The End of The Caveman Regimen

Well I know I said I was gonna hold out a little longer with it, but my face has just completely lost itself to acne. Just of recently it started to breakout uncontrollably and my face literally looks like a piece of salami. While I was doing this regimen my skin never really got better at least in terms of the way it looked, but the way it felt on this regimen was good. It never felt overly dry and irritated, it never itched and it never got too oily, so these were the reasons I really liked it up until now. I don’t really know what caused my skin to change course so drastically, but my only guess is maybe because I started using some new supplements for weightlifting like creatine and whey protein rather than casein protein (which is what I usually would drink). Other than those two things I have no idea what caused my skin to change like this.

So a few days ago I decided to start washing it with Cetaphil every morning and night, and put on a very light moisturizer on during the day. If any have used Cetaphil then you know just how gentle it is, so I don’t feel so bad about ditching the regimen for it because it is very gentle. I also started shaving twice a week just because my skin was always feeling really gross up until I shaved it when I was only doing it once a week. Also when I when I was doing the caveman regimen I wasn’t washing my face after workouts, but now that I am my skin feels a lot better!

So I just wanted to update you guys on that, I know I hadn’t in a while. I’ll let you know if I find something new to try as soon as I get it. Also if you have any recommendations for things I can try or any feedback it would be greatly appreciated!
