Interesting read. I'm trying something similar. I wear makeup and was taking it off with dr. bronners soap which the ph was much too high. I actually tested it with a ph strip and it was 8-9 on the scale meaning way too alkaline. Skin is 4.5 on the ph scale so acidic. It's important to find a cleanser that has a low ph. My face was soooo dry. We need the acid mantel as i'm sure you read when researching the caveman regimen.

 

Anyways I stopped using makeup and washing my face and its getting much better like with you. I only use water and moisturiser. Are you moisturising btw?

Nope, no moisturizing. No nothing. 

Day 41?

 

Cheeks are completely cleared now, foreheadbumps have gone away, 

Cheek tone and color pretty much fully restored, forhead almost there. 

 

I think that if you have "induced" your own acne by starting to use cleansers/washes, and acne is not genetic, this is the way to go. Im so glad this has helped me.

44.

 

Only main area still clearing is top forehead, most of the texture and bumps have died down, just kinda waiting for some of the smaller whiteheads to die down and color to stop bein red.

49. 

 

Still getting there! Tone and overall health is looking way better. Skin doesnt look "dried" or uneven like when I was doing washes.

Keep us updated! :) I would love to see how this goes. I've been struggling with acne for a long time, and treatments, washing my face, and even moisturizers make my face so red and terrible looking, even though I'm so gentle. I don't want to get rid of washing my face and not touching it because I wear makeup and have to work, sing in choir, etc. I want to see if this method works. If it does, I'll try it because I am so tired of ugly red skin from when I am treating my acne, or severe acne when I just use cleanser and moisturizer. Thanks for the updates, and for being brave enough to do this. :)

How are you supposed to shave while on this regimen? I'm very curious.

How are you supposed to shave while on this regimen? I'm very curious.

 

My regimen on this is kinda different than most others. I just pretend like I dont have acne and dont deliberately rub a lot of stuff or avoid normal shower water (after the 2 week beginning period) 

 

I shaved normally with my normal razors and generic shaving cream. 

 

2 months in and all my pimples and acne are gone. There is still some slight discoloration on my forhead in spots, but really, my skin is now clear. 

 

If you think that you have "induced" your own acne by rubbing and irritating it, this might be the fix for you.

 

Stop looking in the mirror. Stop worrying about how you look. Live your life just like you did before you had skin problems, and I can almost assuredly say your skin will get better.

 

Ill occasionally check in on this thread in coming months and post pictures of how it's improved :)

goood advice that last line. it becomes hard work checking your face everyday! 

 

granted i didnt cave man as long as you did, but when i tried it for 3 days i noticed my skin became incredibly congested.  my skin has problems with keratinisation whereby the outer layer hardens quickly and stops oil getting out, thus causing spots if i don't use a regime. 

 

do you have photos of before and after, i'd like to see

Anyone curious, I used Burts Bees Gel Cleanser, http://www.amazon.co...e/dp/B0027TZPVQ, a relatively "light" cleanser from what I've read, since it's only 1.0% acid, versus a more normal 2. 

I've always suffered from mild acne but in the past year of so it's really flared up. I've tried a butt-load of products ranging from ones sold in drug stores like neutrogena to proactive, none of which have helped. Burt's Bee's Acne Purifying cleanser didn't clear my skin 100%, but it helped a lot and what is left is not nearly as bad as it was before. It smells nice and lemon-y. I've also found that it's most effective when combined with the toner and the blemish stick. (BTW I LOVE the blemish stick). If you're on the fence, it's worth the try. They are also sold in a mini trial kit ($14 for small versions of the cleanser, toner and spot treatment) for those of you who wish to try it out before committing to a large bottle ($10).

First like 5 days I didnt wash my face at all, then I did a little after that. 

Im still having skin tone problems, the forehead area in particular is pretty much zit free, but the skin is discolored and red. Still.
