End of the road

I'm on day 30 and I had a doctor's Appointment. Just a normal physical because I'm going for my drivers permit. She took one look at me, and I could tell, all she saw was my acne. She asked if I was using anything and I told her some products I tried, but that I had stopped using them because they didn't work. First thing she did was prescribe a antibiotic to kill the bacteria inside that was causing it. Then she prescribed a gel that you put on the acne that  speeds up cell turnover. She told m

Week 4

I haven't felt a need to update because my skin has relatively been the same. I have noticed that the black heads on my nose are sort of "pushing" themselves out. I don't know what to do about that. I've been sticking to exfoliating once a week. You would not believe how amazing it feels to get the grease and dead skin off.  Some mornings I will wipe with a warm wet wash cloth. I'm not as itchy as I used to be. I just got some zinc tablets and I've been taking them for three days now. No change

18 days in

So I'm roughly 18 days into this. My skin seems the same since day 1. But it's itchy!! I don't know why. I know it's not eczema or a rash. Is this a normal thing on the caveman? I don't really know what to do about it. And the texture of my skin is horrible. I wiped my face with a warm, wet wash cloth today, and that felt really good. I'm meeting with family tomorrow so I'm a little worried. I'm definitely going to continue with this, because I've come this far, but unless my skin really shows a

Caveman update

I'm about three weeks into this. Now I would really count the first two weeks because the first week I exfoliated twice, the second I tried a three day thing, but this week I really didn't wash. I only splashed with water in the morning after my workout, and used oil to remove my makeup at night. Yesterday I used a natural toner to remove some oil because I was going out. My face feels and looks horrible. I know wearing makeup can't be good for me, but it's so bad I'd look like a freak if I didn

Feeling defeated

I'm really fed up with my skin. I can't stand living like this. I know I'm a beautiful girl but my skin makes me look so ugly. I want to stick to the caveman routine but what if I'm wasting time and I really need products too fix it. Because right now I don't know if my skin is purging or reacting. I have more breakouts then I ever did before and it's so itchy. I've cried more about my skin this week then I ever have before. It's affecting my mood, my relationships and my faith. And I can't stop

Continuing on

So I had a bad day and almost wanted to give up. Of course the first thing I did was reach for the face wash. I wish I hadn't. Anyway, day 11 is the first time I ever cried about my skins condition. Day 10 was really good, and I was excited to finally see a change in my skin, but the next day it seemed really bad again. My once smooth chin had little whiteheads all over it again. I really don't know what to do about it, but this week I'm really going to try and stick to it and not wash at all, j

Day 9 and 10

Day 9 I woke up with the cystic acne back. I had a spot on my chin and later in the day a spot formed on my cheek. Now, first let me say this: I'm no expert, but I don't need to be to tell you to LEAVE. THEM. ALONE!!! Seriously, if you get cystic acne, do not touch, do not pick, do not press..... don't even look at it if you can manage. Unlike whiteheads that are above the skin and can usually be picked with no real problem, cysts are below and need time to surface. So let it sit there for a few

Questions about the caveman routine

So having oily skin, my first question is, is this really right for me? Is it good to just leave the oil on my skin without washing? Wouldn't that cause problems? I've read about people who have oily skin and had success with the routine, but I'm still a little worried. That's why I've been gently cleansing here and there. I definitely like the less is more approach. I don't know if I'm comfortable with doing nothing. Could using a gentle cleanser at night and rinsing with water in the morning b

Trying out the caveman routine

I was really desperate when I found the caveman routine. Now, this freaked me out, and I know why. Because I was addicted to the products I was using on my face and the false hope they would clear my skin. But reading about it, it made sense. And did I want to live the rest of my life with a 10 step routine that didn't even work? The worst that could happen is nothing and I'll just go on living with bad skin, but at least I won't be wasting time and money on products. So I started caveman over
