Day 38



Hi guys. quick update. 

infection is still present so decided to go on oral antibiotics... should kick it in the butt. Still washing my face with water only, obviously a little longer on areas of infection where antibiotic ointment was on it. Only washed one night (night of day 36) with a small amount of all natural soap but regretted it, skin was dry and tight so I'm definitely still keeping the water only up despite the current ordeal!

I wanted to mention that if you go water only washing for a couple months and don't see results its majorly important to look at your diet. If your acne was due to chemicals/over washing it should do fine and clearup but i you're still getting breakouts look at your diet: if you are pumping your system full of "foods" like dairy, gluten, tons of breads and sugars, it won't help your skin in my opinion cause the organs have to work extra hard to clear it out, which means a lot will probably pass through the skin. I've cut meats out mostly, dairy for a week now as well as sugars wherever I can (except natural sugars like kombucha drinks, dates, fruits, etc..), and I hardly eat bread. Lots of vegetables and fermented foods and healthy fats is key I think. I'll let you know my results as well with this diet but so far along with water only washing I haven't been getting new breakouts on my face (excluding my area of complaint currently of course).

I just wanted to mention this cause I read an interesting blog on here just now about a girl saying she did accutane, it cleared her, but two years later it came back at full force and only cleared up when she went vegan. Tells me these medications are total band aid solutions! Let me know if you have questions about this diet, It sounds overwhelming but just picked up an awesome cookbook that has amazing super easy 15 min recipes for vegans (Oh She Glows Everyday Cookbook). Delicious, yummy, fills you up, makes your skin smile :)

peace and love all
