TikTok creator Candice, who says she has suffered from acne since she was 15, decided to move away from face wash, opting instead to 'clean' her face with a dry brush instead

You can ditch fancy face washes and serums because all you need is water, according to one woman.

TiKTok creator Candice, who says she has suffered from acne since she was 15, decided to move away from face wash, opting instead to ‘clean’ her face with a dry brush.

Candice, who lives in the U.S., uses her page to promote ‘all things non-toxic’ and  swears that less is more when it comes to curing her acne.

Rather than using a multi-step routine with numerous products, Candice now just uses a dry brush and water to clean her face – claiming it has worked wonders and cleared up her skin.

‘It’s been one year since I washed my face and it’s healed my skin,’ she said in the clip posted online.

Candice said she has been plagued by troublesome skin since she was a teen - and the only thing that has cured it was stripping back her skincare routine

Candice also shared photos showing red pimples along her jawline before she started dry brushing, and ones after where her skin looks clearer.

According to Candice, people have ‘over complicated’ their skincare routines with ‘harsh chemicals and hormone disruptive ingredients.’

Candice explained she removed ‘dry and oily’ patches by using a dry brush and dropped face wash from her skincare routine.

‘I was always convinced that this, like, elaborate long skincare routine and all these fancy products was what was going to cure my acne and heal my skin,’ she shared in the now-viral TikTok, which has been viewed more than six million times.

However, Candice said her complicated skincare routine was doing the ‘opposite’ for her skin.

‘In fact, cleansing my skin every day, morning and night, was actually destroying my skin’s moisture barrier,’ she shared.

Instead, Candice has opted for washing her face with warm water in the evening to cleanse it and using a dry brush in the morning to exfoliate.

‘Let’s go back to the basics and let our body heal itself,’ she encouraged, alongside the clip. 

When removing makeup, Candice revealed that she uses animal fat – usually beef tallow – or coconut oil if she needs a deeper cleanse.

The content creator admitted that many people struggled with the idea of only using water to wash her face, due to the many products available, perceiving it as ‘dirty.’ 

‘So let’s normalize not washing your face every day and using single, real ingredient products to moisturize – and that’s it,’ she encouraged.

Candice said she found it ‘sad’ that the beauty industry was always trying to push for people to constantly purchase more products.

‘There is so much junk on the market,’ she complained.  

‘We don’t realize the simplicity and healing ability of in the most basic things,’ she continued.

Users flocked to the comments section of the video, many with differing opinions about what products have affected their skin.

‘I only wash at night because of this!!’ one user gushed.

‘Yes water to wash the face, beef tallow to moisturize. Skin is glowing and clear. When I use face wash, I immediately break out,’ another agreed.

Others said they didn’t have the same experience when they stopped using products and their skin broke out.

‘I’m the exact opposite. Finding a good cleanser and using simple skincare products has slowly healed my VERY sensitive skin (it’s so bad that when I sweat my face burns),’ one user shared.

‘This is the complete opposite for me. I have hormonal acne and never used to wash my face. Now I use Winlevi, Trentinoin and wash m/n & im clearing up,’ another chimed in.

According to dermatologists,  skin cycling is often recommended by dermatologists and estheticians, which gives the skin time to repair, hydrate and treat certain concerns.

For example, it could involve using an exfoliating acid on night one, a retinol on the second, and three and four may be dedicated to hydration to ‘help the skin recover,’ celebrity esthetician Renée Rouleau explained. 

‘I’m a fan of this trend because it gives people a good blueprint for how to build a good skincare routine,’ Rouleau told DailyMail.com.

‘As you get used to this base routine, you can start to adjust it based on your own needs and tolerance (for example, doing two nights of retinol or only taking one recovery day). I do think skin cycling is actually beneficial for people’s skin and can be applied long-term.’
