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

It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end. Here's to finding my end.
God is good to me..........more than I deserve.
Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
