It's either this or accutane. Still undecided.

Accutane is too dangerous to be considered as an option. Its long term ramifications :o

Yea I'm kind if leaning toward this, I just finished my college classes and got fired from my job so I really don't care about any initial breakout if there is any. Did you experience an initial breakout? Do you moisturize at least or no chemicals at all? Thanks.

While being on the caveman regimen,my skin is naturally moisturized since i'm born with naturally oily skin.So no i'm putting no chemicals on face AT ALL.It's just plain cold drinking water.That's it.

What you are doing is good, altering your diet.

The stuff what you're doing to your face not so good. Try to wash your face once daily at the most because of all the pollution you face every day. 

try to use soaps that don't dry the skin. 

Once all the pimples are gone and scars are present. You can start using an exofoliant that contains camphor (you may need to make it). Camphor is detoxifying agent. This will speed up recovery process. 

check out my thread http://www.acne.org/...ul-detox-drink/

if you want long term clear skin, while eating foods you want.

Ive now done the caveman for 8 days, and I feel really good about the first week,
Ive gotten some small zits last days, just like 2-3, but thats probably because I cheated on my no sugar diet and ate alot of biscuits this weekend. Apart from that I have almost no zits, just one big that is staying with me since the day before I started this.

Have I already got through the "getting worse fase"? Or should that appear this coming week? 

Strange to notice that eating alot of bad foods havent caused a maior breakout for me now, usually I get 2-3 big zits when I eat stuff packed with sugar.

It's my 27th day of the caveman.I wash my face only once with water and that is when i'm dripping with sweat after the gym workout.So far it has been a mixed experience with occasional breakouts here and there.But i must emphasize on the importance of not using any artificial cleansers on your face which only makes things go hay wire! Currently i am having two big pimples on the right side of my face.While they look pathetic,i'm positive that they will heal.And that there will be one day when i'll be having clear skin.We live in hope :)

I can see light at the end of this seemingly endless tunnel!

about 4 weeks ago i came across reviews for coconut oil to cure acne so i did a lot of research and saw people saying that they've been suffering from terrible cystic acne for years and even tried accutane and it came back or didnt work or had bad side effects!! and when they tried coconut oil it cleared up! so i decided to give it a try..because i was really desperate! I had nothing to lose because my skin was already bad! So i started using it 3 weeks ago and my skin has cleared right up! Mind you i still have scars but it also lightens scars too!!! like i just washed my makeup off and i was like holy they have lightened a lot!! its cheap! and has a ton of other uses. theres like 101 uses so id you dont end up liking it to treat acne theres other things you can use it for. lol!! I use the Nutiva brand. Its the best one in my opinion! i rinse my face with hot water, massage the coconut oil in as a cleanser for a few minutes and then i rinse it off. Gently dry my skin and then apply a bit more as a moisturizer and go to bed. I wake up and repeat! i know its iffy to put oil on your face lmao but read up on it! its antifungal and all this other stuff. trust me i did not think it was going to work but im SOOOOO glad i tried it because i was so depressed looking in the mirror!! and its so cheap and healthy. I even put it in my tea because they say it can help if you ingest it too...but anyways give it a try if you are desperate and if it doesnt work at least you tried right? But you may be very surprised=) but MAKE SURE its ORGANIC, EXTRA VIRGIN, UNREFINED lol i cant stress that enough because i saw people saying oh it made my skin worse blah blah blah...well obviously they must have been using refined or something. try and get the Nutiva brand if you can its like 12.99 for a jar and it last a long time like if you just use it on your face itll last you like a year!. me not so much because i put it in my tea and on food and all over my body and in my hair lol. If you for some reason did break out then just stop using it. but you should google "coconut oil on acne reviews" and see for yourself how many people its worked for. my skin is oily too and it still worked! if you're really stuck and dont want harsh products give it a try! but do some research before you try and maybe test it out on your arm or something to see if you have any reactions!!

