This has been working consistently for me for many months now. It is definitely worth a try for anyone serious about finding the root cause of their acne.

Not gonna trawl through all 49 pages but "9. Don't apply your moisturizer over areas of your face that are not dry. Applying moisturizer where it is not needed can increase the risk of clogged pores by mixing with excess sebum and "gluing" dead skin cells to the skin's surface." is a pretty bad tip; if you don't moisturise oily skin it'll continue to be excessively oily because it isn't hydrated.

 

It has been strongly suggested that "Moisturizing" alone has no effect on the amount of sebum produced by your sebaceous glands.

It's strange you lament that sebum "glues" dead skin cells to the skin's  surface because that's exactly what the mineral oil in moisturizer does! Only in this case you're stripping the skin's natural oil through "washing" and "exfoliation" and replacing it with substances that are unnatural to the body!

 

As you might have guessed, I practice what I preach. I do not wash my face, use any products, nor do I exfoliate. It takes a long time for the skin to adjust to this "cave man" regimen, but once it does, the results are impressive.

I only believe the latter as I feel humans should naturally be mating in their 20's.

 

Then you're going to have to accept that you'll naturally have acne throughout your 20s, if this is indeed what's causing your problem.

I don't understand where I went wrong.

 

You failed to comprehend that everyone is different.

 

What works for me isn't necessarily going to work for you, or anyone else.

 

The only thing you can do is experiment on yourself until you find out what works for you.

 

The first thing I would suggest is to avoid all sexual acts for at least four weeks. Preferably longer. The longer you can 100% abstain, the better chances you have of discovering how much this is actually effecting you. Two weeks is not enough time to accurately measure your body's reaction to these hormone fluctuations.
