Here’s the thing: if you don’t want to use anything on your skin, don’t. If you want to only use manuka honey on your skin, do. If you don’t want to wash your face ever, that’s up to you.
The ‘caveman’ regime is the latest thing to hit the press – aided and abetted by reports of certain celebrities who swear they ‘only ever use soap and water’ on their skin and are ‘horrified’ at the thought of washing their faces in the mornings.
Firstly, let’s be clear. Celebrities saying they don’t wash their faces and saying they only use soap and water is not new, some have always said that.
It was utter bollocks then and it is now.
The ‘average’ woman (you and me) have enough pressure on them to be perfect without XYZ celeb saying they don’t work out (lies), they eat ‘everything in sight!’ (lies) and now that they don’t wash their face at all? Bollocks you don’t.
Give me a motherflannel-loving break.
If it was just celebs being arses it wouldn’t be that big of a deal – but there is a whole industry behind this caveman crapola. You can spend $200 of your hard-earned dollars to be shown how not to use any products on your skin.
TWO. HUNDRED. DOLLARS.
Yes, of course you can use too much stuff on your face. I’ve always said do what you have to do for you – whatever that is. But please don’t think that these people have perfect skin without skincare and/or without medical intervention. The jig is up people.
Yes. You PAY to be shown how NOT to use products. I did the math based on the cost of the Caveman regime and how many people they claim have tried and tested their ‘protocols’. Not all the extras they sell, just the basics. $3 million dollars. 3 MILLION DOLLARS from telling people how ‘not’ to use product.
I wish I was joking.
Now go wash your faces.
