  1. The key is to use a topical like BP at least once every other day in order to avoid the build up of dead skin. You can also exfoliate with a BHA or AHA once every 3 or 4 days if you find that you build up too much dead skin.
  2. Actually, my ex-wife used to use it to remove makeup without water. She just rubbed it in and tissued it off and it worked fine. The nice thing is that when you use cetaphil without water, your face doesn't feel as oily so you don't feel like you have as much "grime" on your face at the end of the day. I mean, really, how dirty can your face get in one day besides the oil? ←
  3. Wow, what a blast from the past. I am the guy who started the link from Feb of 2004 that cartman posted. I check these boards every few days, but haven't posted forever. Anyway, I'm still using the "no water" method with Cetahil gentle skin cleanser. It has been working great. I use Dan's BP gel once per day at night, too. My skin looks great and I have no complaints. I still find myself on these message boards because they were such a good support for me when I was going through the wor
  4. ACNE BRIEFS VOL. 1 NO. 2 PUBLISHED UNDER AN UNRESTICTED EDUCATIONAL GRANT FROM GALDERMA COMBINATION THERAPY IS THE BEST APPROACH FOR MILD TO MODERATE ACNE In this issue of Acne Briefs, Gary M. White, MD, chief of dermatology at Kaiser Permanente in San Diego, shares his experience treating acne with what he calls the "two pillars of conventional therapy": a comedolytic agent to open the pores and an antimicrobial to kill the bacterium Propionibacterium acnes, which infects the follicles

  6. malia: I do still get oily, but nothing like it was before. I mean the oil production has been cut down by 75%. Things are still going well for me on this regimen. I'm using BP every other night just as a precaution.
  7. RevolutionIsMyName: You don't necessarily have to avoid water altogether (i.e., steam from shower, etc). I think the idea is to not saturate your face in water if possible.
  8. Circle: I've been using an electric shaver ever since I began this "no water" routine. There is someone on the other board who has been shaving with water as normal but using Cetaphil after his face is dry and it seems to be working okay for him.
  9. Name of my dermatologist is Dr. Swinyer in Salt Lake City, Utah.
  10. People on the other board (Healthboards) have been trying this with good success. I'm not trying to push it on anyone, only sharing what is working for me. Cheers! Slick
  11. hatch: I hate to disagree with you, but even if you washed only with warm water, you would be reducing the bacteria count on your skin. Granted it won't be to the level that something with triclosan would, but bacteria will still be reduced nonetheless. I'm on about day 11 of this and so far so good. I guess time will tell if all is going to go to hell in a handbasket after the first 2 weeks. Also, you may use whatever topicals you have been using to control the p. acnes. This is only the
  12. My ex-wife used to wash her face with Cetaphil this way and wipe it off with a tissue. Seemed to remove the makeup pretty nicely. I think it's similar to cold creme that you remove with a tissue and that seems to remove makeup pretty easily. I've actually heard that it works better to remove makeup if you use it without water.

  13. Okay, just to give you a history on myself... I'm 33 and have had acne ranging from mild to severe for the past 20 years. I have been struggling with adult acne and have unfortunately not grown out of it. I've been on accutane 3 times. Worked like a charm each time; problem is, the acne came back within about 6-8 months after each treatment. Well, like everyone else here, I've been through every over the counter cleanser known to mankind and have been putting BP, Retin-A, or some topical on m
