I used accutane 8 years ago and completely cleared my skin. For the next 7 years I only washed with water and had 100% clear skin. Oils came back last year and I started to break out again. I went as long as I could with only using water to wash, but it didn't work and I had to use stronger stuff. Only worked when the accutane dried my skin out.

I went about 50 odd days without washing my face and kept a log on acne.org. My skin improved by the day (following some initial breaking out in small whiteheads, but I believe this was due to irritation in the previous weeks before I started the caveman.)
I can attest to the fact that you should stick to it if it seems to be working for you because I made the huge mistake of slowly getting back into skincare. A face mask here, a cleanser there, and within a few weeks I started breaking out in cystic acne on my temples and chin. I was confused and upset. Then I came back to my log and had to slap myself because I realised that I had stopped doing the caveman regimen and then wondered why I was breaking out like I used to. What a dummy.
I am now on day 6 of round 2 of the caveman regimen and I'm already seeing improvements!
Regimen: The "no wash" caveman regimen which I am keeping a log of on acne.org. I only wear light eye makeup which I remove with coconut oil.
Diet: Whole, high nutrient, unprocessed foods. Avoid gluten, dairy, processed sugars and caffeine.
I eat lots of fruit, veggies, eggs and fish and drink at least 2.5 litres of water a day. I also drink a lot of green and peppermint tea daily.
Supplements: 2x 1000mg Omega 3 Fish Oil, 1x Vitamin D3 Tablets 25ug, 1x Zinc (Gluconate 15mg)
Routines: Sleep for 8 hours a night and wake early, walk daily and spend time outside, guided meditation as often as I can, workout around 4 times a week.

I think i will use a salicylic acid peel every 6 months or so just to get rid of the last of the scars, but no more than a few times a year.
Please try the caveman regimen. Honestly, its the best thing I ever tried for my skin. Oh, also, milk thistle supplements...really really worked.
I tried to upload a pic of my perfect skin but it keeps posting it upside down lol
