I definitely think my skin is better than it was before smile.png

Glad to ear that! Is not your skin irritated, dry and red? How often do you use Epiduo now?

Day 40 i think? Lol. Sooo, I have been breaking out pretty badly again. I got 8 new blemishes. And they are all pretty noticeable and hard to cover up. They aren't super bumpy, they are just really red. The little bump they have flattens out quickly but its hard to conceal it anyway. And i notice that with these, it takes the scar a long time to go away. So with progress, i say i've taken a few steps back. My skin looks just as bad as before i started using. Kinda disappointing because the left side of my face was so close to being cleared up. I'm still not giving up quite yet since i haven't been using it for 3 months

Breakouts happen. But you have to be patient, it's just a bad moment, be brave.

Its been a month and a half since i started using. I haven't been updating regularly because i haven't been seeing much progress. Things will start to get better, then worse, then better, then worse. Frustrating because just when i think there's hope, bam! 5 more blemishes appear. I notice the ones i have been getting aren't quite that bad. I still have a lot of scarring, i think its going away a tiny bit. I'm thinking of adding pictures into the gallery maybe? Hmm..there isn't much more to say..i guess i've been seeing a tiny bit of progress this week? I want my skin to be cleared up before school starts! :(

Pictures could help you to see the improvement!

Because, to be honest, we're all sociopath here, we stare at our face in the mirror very very close, several times a day (or maybe I'm the only sociopathe here, whatever).

 

Do you keep using Epiduo every night?

Personnally, I just cannot. I use it three or four times a week, otherwise my skin is in tatters: red, dry, it's even hard to smile, because it hurts.

I was sorry to read this because I've been using Epiduo every night and have been really surprised that my skin isn't actually dry, flakey, red or irritated. Maybe this is all still to come as I've only been using it a week... =/ What moisturiser have you been using?

"Avène clean-ac: hydrating, soothing, that adjunctives to acne treatments", but it makes my skin shines like French fries, so I alternate with the mattifying fluid of the same brand.

Yikes i haven't updated in a while! I figured i would today because i have been using epiduo for 2 months now. Earlier this week, i broke out pretty badly, there was 6 new blemishes. They were terrible, but they are disappearing quickly quickly! And everything else seems to be getting better too. The reason i had not updated in such a long time is because i hadn't really been making any progress. But now i definitely feel like this is the point where i'm going to start clearing up. I really hope the improvements will stay consistent and i won't break out again before school starts on wednesday. I see most of the others that have posted here are also using epiduo, i hope things are going well for you guys! Let me know if things are improving for you as well! :)
