoint the cause of my acne and miraculously right now my face is the clearest it's been in a long time, i wonder if it's a coincidence. also i am guessing more hair = more oil and therefore more acne.
