Question Ditching all the meds

Hey! I was just wondering if anyone just got frustrated with all the topicals and oral antibiotics and just started using nothing!~ I couldnt remember the last time I went to bed without some kind of acne remedy on my face! It feels so awkard to not put something on my face..I feel like Im not helping..I just started this so i will keep u updated if I get worse..but I was just thinking that if I let my skin breathe for a couple of weeks..maybe I dont even have bad skin anymore..but since I mess with all these meds that cause breakouts..my skin never clears! Any comments??

I got fed up with all my prescribed medications too. At the end of December I weaned myself off my antibiotics with no noticeable bad side effects, and in the past month I stopped with both my topicals too. Currently I am using Cetaphil to wash, then applying CP serum twice a day and jojoba oil at night. This seems to be working wonders. Unfortunately, before I started this routine, I did a lot of damage because I couldn't keep my hands off my face. I'm still waiting for all those marks to heal, but I haven't had any new breakouts since! I'm keeping my fingers crossed...
