Have the people with acne tried showering less?

It's the same idea as not using products on your hair so much, will make you produce less sebum after a while + gives you more healthy bacteria on your skin which protects you from diseases.

I bring this up cause they did a segment on it on german tv (and I'm a good little sheep) and I noticed I have showered maybe once a month in the past year and have almost perfect skin, not even blackheads or those white things near your eyelids like I used to have as a young adult

perhaps it's worth a try?

Broscience much?
Don't believe all the shit you see on TV.

Don't fuck around with acne, just go see a dermatologist.

I messed around for 4 years, thinking each new moisturiser or supplement or whatever was going to be the magic cure.

Went to a derm, did a quick accutane cycle and my skin is better than ever, and all I do is splash my face in the shower and use a small amount of Eucerin moistuser.

Next step: Taking adderal when your grades fall off? Taking E to beat social anxiety?

Showing every day is good, and you should feel bad if you show less than 4 times a week.

However, you do not need to soap and shampoo every single day. Shampooing every single day can dry out and damage your hair, same goes for soaping and skin.

What I do is this: shower 6-7 times a week, shampoo 3, soap whole body 3, soap junk, feet and pits 6-7. I also keep a sponge or loofah to scrub away surface dirt/dead skin without drying my skin out with soap.

My acne dropped off hard when I started doing this.

These examples are shit.

Grades and social life can be fixed by studying/practicing. You can't "practice" your acne away.
>>
>>35172369
Chances are, you'll have acne AND stink. Congrats.

No, but seriously, I know so many people who very evidently shower very rarely and still have fucked up skin. I'd rather smell good.
>>
i dont think its worth it, it doesnt seem "natural" unlike all the other acne prevention fads. and no-poo, no gluten/dairy, fresh sheets and not touching their faces 247 remove acne for 99% of people anyway so i dont see the need for anything more.

sure you can try it but only in extreme cases id say. ive spent a few times 2-3 weeks without washing myself and it only felt like shit. switching to no-poo was way easier

>>35172521
People don't smell bad from not showering, you smell bad from high stress or working at a sewage plant

How were we supposed to interpet it then?

Social life/studying is nothing like an acne problem. One is fixed with chemical treatment, one is fixed with diligence.

Are people taking "no shower" literally itt?

You can still wash your pits. Or face if your boyfriend came on it.

The problem is almost industrial levels of cleanliness which is nothing but another trend of decadent western society. Nazis showered once a week for example.

>>35172739
i think the point of the thread in general is that you dont necessarily have to treat acne by ADDING something, you can treat it by removing instead. true of a lot of things, makes sense that it would be true of acne. acne, especially widespread and/or very severe acne, is not an ancient problem

I thought you were being retarded on purpose so you can feel smart.

I was referring to taking shortcuts with shitty side effects. Expensive ones too)

Not to mention that they are all overkill

How do you not smell? My feet get the worst. And my taint/junk gets pretty gross after I lift.
>>
>>35172856
I don't lift

>>35172856
I just thought of something. Every time I visit my family I do start to stink

This is imo just more proof that it's a high stress lifestyle that causes smell mostly. My family could never in2 tranquility. I'm constantly stressed out when I come to visit.

When I'm alone I don't smell.
