  1. Hi everyone. I am new to the regimen and I am dead set on following it until I see results. I am just so frustrated with my acne and everything I have done so far seems to have done absolutely nothing. I am REALLY hoping this will work! My question is how does chlorine affect your skin? I am a competitive swimmer so I spend a good 2-3 hours in the pool every day. I am assuming this isn't doing wonders for my skin, but I am curious to know the extent of the damage it may be doing. If it is d
  2. So I started the almost caveman-regime and have been improving constantly without any new breakouts over the week. I've been wondering why this treatment has been working...and I've come to a conclusion. It's my tap water. We have a water softener, but the tap water at my house still dries out my skin and hair. Doing research, I've found that many houses have terribly heavy-metal ridden tap-water and chlorine. The chlorine is necessary to keep the water clean, but must be filtered out via the ho
  3. For those of you taking the probiotic approach to acne/health (which is such a great approach), have you considered how the probiotics interact with the various chemicals added to your water supply? This is something i've only recently thought about, and it may well have already been covered in a previous thread. If not though, it is something you really need to consider. Chlorine, along with the various other contaminates found in treated water supplies, kills friendly bacteria. And i
  4. Hi all, I am a swimmer in high school that just started training for the new season. I swim 3 hours per day, of distances upwards of 7,000 yards. It's a very nice facility with very clean, chlorinated water. Because of this, I'm assuming soaking in chlorine water for 3 hours a day helps a lot with killing all the bacteria in my pores. Dry skin isn't a huge problem because I have some good moisturizers. What I'm wondering is, I have 2 acne gels at home: Epiduo(BP and adapalene), and Ziana(.02
  5. What products should I be using with epiduo? I just started taking solodyn, idk if it's working or not. But hopefully after a month passes I'll see results. But with epiduo what cleanser should I use? I heard that it dries out the skin, what moisturizer should I use? Also, I have oily skin, and moderate acne. At my school we have to take aquatics class. So I have to swim everyday. Will the epiduo and the chlorine irritate my face? I wouldn't mind going to the doctors to ask for a note, I
