I have been doing water only for about 3 months now & I'm 99% clear. I have one tiny pimple smaller than a pin head. I know how it is I have had moderate to severe acne for 7 years. I understand each person is different, but really soaps,cleansers will only irritate your skin. You DON'T need them. When you wash your face with a cleansers or soap, it gets rid of the oils you need to fight bacteria. Or your body will begin over producing them. Thus, making you look oily. If you apply oil/moisturizers for dry skin, then your body thinks it has enough oil and will stop producing the oil you need to fight bacteria. Also, you don't want to wash your face with water too often, because even water can be bad if used too much. Here is what I do...
--at night I take a bath (not a shower) sometimes I do shower though & when I do shower I wash my hair & avoid letting the shampoo get on my face as much as possible the reason I avoid the shower is because I like my water to be really hot & that can really aggravate my face so it's the water temperature & shampoo as to the reason I prefer a bath over a shower
--after that or sometimes when I am in the bath i use water that is LESS than luke warm....think of the temperatures of rain, rivers, lakes, you get it..I splash some of the water on my face about 3-4 times then wet a white wash rag (i don't trust the dyes) and I gently wipe away my make up/dead skin I don't apply moisturizer I let my skin do "it's thing" and in the morning I'm not oily nor dry
--i don't wash or anything in the morning but I do put on my make up I use Neutrogena Healthy skin liquid foundation (the only thing my skin will tolerate) & a little bit of the skin clearing powder.I try to balance everything out..(my acne didn't clear because of the powder) because when I used that & washed my face I still had acne.. I have had to be very picky with my make up some products that Neutrogena & other companies make definitely break me out about an hour after I put it on (so pay attention to that, when testing out make up)
-other things I have tested out I have tried skipping on so many foods for months at a time & it didn't really help much I'm allergic to milk (i had a test done) but I still love it & still drink it ..stupid right? but i drink it everyday and I'm still clear..i'm definitely not saying eat bad..but i'm saying i am not the healthiest person on earth. i try to drink a lot of water but at room temperature I usually drink about 3-4 16 oz bottles a day.
sorry for blabbing on just wanted to share my experience on things..oh and i've tried going caveman before i actually went with the routine for about 8 months things didn't get worse, but they didn't get all the way better until incorporated water into the "doing nothing method"..but if you think about it cavemen USED water..so yeah..basically what i personally recommend is if you have sensitive skin don't use hot water/warm water/cleansers/soaps/most make ups...one more thing tweezing my eye brows has always broke me out..& it still does when I do so I have stopped doing that..point is different things cause different bumps but cleansers & soaps definitely won't help the situation..they might for a couple hours but not long term..pay attention to your bodies reactions but don't stress yourself out!
