Day 57

Vanessa P


I have decided to change my routine once again. This should be the last time I change my mind!

So I overestimated my ability to stop wearing makeup. After wearing makeup for two weeks and actually feeling pretty, going these past two days with no makeup was a serious stab at my confidence. I got pretty bummed out last night, drank a bunch of wine and binged on steak and chocolate. I know, weird. 

So I decided makeup is going to have to stay in the routine. I found this website where you can copy and paste the ingredients list of your makeup and it will tell you which ingredients are comedogenic. (Here's the link: http://acnemantra.com/comedogenic-ingredients/) I put in all the ingredients of the foundations I had used in the past and they ALL had comedogenic (pore-clogging) ingredients!! So I went through a bunch of different foundations ingredients list online and finally found a foundation that had NO comedogenic ingredients: Physician's Formula Organic Wear BB Cream. I'll start wearing it tomorrow and see how it goes! 

I also am putting masks into my regimen (a dead sea/algae mask, a charcoal and coconut mask, a cucumber and aloe mask) and adding acne.org's AHA+ cream into my moisturizer at night. 

Tbh the only time I feel acne form is when I'm wearing makeup, which is why the caveman regimen was working so well for me. So maybe all along my comedogenic makeup was the issue (although I KNOW dairy was a culprit too). So let's see if this switch and this regimen works for me!

(This definitely is no longer a caveman regimen! I'm basically logging this as my own way of tracking data, so sorry for anyone who was following with the intention of seeing how the caveman regimen worked!)
