As an experiment, I decided to stop using all products with the reasoning that my body has so many systems dedicated to keeping my skin in balance. I figured that washing it with soap was initiating a response from my system.

So, I let body do all the work. I only wash with water. I wash my hair with shampoo every 3 days so that people don't think I'm dirty or anything. I make sure I rinse it so as to get as little shampoo on my face as possible.

This was without a doubt the best move I ever made. I now rarely get a pimple and when I do it's only 1 at time, instead of 7 or 10. My skin is never dry.

Just thought I'd share. Try it for 2 months and get back to us with results so that maybe we can see if it's just me.

"Don't interfere with what your body has done so well for tens of thousands of years" is my thinking.

PS: I tried everything before. Washing, washing with special stuff, BP, anti-biotics.
