Woah, I can't believe I've been doing epiduo for 62 days - at least I think I have, maybe I've counted wrong.. anyway, get ready for super positive update!
For maybe the last week or so, I've seen a huge improvement in my skin - before it was gradually getting clearer, but still with new, large spots every day in my cheek and jaw areas. But in the last week, those spots have become much smaller and less frequent, and I no longer have horrible itching or random swelling on my face. Every morning when I wake up after applying the epiduo the night before, I can see the red marks and dry, flaky blemishes fading and falling away, and my skin is now the softest it's ever been (since I was a child I guess!). I still have a few dark marks, but I can see that they're fading already, and the surface of my skin is totally smooth. And the lack of big, painful spots on my cheeks and jaws means I've been able to just keep my fingers away from my face and let it heal, which has definitely helped a lot!
I'll upload pics when I can, but for now I just wanted to record how confident and happy I feel with my skin - I even went clubbing last night and didn't even feel the need to wear makeup, because my skin looked softer and healthier without it! It's been hard being patient with the treatment, and there were definiely times when I thought that the epiduo just wasn't doing anything to help me, but combined with the doxycycline I've had amazing results - if someone had told me when this started that in 62 days I'd be the happiest I've ever been with my skin, I wouldn't have believed them, but here I am
I hope you guys are feeling great, regardless of how your skin looks today!
