  1. If you have been damaging your skin with harsh products for years you can not expect it to heal within a few months. I quit bp for a few months before I stop washing my face with the cleanser, so your recovery time will likely be more than 2 months, but seriously stick with it. Like I said, I have been able to use my hands to gently massage any dead skin away when washing my face without breakouts,so try that.
  2. So this is my two month update(1 month update on pg 14). Results have remained very positive. I now am basically acne free with the occasional zit(I call them zit because its one and these are scattered to one every 1-2 week). I continue to avoid using any products on my face. When I do get a zit, I apply a bit of aloe vera gel to help speed up the healing process. All that really remains of my acne days are a few faint scars. I have continue my healthy diet, although I have eaten alot more can
  3. I shower everyday,but don't wash my hair everyday(every 2-3 days). When I do wash my hair, I do let the water gently wash my face. I normally splash my face again afterward to wash any shampoo residue.
  4. Well I am on about 2 months and for the most part the flaky skin has gone away. There are still some small areas that it still appears, near mouth since I have to wash mouth after eating/brushing teeth so the oil gets washed away(but the flakiness if any is really not noticeable). Improvement of my skin in these two months have been substantial. Stick to it.
  5. Although I will make a proper update at the 2 month mark( I made a long post a while back on this thread) , I have continue to see improvement with avoiding using any kind of chemicals on my face. Just H20! I stop using aloe vera and vitamin e oil as well. Also not to encourage people to stop eating healthy, but I recently started eating again foods I have been avoiding(caffeine,candy,dairy) and my results are still good. I still eat healthy, but now know I can treat myself without repercussions
  6. ahh you should have just used water to cleanse...... Stick to it and use only water if you need to clean your face.
  7. Arthur: 1) I dont see how it would make it worst,but taking too much antibiotics is never good. 2) I always splash my face with cool water if I sweat. I normally work out on the 2nd/3rd day of not washing my face so that I can do the normally cleansing when my body is covered in sweat from exercise. 3) I haven't, but not applying cleansers/body wash to that area may help.
  8. Yes I know,but even that is nothing compare to most cleanser. I am sure using that water to cleanse is better then letting dirt,oil,and dead skin build up.....
  9. Well I believe that its not the water that does harm,but any kind of harsh chemicals you use on it(ie my cleanser). Water itself is cleansing enough. I personally wouldn't recommend not washing yourself for that long. Just no cleanser and use cool water. Exercise and changing your diet like I did may help alot too plus zinc(I take 25mg a day with food)/ and omega3 oils(fish/flaxseed). Try an apple a day for fruit and added fiber.
  10. I did not experience any flaking really since I did wash my face with water once a day to get rid of any dead skin along with the aloe vera gel/vitamin e oil that didn't get absorbed. About two weeks into it, I would use a aspirin mask once a week to exfoliate my skin of any lingering dead skin. It worked out well enough.
  11. Well I wanted to let people know about the success I am having with a soft-core version of this. Some background information. I found this post after thinking about why I still had acne even after making many positive health changes to my life. Reducing sugar, caffeine, and dairy intake along with eating more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains plus supplements of fish/flaxseed oil(for omega 3) and zinc( I avoid other supplements and try to get it through whole foods) had helped reduce my ac
  12. Does lotion worsens acne or Pityrosporum Folliculitis? My skin is mildly dry and I keep seeing these lotions that keep saying that they will renew skin and help even skin tone. I have scars from acne/PF and was hoping that these lotions will help fade these scars. Any help is appreciated.
  13. Mandelic acid? I might give it a try. My PF has been in this "remission" for quite some time(maybe a year), so I'm hoping its gone and I can start treating the marks it left behind.
  14. Hi everyone, Im 20 and have suffered from Pityrosporum Folliculitis(almost certain its PF,know its not acne) for most of my life. A few years ago the PF got better(its basically gone with no new bumps),but left behind alot(very noticeable) of small red/brown dots on the outside of my arms and on my buttocks.I am new to this forum and was hoping the experienced mind on here can help me. A user on here says that aspirin mask has helped remove the dots left behind by PF. Has anyone else used aspi
