i personally dont support caveman regimen,as i had told u.
although many loves it..for they say it doesnt hinder with the natural barrier.
but as far as i know,if u r healthy the barrier makes and remakes itself continuously.
letting dirt and sebum clog pores for the sake 'BARRIER' which can obviously be replenishes is not a great idea to ME.
removal of upper dead cell layers seems important to me.
technically acne is said to be caused by (sebum+ debris - dead cells + diet + P.acnes) so i work things out myself.
and let me tell u many have seen negative results from caveman methods.so u will have to decide for YOURSELF.what suits u and what doesnt!
people keep blaming dermas and am sure they have their own reasons.
but for some reason i feel they aint crazy people,they are learnt and know the science.
i will not deny that jumping on accutane or giving crazy prescriptions for own benefits or refusing diet-acne relation r not good.
but not all dermas are like that.
personally my derma had asked me to avoid oily/spicy food for my acne.
physical exfoliation is likely to spread the microbes and irritate skin.do chemical exfoliators can be used like bha or aha washes but of low%.
(1% or less if u have sensitive skin).
diet plays role.
dont eat HEALTHY.
eat what suits YOU.
keep track of ur food and diet.and over all regimen.
did u do anything of late other than not wash ur face?
also,do u think its due to insulin spike or hormones?
