Hello, everyone! I have been a long time lurker here and I finally registered into this account because I wanted to talk about my experience with the caveman regimen. It's been a week and I plan on updating it. To start of, I am a 23-year-old female who has suffered from mild-moderate acne since I was 16. My skin is sensitive and oily. I decided to try the caveman regimen because when I moved into the dorm a week ago, my skin started to get extremely irritated despite having used the products for a long time without any problems. I got really desperate so I decided to give my skin a break and try to build my acid mantle again. It was all or nothing.
Mind you I did this regimen before my period (I was feeling the usual symptoms) and usually I would get these large, painful cysts around my chin and pustules in my cheeks. However, my skin only got ONE cyst which turned into a head overnight and as for pustules, there were from bumps that's always been on my face and suddenly turned into a head as well. Blackheads were also easy remove. (I couldn't help myself.)
One the first night to the regimen, what I did was splashed my face with water as I showered and let it air dry. I try not to touch my face and it was weird! I was so used to taking so much time washing my face and now, my morning routine is quicker. I tend to splash water on my face every night when I shower.
The only bad thing that came out of this is the dermatitis that I got. I always get dermatitis around the corners of my mouth so don't fret! Now I wash just the corners of my mouth while I just splash water on my face every night.
This is my update so far! Hope I helped someone and I will be updating every week!
