  1. 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
  2. Caution: This Water Only regime is suspended from Day14, because I don't have strong believe in "clearing acne" just by water : P Start from 14/04/2015, I have been using Adapalene0.1% everynight, taking medocycline 250mg x2 also Lysozyme 30mg x1 every day and night. Here's the new Adapalene post: but I would still use only water after I'm cured. Background: I'm a guy aged 23 with moderate acne. Before 21 had no acne and I used no products. But right after 21, I star
  3. I've been researching this all night. And it seems promising. But I'm pretty scared to try it. I've had mild to mild-moderate acne since I was 13/14. I'm 18 now. And my acne right now is probably the worst it's ever been. And I'm starting to notice a pattern... Lately I've tried so many different products on my face. Proactiv (cringe) being one of them. I'm thinking I stripped my skin, and made it dependent on chemicals. At least, from these threads on using no acne medications, this is what I
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Hi, just gonna give you guys a short intro of my acne story. Started to getting mild acne when i was 17 ish years old (i'm 23 now). It wasn't that much but my self -confidence hit the rock bottom when i had a few spots. When I was 20 I got better self-confidence and didn't care that much anymore but I still looked in the mirror every morning and evning for a new pimple. I haven't tried that many acne-products but a lot of cleansers-toners-moisturizer, but I have tried Acne.orgs regimen but my sk

    No water experiment!

    So during a lazy period, I decided to try the “no water” thing. I’m not referring to the caveman regimen, which FYI, did my skin no favours. I mean using other products to clean my face. So my skin is insanely combination. As in it’s greasy AND dry at the same time (Wtf??!), blackheads, former acne scars, whiteheads, cysts, you get the idea. In the beginning I thought I’d use face washes. Dove Soap, acne washes, you name it. I figured, if it dries out my skin, it’ll dry out my spots right? Wrong
  8. I've been on the Caveman Regimen for 9 day and I'm so tempted to quit! I have huge whiteheads covering my cheeks that are drying up and going this weird greenish colour and it's disgusting, even though they are healing quicker. I have dead skin build (which I know is normal). I just want to quit and go to using just water because I hate going to school like this! Please help!
  9. Hello everyone, this is my first ever post Basically, I started the extreme caveman regimen (nothing on my face) a week ago and within the first couple days, my skin seemed to be improving. But now, I'm breaking out with whiteheads everywhere and it's awful! Is it just my skin purging? My pimples are healing faster but my skin looks gross I also have started to get the dead skin mask and was wondering how long I have to wait until I can exfoliate it off. What were you experiences on the ex
