Here's the story, about a month ago I read this article about a guy who had various skin problems and decided to stop using all soaps, creams etc on his skin with amazingly good results.
Having always had skin problems varying between oily/dry skin, blackheads (sorry!) and when I was younger horrible spots, I thought I'd give this a try.
Results have been incredible, I really wouldn't have believed it, I shower every morning and evening in hot water, pretty much as hot as I can comfortably tolerate and let the water flow for about 8 minutes, only using a flannel over the whole body, paying particular attention to the more obvious areas...I now have no problems with oily/dry skin, my skin seems to have reached a natural ph balance, the blackheads have gone and my whole complexion seems far healthier.
Now the obvious issues about odour, well it doesn't seem to be a problem, I only use a 'natural' deodorant and have not had any comments from anyone about body odour etc (and believe me my work colleagues would have told me!) also the OH says no problem.
