  1. If you haven't heard of of the 'Caveman regimen, you're not stuck in the dark ages. It's yet another half-baked idea at to eliminate acne What they mean by "caveman" is keep your face dirty... don't wash it... don't use chemicals... just let it be. You know what cavemen did before cleansers and before acne Now, I couldn't agree more with this theory. After all cleansers and a most other acne products destroy your skin's microbiome which can make acne worse. Once you mess with you
  2. So on my Day 5 blog post, I said that I had been juice fasting for two weeks for spiritual reasons and then switched over to eating just fruits and vegetables. But for whatever reason, I can't do partial fasts. I mean I can DO them, but I get so spiritually distracted by eating that it feels like a waste. I end up constantly thinking about what I can and can't eat instead of thinking about connecting with God and my own spirit. So I've decided to go back to juice fasting until March 16th, and th
  3. This is the first time in a looooooooooong time that I've woken up every day for a week straight excited to look in the mirror! Every day I can see my active pimples getting smaller, my hyperpigmentation getting lighter, and no new pimples forming!!! *does a little dance* The saving grace of this diet has been avocados w/ Frank's hot sauce on top. I initially wasn't going to eat spices but I LOVE Frank's and had to try it - it hasn't caused me to break out so I'm keeping it in my diet. But ser
  4. No changes and no new pimples. Really nice skin tone! Pimples are rapidly clearing up and so are scars! I'm hoping not to jinx it since I haven't had a bad day yet. I'm also hoping I don't get the dreaded dead skin layer! bleh. Anyways one nice thing is I no longer feel oily or dirty. My face feels really nice!! --------------------EDIT okay so it's now nighttime and I have a few new pimples...hope they go away quickly but they are tiny
  5. Okay so basically you do exactly what the regimen is called. You act like a caveman. You let nothing (NOTHING) touch your face. Not even water. You may be thinking ewww gross but when you look at more information, you will see the theory behind the regimen. If you want a TON of information, check out a page called the love vitamin. Anyways have you ever felt like whenever you start using a new cleanser or face wags or whatever, that your acne either stays the same or gets worse!!??? I have! Okay
  6. Hi guys! I'm new here and this is my first post so go easy on me! So basically I'm 16 and have had moderate acne for nearly two years now. I have been to the doctor and they prescribed differin and duac once daily which didn't really help a whole lot especially as I have oily skin and when I apply these overnight they can't dry my skin because of how oily it gets. Having said that they still keep the acne at bay reasonably well. (I also used a Nivea charcoal face wash morning and night). My oi
  7. Hello all. Feel free to skip all this and just read my log, but I thought I would start with a bit about me and my acne story, as I have often found other peoples stories helpful on this site! My Story I have been keeping a log of my experiences with my skin on my computer, but as a long time lurker on this website I have decided to make my story public in the hopes of getting some understanding, and maybe even helping someone in a similar situation. I am a 23 year old female who has
  8. I finished accutane in early April (in two weeks it will be 7 months after my course). Also, it's been 8 months into my water only regimen. The only thing I do is using shaving cream when I'm shaving. Recently, I bought an exfoliator (Neutrogena) because I was having some problems with dead skin and whiteheads (2). I never ever get pimples since I've finished accutane. BUT, I've bought the cleanser in the same line as the exfoliator from Neutrogena, because I still have red marks and since the c
  9. So today I started the caveman regimen, day 1. Background: I'm 14 and I've had bad skin for about 3 years, it worsened when I started using tap water to wash my face. my acne is light to moderate and I suffer from it mainly on the centre of my face, I get whiteheads and blackheads on my forehead and nose, I also get cystic acne on my chin.. I often pick at my skin which just makes it worse and harder to cover. I have oily skin which is either because of hormones, or from the products I have use
  10. Hello, everyone! I have been a long time lurker here and I finally registered into this account because I wanted to talk about my experience with the caveman regimen. It's been a week and I plan on updating it. To start of, I am a 23-year-old female who has suffered from mild-moderate acne since I was 16. My skin is sensitive and oily. I decided to try the caveman regimen because when I moved into the dorm a week ago, my skin started to get extremely irritated despite having used the products fo
  11. Hey guys, I've been lurking here for well over 6 months now and finally decided to post. Starting off, I've tried just about everything since the age of 13 when I first started breaking out: -ortho tricyclin -numerous antibiotics -some other acne pills I forgot the names of -tons of topicals including: epiduo, retin a, clyndamycin, adapalene, tretinoin (for chest + back), etc -proactiv, neutrogena, oxy, basically anything you can find in the store that claims to "work" After realizing
  12. So it's been two weeks since I posted on here! Here's the update: So my first trigger food once I started reintroducing foods back into my diet was eggs. I added grains and my skin was fine. Then I added chicken - another breakout. Then red meat - another breakout. Then dairy - another breakout. (I did let my skin breathe in between adding foods for a few days so I knew it was the food and not a residual breakout from a previous food) I will say that the breakouts were not bad, just whiteh