Caveman regimen is the worst guys... It will.get rid off ur acne... But u will end.up with seborrhic dermatitis.... Sebum gets collected over d skin which irritates it that's y d red bumps... Was struggling with dis stupid caveman thin since.few months.... M skin was damn irritatin after this.. I was lik stuck... If I remove the dead skin it's all red if I dont it's all gross... Ahh hated it.. Few days bac I removed the dead skin... N I could see a liquid thru pores then it hardened... Din kno wat itwas but that was d think which was makin dead skin again n again... Dead skin is lik scab which protects underneath skin but it never goes on its own... K for the people who are on it... Guys post d pics... I hardly find any pics... Ppl do not do... I suffered.. It's just dont irritate your face.. Which cud b done easily... Water irritates,scrubbing rubbing, chemicals irritate so go for the gentle cleanser with no water no rubbing,massaging o scrubbing...

I have been doing caveman for about a week now (no water, no anything) after doing honey and oatmeal for a month and my skin freaked out at first for a few days in tiny white heads and a few big pimples. It seems to be healing up now. And this morning I woke up it looked great except a few spots still healing. My face isn't oily anymore and inflammed. I'm trying to have my ph balance and my acid mantle rebuild itself after years of abuse....does anyone know if light dry brushing would destroy the acid mantle because my skin is gonna need it soon.

the dead skin is really a prob.. if u try to remove its gonna com along with the new skin bneath.. so u wil b left with red n raw skin.

Hi there, I tried this a few months back and stayed on this caveman regimen up until the beginning of this month and my acne just exploded. I was feeling pretty hopeless the next morning, so hopeless that I forgot to bring my CeraVe cleanser that I've been using for quite some time. I went downstairs to take a shower and saw a bar of soap sitting there and I said to my self "Why not?" So I grabbed the bar of soap lathered it up in a wash cloth and scrubbed my entire face (which felt very soothing). A few hours later I went to the bathroom and got a quick glance at my face. It had basically no redness at all and it had a very healthy glow to it plus a smooth soft touch to it. I realized that sometimes the hardest problems have the easiest fixes to them. Obviously this will not work for everyone but it has wiped out like 75% of my acne and red marks. I never would've guessed that it was this simple, and I get to enjoy it because I know it's working. biggrin.png

You need to use a mild cleanser and oil free moisturiser, not using any products will clog your skin up, and stripping it dry will also aggravate the problem. You're doing well to try and solve the problem from the inside out, have you had your testosterone levels tested?

Caveman didn't work for me. Skin dandruff went out of control. That's the toughest part of the regimen.

I dont understand how you do this regimen? When you shower how do you not wash your face?

Also, I need to wash my face every day especially in spring as the pollen from flowers and trees makes me allergetic.

 

Is there any study which supports this or are people just trying anything and everything ? Just curious.

When it's all hopeless,when there's no light at the end of the tunnel for you.when you're on the verge of giving up...then even a glimmer of hope,a spark of success makes you do un-scientific things :) You don't need a doctor's advise,you don't need testimonies :) . I'm just washing my face since six months now and i'm BETTER.

On day 5 of the caveman regimen now. Only washed my face 4 times so far with just a splash of water. I have to say my face gets incredibly oily throughout the day and this is really annoying. I am also experiencing a very bad breakout af about 5 or 6 whiteheads. My skin has also gotten very rough in the areas of oily skin (forehead, nose, cheeks, chin). Hopefully this is the detox period and there are better days ahead!

Okay so Im on day 9 of the caveman regimen and my skin feels fantastic, but sadly the look of it doesn't. I decided to begin this regimen after being on a camping trip where I couldn't wash my face, so I thought why not lets just go with it and not wash it anymore. Im kind of worried about whether or not this will actually help or work for me because my "acne" isnt that bad at all. I used to have deep like cysts on my cheeks and side of my face but that cleared up after I changed my diet. Now my major skin problems are more on the pore level. Like very visible pores and clogging (like you know the little blackheads or filaments on your nose? Yeah I have those everywhere) and I have little whiteheads now from the regimen and its been a major battle to not pick at anything.
I do it the no water way currently because my skins feels really tight/dry afterwards.
If anyone has any words of wisdom or advice or history with this regimen and its effectiveness on the pore level, it would be greatly appreciated.
