Here we go...

My story is similar to so many users on here, especially those who have tried the caveman regimen, because I have been on everything (antibiotics, topicals, retinoids, Accutane, birth control, BP, medicated cleansers, vitamins, you name it) and NOTHING has worked. Everything works for a little while and then the acne comes back at some point or another. So I guess everything worked but nothing lasted

So here I am, trying to heal myself the au-natural way. Thanks to blogs like Organic Olivia and The Love Vitamin, as well as so many user experiences here, I'm pretty confident and excited to move forward with the next step...the Caveman Regimen. 

So like the blog title says, I'm on Day 7 but I woke up with some tiny little whiteheads around my mouth and chin and freaked out and immediately washed my face and put on some nice chemically boosted facial spray. Ug. SOOOO hopefully writing everyday (or so) will give me some accountability. I'm also trying to cut out dairy/gluten/sugar/hard liquor so I'm hoping for some added accountability there too. 

Up until now, my skin has been clearing up SIGNIFICANTLY. The weird thing is, I never had whiteheads before, my problem was always inflamed cysts. I only have ONE cyst right now (on Day 1 I had 6 cysts) but these tiny whiteheads have popped up. I read some other blogs and other people have had the sam problems, but they did end up going away on their own. I'm going to try and NOT wash and moisturize again because my face is dry and red now and it looked better before I washed it, despite the whiteheads. 

I trust the process!!

Also in an attempt to not eat ice cream before bed, I've been eating frozen mangoes. A little too many frozen mangoes, which might be contributing to my little chin breakout. I'm gonna stop eating those for awhile and see what happens. 

If anyone has done this before and had the same reaction, let me know if you have any tips!
