I made it!
Wow, I manage to go 30 days without washing my face. And I still haven't, today being day 33. :D
I feel like my skin has changed a lot in these last three days. I was going to update you exactly on the 30 day mark, but my skin had a couple breakouts and was a bit red from exfoliating the dead skin off. The breakouts weren't from exfoliating, it was from picking. But, I haven't pick at my face since, and my skin has cleared most of those few breakouts. And my face was just a bit red from exfoliating that dead skin mask off, which felt like the most wonderful thing to do!
Okay, I'm going to put a few picture in here to show how it looked, dead skin mask and all, after 30 days.
|You can see my skin flaking from the dead skin.|
|You can see the couple breakouts I had.|
|My skin didn't look too bad!|
So overall, it was super flaky, and a bit red around the breakouts I had. I first tried to exfoliate my skin with these exfoliating cotton rounds. I tried it dry first, then I wet it. It didn't exfoliate my dead skin mask off though. So I just took my fingers and rubbed back and forth on my skin to exfoliate the dead skin off. It was pretty gross, but my skin underneath felt so smooth! My skin didn't feel dry, or oily. It felt perfectly balanced.
My skin is still flaking a little, but from what I've read eventually your skin will balance itself and stop flaking.
This is what my skin looks like today!
|I have a couple minor breakouts.|
|Still some flaking.|
|Scaring is slowly but surely going away!|
The major difference I can tell is that my skin tone is much more even, and it isn't very red like it was before. My breakouts are fewer and fewer. If I do get a pimple, it's generally pretty small. So overall, I will definitely continue with this! My skin doesn't get irritated anymore, it's so much quicker not having to wash my face. I feel so much more free not having to wash my face! My skin isn't prefect yet, but I'm hoping it will just keep on improving. It's hard to tell a huge difference from pictures, but I can definitely tell a difference in my skin. If you've managed to clear your skin up a lot, but it still isn't quite there, I would recommend you try this! You really have nothing to lose, and it seriously is so great to be so free! Haha, I really love it!
I hope my experiment has helped you determine if you want to give this a try. Let me know if you do try it or if you already have!