  13. I am feeling so good about the caveman regimen this time around. Every time I look in the mirror, I feel like my skin is looking better and better! No new breakouts, and the two spots I have on the left side of my mouth are getting smaller (well, the one is coming to head so it's further along in its healing process). AND it looks like my scars are fading more quickly (but it's hard to tell). All in all, I am VERY optimistic. My diet is still just fruits and veggies, nothing else. I real
  14. Here we go... My story is similar to so many users on here, especially those who have tried the caveman regimen, because I have been on everything (antibiotics, topicals, retinoids, Accutane, birth control, BP, medicated cleansers, vitamins, you name it) and NOTHING has worked. Everything works for a little while and then the acne comes back at some point or another. So I guess everything worked but nothing lasted. So here I am, trying to heal myself the au-natural way. Thanks to blogs like
  15. I started this regimen 4 days ago and since then I have kept a quite detailed diary. I will write here the first 4 days and then start posting every day or every other day, based on the changes I will be observing. First things first, my skin is a combination of oily skin on my T-zone and normal (neither oily, nor dry) skin on my cheeks. My most prone to breakouts areas are my cheeks and once in a blue moon, my jawline or around my eyebrows. At the moment I'm taking 30 mg of zinc, vitamin D3 1
  16. Wow. My skin has improved a lot. Most of my whiteheads have gone. My previous acne is subsiding, and a lot of marks are fading. My oiliness is also balanced. I am happy!
  17. Okay so not much except an oily face! Which I don't mind cause I have had terrible dryness before, also my tone is really Nice and my skin looks healthy. I still have a pimple on my forehead but it came to a head yestersay so I hope it's gone soon! Oh and no new pimples! I'm thinking I'm done with products finally! If my skins not getting worse, why use a product!
  18. Okay so in the morning my face looked alright and it was only slightly oily. No new pimples (YES!!) otherwise, no new changes. At the end of the day, two of my pimples on my cheeks have come to a head and so has a huge pimple on my forehead! I'll update tomorrow!!
  19. Hey! I’m new to this site so I hope that I’ve posted this in the right place. I wanted to hear other people’s experiences with the caveman regimen, as I am 3 weeks in (although I’m using water once a day) and my skin is not doing well at all. A bit of background: I’ve had acne for about 8 years now, ranging from mild to severe. It’s improved slightly from diet changes, but never completely cleared up. Some other things I’ve tried include - MANY masks, cleansers etc, both natural and the on
  20. This will be my Caveman Regimen log. I will never let my face touch any sort of water from this day forward. This is how I got to this conclusion: I have been on Accutane (Claravis) since October. I am going onto my last month. All throughout the treatment I did too much to my face. I should have washed my face the first day that I got the medicine, and then, never after that. I washed 3-4 times a day, and on one day, 8 times (because I was frustrated). I started this regimen on Tuesday
  21. I’m 18, I’ve had acne since middle school however it was never bad and never hurt my self esteem really until my sophomore year of high school. My acne started to become more serious but still wasn’t anything out of the ordinary. I started washing my face and using salicylic acid regularly, my skin would get dry because I never used moisturizer but not flakey or anything and I had virtually no excess oil. The acne didn’t improve so I cleansed more and more harshly, went to the doctor and they ha
  22. I was on caveman, it was the best my skin had ever been. But then I decided to use products just for the fun of it. And my skin slowly but surely got breakouts, more than I had ever had. As the new year came in, I started eating more vegetables and working out and my skin went haywire. When I workout intensely, my skin worsens which is not uncommon so I've stopped and my skin cleared slightly. It's July now and I'm still figuring out what to do. Here's my second go of the caveman, about two yea
  23. I've wanted to try the caveman regimen with no water but I exercise and sweat a lot and I ride a bike so I get dust on sometimes. Is the sweat bad for my acne? And my water has a bit of chlorine so can I wash with bottled water if I have to?
  24. I did not know where to post this as it is my first post as well. I did the caveman regimen for a little over 45 days and although it seemed ok, once I rinsed off the thickest layer of dead skin, hundreds. And I mean hundreds. Of little pimples showed their faces. I feel destroyed. I know some people on this site have and still do suffer from worse acne than me but I went from having one or two occasional pimples to now having a face FULL of acne. Everywhere! I don't even want to leave my house
  25. Hello all! This is my first forum post so I'm going to start with a little bit about my acne. If you want to get right to the caveman regimen just skip ahead! I am a 23 year old female, I have suffered with acne since my teens and have tried everything short of Accutane to clear my skin. Antibiotics, benzoyl peroxide, Dan's Regimen, Retinol, over the counter treatments, apple cider vinegar, manuka honey, you name it. I spend a lot of time googling acne and treatments and I have never reach
