  1. It won't do anything. They are different, but I smoke weed like 4 times a week and absolutely nothing has happened, except THE MUNCHIES.
  2. Doing nothing (but being healthy with diet and exercise) are the best things I have ever done. It's absolutely incredible how much my complexion has changed in 8 days, especially the redness. My face used to be beet red after showers and even worse after shaving, now it looks.......normal. I can't wait to see how I look in a few more weeks. With the results I've seen so far I'm pretty sure that I will be 100% clear with non-irritated and red skin. I shouldn't say 100% clear though because I on
  3. What do you mean by wash? Are you just splashing water on your face or are you using a cleanser? If you are using a cleanser I would really stop immediately.
  4. I do too. I don't even have acne but will usually have 2-3 pimples on my face, but my biggest problem was redness after showers (even if they were lukewarm) or redness after shaving. I'm on day 6 or 7 right now and "doing nothing" is working miracles. I have 2 pimples on my face that are fading fast and will probably disappear by tomorrow and the redness after my shower was non-existent, hell even my shave caused no redness. Not to mention the fact that I have eaten tons of candy/chocolate the p
  5. I totally disagree on the first point. The biggest problem with the water people are splashing on their face are the hard minerals and chemicals like chlorine that are often present in tap water. I would say sweating HELPS this regimen substantially. Firstly, exercise is absolutely incredible for your body (even skin) especially running, there is absolutely no excuse not to run or do some type of work out. Secondly, that doesn't really make any sense because from what I can see (and this is in
  6. I have extremely mild acne (I usually have around 3-4 pimples on my entire face at any time and often less) and I truly think that this is the way to finally get rid of all my blemishes. My face definitely suffers from being irritated and red very often which I attribute to topics stripping my face of everything it needs. From now on I'm going to stop worrying about my face and simply take a shower in the morning and at night before bed and simply splash water on my face. My biggest concern
  7. From what I have seen many people say that your sebaceous glands mature starting from your cheeks and end up maturing last around your chin/lip area. To me this sort of makes sense, because while I don't really have acne (I wouldn't call 2-3 zits acne) they are ALWAYS always around that specific area. And it is a constant theme I have noticed, the people with very very mild acne tend to have just a few zits in that area. I would say you should be using the gentlest products possible on your fac
  8. I don't really have "acne" but I am prone to breakouts of 2-3 zits from time to time around the chin area especially. I have heard that your sebaceous glands mature from your cheeks and other parts of your face and the last ones to mature are usually around your chin, so hopefully my face will be entirely clear within a few months. The "regimen" has worked very well for me thus far. I wash with Cetaphil twice daily and I use 2.5% "On the spot" BP only at night, because I have very sensitive ski
  9. My cleansing is very gentle since I use Cetaphil and wash only with my finger-tips with luke-warm water twice a day. Unfortunately I had been getting in the habit of using St. Ives Apricot Scrub almost 1-2 times a week on average, but I will stop using this product because it can be somewhat irritating. I will try out some moisturizer soon, and thanks for the recommendations. And yes, 1-2 hours after my shower the redness has faded completely.
  10. I actually have exactly the same symptoms. I have NEVER used a moisturizer for any significant period of time, and I was wondering whether or not getting one would begin to battle the post-shower or post-cleansing redness.
  11. When you said "I can't even use soap on my skin- just water" are you talking about the skin on your face? Plain bar soap is probably one of the absolute WORSE things you could possibly wash your face with. And sticking with something as gentle as a Cetaphil isn't going to cause the chemicals in it to destroy your acid mantle and aggravate acne, it just isn't that type of cleanser and trust me; I have the most sensitive skin I have ever seen.
  12. My skin is officially 100% clear now besides one very small fading red mark near my upper lip. I have found the BEST regimen (for me at least) was little to no exfoliation and if I did exfoliate it was incredibly gentle. Normally, I wake up and take a shower and wash with Cetaphil. And then simply rinse my face with water at night. About once a week or once every 1.5 weeks, I will usually use St. Ives Apricot Scrub. I know this product probably isn't the best scrub exfoliant which is why I'm go
  13. Your method isn't stupid at all. In fact, I pretty much followed the same exact steps to achieve decent and clear skin. I am really into rock climbing so I have been trying to eat healthy (fruits, veggies, whole grains, brown rice, chicken, fish, and so on). I also drink an obscene amount of water, probably 1.5-2 gallons a day. In my mind, a lifestyle change is the only thing that can truly get rid of acne (unfortunately there are still some people who will have acne). I eat well, sleep really
