My adult acne cleared with one easy step :D

Recommended Posts


I'm 23 and I'm essentially rid of acne! I barely get pimples now and wish I had tried the method I have now. I have been acne free since January!!

Believe it or not, I got this advice from my new boyfriend and it has worked wonders:

- quit using products and soap on your face

-only rinse your face with water, and only do so at night, after you've worked up a sweat, and in the morning (doesn't matter hot or cold water)

- don't touch your face!!!

If you're like me (23 and tried a crapload of products that never seem to work), try this out, what have you got to lose. I wish I had done it sooner, and I would have had less scarring on my poor cheeks and jaw :doh:

Oh well, here's hoping you guys don't spend a whole lot of money on products that only further aggravate your skin when you can get acne free for free!! :dance:

PS: I have been doing this method since January and my skin has never looked better (at least since I've had acne... :rolleyes: And it doesn't matter what I eat, it doesn't change my much clearer face, so food is not the issue when it comes to acne.

PSS: Do not use ANY acne products while using this method. I tried sneaking in some tea tree oil and bio oil one night, and my bf noticed the next day without even having known I used anything, stating "Your face looks a little red and aggravated today, did you put something on your face?" Then promptly scolding me for having done so haha, damn

Hi there!

congratulations! I've been doing the same thing for ages.

Same thing happened to me, I tried dab a little tree tee oil on one spot I had. Stung! It should be so obvious :doh: . I try a face wash, my face turns red. I know I have sensitive skin, you too by the sounds of it. Others may not have issues with products. On a can't be bothered note splashing water on you face, dry and go is so much better.

hi Tarra

I am so happy this worked for you. I am on this plan also for about 4 days now. My skin tone is so much better and all the sore pimples disappeared. Did you have any dead skin building up?

You know my husband has oily skin too but he hardly ever had a pimple on his face and all he does is just rinse it with water.

I know people do not recommend makeup. I will try though to use mineral powder foundation when I go out and wash it off with water. I don't have to go out a lot now so I hope it won't be a problem. I will use make up remover for mascara.

Good luck to all of you :)

I'd do this too, but I do wear makeup and water isn't enough to wash it off properly. So it's kind of a vicious cycle I guess. :think:
