In Topic: washing your face every 3 hours

I personally found that when I stopped washing my face entirely that my skin really started to heal and get back to what it's supposed to be.

I am currently 100% clear with no washing my face for the last 2 months or so. Not even honey masks or anything of that sort - just literally doing nothing.

I think it's very important to keep your skin's natural defence intact, but it just seems that not many people are willing to do this because they're so obsessed with the products they have, and are convinced it's doing them good.

Okinawans, Kitavans, Inuit and Ache all lived acne-free without scrubs and cleansers, so there's absolutely no reason that we need these too, and if you still think you do then you are deluded and I beg you to go cleanser-free for a month or two. You can thank me later.

I completely agree with alternate and healthoid - even though we think acne is a terrible thing, at least it forces us to be aware of things like sleep, stress, inflammation, digestion and overall health - and could very well have inadverdently prevented a lot of people from developing type 2 diabetes and other serious health concerns. Even the mere fact that we flush toxins through the skin means that our body is working properly despite our condition, and I believe this is often why you generally don't see acne on fat people - because their toxins are held in causing a myraid of serious health concerns.

Personally I think (yes it's hard to) that we need to take acne as a blessing, and I for one am about 4000 times healthier since being aware of my diet/exercise/stress levels due to acne than I ever was, so for that I say thank you acne.

Intermittent fasting is amazing! And if you're worried it doesn't fit with your schedule, that it just sounds stupid in general, that you'll be hungry or be an unhealthy weight, this thread I started a little bit back could change your mind completely. I'm 21 and a uni student, very competitive athlete with a girlfriend, very active social life and I intermittently fast every single day, I'm basically never hungry and I've gotten even leaner than ever. Please just read over this thread and check the links at the bottom if you need some reassrance. I'm actually so happy since I've found IF, it takes basiclly all the worry out of eating and makes you healthier! Sounds too good to be true haha.

Sigh...diet has been proven through studies already, it does affect your skin.


I dont understand how someone can have even a basic, high school understanding of chemistry or biology and honestly believe diet doesn't affect your skin. I guess it takes all kinds.


haha I actually can't get over this..

that's like saying the world's flat, or that we never went to the moon.

*sigh*
