Finally a solution

Hi all, I’m resurrecting this blog because I have made significant progress and I really wanted to share it with you all. And I wanted to catch you up on how I got here. Progress pics below. In my last post, which was 7 or 8 months ago, I was deciding whether to end the caveman regimen. I did decide to end it and have not been on it since then. It simply wasn’t working; I wasn’t seeing the progress that others were seeing at 3 months. At that point, I started using a “barrier healing”

Week 11 + 12

Hi everyone, I know I said in my last post I would make a decision about ending the caveman regimen. I basically DID decide to end the regimen. But it’s been two weeks since then and I haven’t stopped. I even did research and bot a new moisturizer and cleanser. I was so ready to end the regimen. But then...my skin actually started to look a little better.     What I’m experiencing: Less dry than usual over the course of two weeks. Today was pretty bad tho. I SAW the skin flakes an

Week 10

Hi everyone, How many of you actually keep up with these updates? Honestly kudos to you if you read my boring posts. Anyways, my skin hasn’t changed much this week.  What I’m experiencing: A couple more break outs. Dryness and itchiness is pretty intense and frustrating. The weather is cooling down a lot and it irritates my skin.  What I’m doing: nothing!  Other notes: Really thinking about ending this caveman regimen attempt. Though my acne is marginally better than when I f

Week 9

Hi everyone, Gonna keep this post short. I dont have much to report. Theres been some improvement since last week. Theres some breakouts on the right side of my face but they dont seem too major. I’m done nitpicking and getting upset at break outs. It seems inevitable throughout this healing process that I’ll have break outs. And its just better for my mental health to just not make a big deal out of it.  What I’m experiencing: My skin feels less dry and breakouts were clearing. Yester

2 Months (week 7 and 8)

Hi everyone, I didn’t realize its already been two weeks since my last post. I’m sorry I haven’t been consistent. Work has kept me really busy these days. The past two weeks have been challenging. The first week, I broke out moderately and I have no idea why. The second week consisted of healing and mild break outs. Discussion below, pics at the bottom.    What I’m experiencing: A couple days after I wrote my last post on Sept 4, I broke out on both cheeks. I don’t have any pictur

Week 6

Hi everyone! Sorry this post is almost 2 weeks late. My sister came to visit me so I’ve been quite busy entertaining her. This past week and a half has been a very VERY challenging time. It’s one of those weeks where you know you fucked up bad. And boy did I fuck it up. Last week, I told you all I will begin wiping my face with a cold towel instead if leaving my skin alone. Within the first 24 hours of the second “wipe” ever, my skin broke out in unprecedented ways. I will show you pics of

Week 5

Hi everyone! I can’t believe I’m still updating this blog 5 weeks in. This might be the most consistent thing I’ve ever done. Anyways, this is another one of those weeks where you’re not sure what you did wrong. It felt like I was doing SO well last week. From my August 15th pictures, it looked like I was finally clearing up for good. But, just a couple days later, I broke out in 3-4 angry zits!! More discussion below, progress pics at the bottom.  What I’m experiencing: Like I said ab

1 Month!

Hi Everyone! I’m really proud I made it to 1 month guys. It’s been a wild ride. Week 4 has seen only a little change. I dare say it looks a little better. But I’ll let you be the judge of that. As usual, discussion will be below. Progress pics at the bottom.  What I’m experiencing: The dryness from last week has not changed much. Skin feels a bit tight and flaky. The dead skin mask is real. Its gross. But I’m living with it. Breakouts come and go. A couple days ago, I swear I felt 4 na

Week 3

Hi everyone! We made it to week 3. I wish I could say all of my problems are over and my skin is glowing and flawless. Unfortunately, I’ve hit some roadblocks along the way; increased breakouts, worsening dryness and granular texture. To summarize, week 3 felt like a step backward. In-depth discussion below but otherwise, progress pics are at the bottom.    What I’ve been experiencing: I’ve had some big breakouts this week that I’m still recovering from. My skin seems to break out

Week 2

Hi everyone, This is my 2 week update. Week 2 has been much kinder to me than week 1 has. I’m experiencing some interesting results. I can finally see some healing and clearing happening and I’m very happy about that. Keep reading for a more in depth discussion but otherwise my week 1-week 2 progress pictures are below.  Note that it hasn’t exactly been a week; I’ll be busy the next couple of days so I decided to post a little early. What I’m experiencing: I’ve had some skin flaki

Week 1

Week 1, you haven’t made it easy for me at all.  Reader, when you see these pictures, I wont blame you if you decide the caveman regimen is a load of bullsh*t.  I will also say that this week has been very challenging for me. I haven’t kept my routine the same throughout this week. The weather at the beginning of the week was just awful. I mean, 98 degrees for almost 3 days straight. So, in the first image, you will see me red and sweaty. I had to splash with cold water twice a day ins

Caveman Personal Log: Where it began

Hello everyone!  Let’s just jump in. One summer day, I was a 16 year old with some zits on my face during a routine check up with my doctor. Nothing major really; I had beautiful, clear, flawless skin otherwise. It was just an off day. And more importantly, I never did a damn thing for my skin; I just splashed it with water twice a day. Anyways, back to the doctor’s appointment. My doctor saw I had a couple zits on my face so she prescribed me a benzoyl peroxide face wash, a topical antibio
