Epiduo Isn't Working!

4 posts in this topic

I've been on Epiduo now for almost 5 months and the change hasn't been all that great. I was on a course of Roaccutane early last year and it cleared about 95% of my acne up, but last October time I started getting horrible breakouts across my cheeks and back again. Would it be a good idea to go back to my Derm and explain my current situation? :)

im just starting Accutane, but i used epiduo last year when i was in the lab rat stages at my derma where they just throw a bunch a products at me. Anyways i've heard many stories of acne returning after accutane. What do you use on your face everyday like cleanser, and makeup wise. Could that be the culprit? Idk im just throwing things out there but asking your derm is your best bet because im not a Dr. :)

Good luck on it! I wish you all the best :)

I wake up in the morning, wash my hands, cleanse my face and pat it dry with a clean towel. I then moisturize and let that sink in for about half an hour. I then put on a primer and don't use foundation, just concealer on my problem areas. As soon as I'm home, I cleanse my make-up off, then put Epiduo on and go to bed. Then do the same again... I'm also on contraception prescribed for acne prone skin. :(

What makeup are you using? i know i got bad breakouts across my cheecks because of the blush i was using and the pale bronzer. and clean your brushes everyday and once per week deep clean with some kind of soap. and what cleanser do you use? (cetaphil, cerave,?)
