Hello,

I am new to this website and just found this post.  I should tell you I am in the middle of the exact same thing as you.  I am on day 26 I think of the water only regimen.  For five days in there, I went without any water and my face broke out even more.  I still haven't cracked and gone back to soap but my cheeks look TERRIBLE.  There are whiteheads and little red spots everywhere.  I feel like I can't leave the house sometimes.  It's really difficult to get through.  I have been posting some stuff trying to find out if anyone went through this.  I'm glad to hear you are having the same issue.  It's two weeks past when you posted so I'm curious how you are doing.

 

I honestly cringe every time in the mirror and just keep wondering when I will finally crack and use something. 

 

Hope you are well!

@JenGK, You just went to your regular doctor and asked to get tested for this?  Or was this a derm or holistic doctor? I didn't know they could test for that and would be interested if it's something fungal.

I started the water only wash regime 25 days ago and my skin is the worst it has ever been in my life.  However, some people tell me that there might be a light at the end of the tunnel.  I just have to stick it out.  But maybe I should look into antifungal

Hey Caveox,


I am on day 20 of the water only regimen.  I just let warm water run down my face for a few seconds in the shower everyday and then towel dry. 

 

My face looks worse than it ever has in my life.  I have whiteheads and red splotches all over.  I'm really starting to lose hope. 

 

I didn't get the skin mask, just flaky skin here and there.  A lot of flaky skin the first week but not as much any more.



Also, seroyal, did you go through a purging period or worsening period?  I'm trying to gauge whether or not this water only is working for me.  My skin is worse than ever and I'm only 20 days in.  No cysts though.

My two cents:  I would stay away from the harsh topicals (BP, sal acid).   I used to have some zits appear but for the most part good skin.  I used some of those topicals to treat something minor and it has left my skin in the worst condition of my life, fighting an uphill battle.  Im not sure it's possible to get my skin back the way it was.


Just my experience though...

 

Obviously, if you have used those and they work, then nevermind! Everyone reacts differently.
