I'm 16 Female. I've been having pimple/acne since I was 12. I have pretty oily skin. Never dry.
I have been using drugstore facial cleanser, toner and moisturizer when I start getting pimples.
Awhile ago, I came across the caveman regimen or the water only regimen. I started last month and my skin is getting worst at that month. About 20+ days, my face started getting itchy. I couldnt bear with the itchiness, so I used a facial cleanser to wash my face. WORST MISTAKE. My face is all red. But the redness started to get away. The following day, I started washing it with just water and apply some moisturizing cream to get rid of the itchiness. My face didnt get better even when I applied cream on it. It was red but it wasnt itchy.
Then, I started to not use the cream. I decided to wash my face only with water. The dead skin started to pile up and the itchess is back! It was real real real itchy. I then scratch it and exfoliate with my fingers. It did get worse. It was all red. But the next day, the redness got away a little. Whenever I wash my face with water, my face goes dry.
Last 2 days, I decided to not wash my face as its drying and itchy. My skin now is oily but dead skin/dry skin still appear. All in all, my pimples did improve but I just cant bear with the itchiness. Those dead skin are always around my mouth and nose area. I try my best to not bother about the itchiness but I just couldnt resist. I feel that my face is kinda smelly too (?)
What do you guys think? I need some advice espicially on those itchiness. Is it getting better or..?
