Hi. I'm an 18 year old with skin that has been abused by products. My ignorant attitude has damaged my skin and I fear it is beyond repair. The tight, red and oily skin I have been left with is much more devastating for me personally than the mild acne I had before the products. Having identified my skin as dehydrated whilst also lacking the money to buy a wide range of products I was wondering whether the caveman regime would help repair my skin. Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Just don't wash with soap. I haven't in years, other than hand washing. Not stripping away lipids and the acid mantle is a good thing. Most f the rest of the things caveman followers tell each other about no water & dead skin masks is nonsense.

I just wipe my face with a warm damp cloth. Oil cleanse if I have make up to remove. Oil cleansing will also remove blackheads.

I have come to the conclusion that Nearly everything in the skin & hair care aisles are there to fix a problem caused by the other items in the skin care aisle. I'm also learning to manage my hair without shampoo. Once you get through the waxy, oily stage, your hair just magically becomes wonderful. I don't need conditioner and I've always needed tons of conditioner to deal with tangles. And it doesn't frizz at all. The other week, I walked several blocks in the warm muggy drizzly rain to return my redbox movie and no frizz.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
