water only

Guest beccaboo00

i know alot of people have tried this but no one really kept with the posts and let people know the results.

i use water with a washcloth in the morning in my shower and a night.

with the wash cloth it doesnt leave my skin flaky like others have said and i use a quarter sized amount of olive oil day and night as a moisturizer with is great for me at keeping my cysts minimal (not as many pop up as before).

ive only been doing this for 4 days now and have only had one pimple and my scars and scabs (i pick sometimes) have healed quicker than before.

any one else doing this as of now?

i havent broken out any more with olive oil it does seem to lessen my cysts though.

i just rub it on like any other lotion it never seems to look too oily on me maybe take a piece of toilet paper and dab your face if you ever use it that takes away some of the shine.

did you break out ever since starting the water only or has your skin just cleared?

so far i only have 3 pimple that came up and i popped 2 and now they're hardly noticeable but alot of people said they either broke out so bad or their skin just cleared with no new break outs.

i do use mario badescu as spot treatments idk if that is making me not 100% clear because im still using chemicals and not totally natural. what do you think

ya thankfully it didnt make me worse.

i just press the opening on my palm and tip it upside down and it leaves like a quarter sized circle and thats all i use and yes i apply to dry skin.

i break out less now with the water only but i think i will try without the spot treatments hopefully itll be fine and clear me up.

i also have a bad habit of picking which is hard to stop and i want to stop so i can actually see how this regimin will work.

im dealing with 4 scars on my right cheek and the 3 pimples were on that cheek as well so its kind of bad.

good idea.

hopefully that works for you. over my scarred areas i massage it pretty rough and they seem to disappear faster because when i massage it lifts layers of skin up and by the next day i can just peel it off so i dont need to exfoliate.

ya i use washcloth morning and night but i only wipe it softly in the morning and a little rough at night because i wear makeup.

i dont think using it has increased acne for me but i think it might be slowing the healing process of current pimples because im irritating them

massaging rough has actually gotten rid of some small pimples i had.

ya thats true but not with an actual exfoliating scrub.

ya when i remove makeup with olive oil my face feels really dirty after and i cant get all the extra oil off my skin.

that sounds good too the less irritation the better

An external solution will not fix an internal problem.

Water only may work if topicals are causing irritation and acne. But for the most part, an internal solution is necessary
