Still not using soap, but am rinsing with water. The reason being I live in a smelly city and after 10 days of no water my face broke out in a terrible way.
Now, I have a 1-monther on my chin. Not possible to hide. Just give up.
Diet must be the key. Eaten lots of veg, but had a chocolate desert yersteday. Also, drinking soft drinks to mix with my vodka.
Spots on shoulders. Two in opposite positions. Nice!
Skin not so greasy this morning. Two small breakouts on nose. Peeling on nose - mild.
Still 3 noticeable spots; 1 on chin, 1 between nose and cheek and one fading on left cheek.
Had a shower. some water ran down face. After pat dry, noticed that area was flaking lightly. So sensitive.
Drank three cans of diet Pepsi with vodka last night. Not good. Had a some yogurt as well.
Day 2 Morning
Yesterday's spots reduced. Redness going from them and cheek next to nose bottom left has closed over. Skin feels smooth.
No more fizzy drinks or alcohol. Two pure small white heads on right side of nose/cheek. Cheek area next to nose has seen a flurry of outbreaks in the last week. Using sea salt to spot deal with outbreaks. If they continue, will drop sea salt. Yet, the salt does a wonderful job of bringing the pus to the surface and cleanses really well.
cheese - BAD
Rinsed face in water. Showered avoiding face - not easy!
Fruit salad with ginger and a bit of yogurt
Started Caveman Regime today after having spent most f the day reading thrugh the thread.
I must confess to not being keen on Dan's method n disrespect intended, or to antibotics or ther uch pills. Having tried antibotics with some degree of success I realised, as most users do, that once I stop taking the pills, the acne returns.
Apart from antibiotics, I have tried a great deal of methods. By far the most helpful was toquit smoking, which I did over a year ago. My hope - foolishly - was that my acne was linked to tabacco.
Well, after trying ginger, garlic, and all sort of herbal alternatives, I have decided to try the caveman regime. Im not 100% hopeful cause I think my acne is hormonal-based, but I have learnt to ease the effects by diet and exercise.
Junk food is a big no-no. As is dairy products and soft drinks.
So, mumblings aside, I step into the Caveman Regime.
Two medium-size spots on right side of nose. Two fading spots in almost mirror position to the left. Forehead has a few small whiteheads. One very small whitehead on left-side of chin.
Overall, not bad by my standards but very poor by the norm.
Sea salt soak on spots but no wash since the morning. Just a splash of water at about three o'clock to ease my oily skin.
Now, feeling a little greasy. Feeling good about this. Seems a logical approach and have done similar with hair - not washing for a month to bring about the natural oils.
Please Lord, let this work.
