I stopped washing my face with soap and water (except in the shower; no soap on face)... i use a cotton ball with a solution of 1 sqeezed lemon, i dilute the lemon juice with 1/3 part water and 1 drop of tea tree oil.. i have a little tiny pump bottle i put the solution in (shake well before use.) I go through 3 or 4 cotton balls after cleaning my face and you'll see lots of dirt pulled off your face... i use this 2-3 times a day...
you will notice instant results and a glow in the morning... the lemon restores the skins natrual ph while acting like an astringent. and the tea tree oil gives you all day antibacterial protection.
Most importantly for this regimen to work is to cut out most unnatural chemicals from diet and surrounding. if you can't pronounce the ingredient dont use it (beware of products claiming to be "natural.")
Switch to non-flouride tooth paste
get a good water filter... (i use berkey water filters... they have an attachment to remove the sodium flouride...) its a very good investment for good long term overall health... god only knows what nasty shit is in the tap water.
Only use room tempeture water on your face... slighty warm water is okay
Also i notice when i drink freshly juiced organic carrot and apple juice it help clear up my break outs.
i started then broke my regimen (went on vaccation) (broke out on vaccation) now im back to my healthy choices ;P ill post my before and after pictures in a week or two.
