Day 62!

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 mo

Day 50!

Hey! Just a quick update on how I'm doing with the doxy + epiduo. I think it's getting a lot better! It's kind of hard to tell, because I have a LOT of red marks now, and I'm still really bad in terms of picking at my face. However, I have noticed my face feels a lot less uncomfortable and itchy recently- or rather, I haven't noticed anything, and have been able to think about normal, non-skin-related stuff and get on with my life! I still get maybe one or two new lumps or spots each day, but th

Day 35 (?) Doxycycline!

So over the past couple of weeks I've noticed my skin has basically stopped improving - still 5+ new large whiteheads and lumps per day, constant itching and swelling (especially if my hair touches my face, I wear a scarf, I pull a T-shirt over my head, the air around is me is too hot/cold/dry/humid, you know, just, all the time). And I've also been really depressed - basically every day I wake up and think of 10 excuses not to leave the house, but so far I've still managed to force myself to go

Day 29 - Bad Times

Update! My skin has been a lot worse this week, so no pics, because they fill me with despair I'm not sure why, maybe stress, maybe impatience, but I definitely haven't managed to keep to my no-touching rule, and it has had a massive impact on the appearance of my spots. It's also had a massive impact on my confidence, and I've been more upset about my skin this week than ever before - it's been a real struggle to just make myself get out of the house every day to go to work, and I even worked

Day 22 - Super Long Rambly Post :)

Sooo, I haven't updated for a while, as to be honest my face was looking pretty horrible and taking pictures of it every day was just making me feel worse about it. But I've uploaded some pics of how my skin's looking today, after another 11 days of using epiduo - I think there's been a big improvement! I definitely feel happier with how it looks, and that's even after another couple of times where I got really frustrated with it and squeezed/picked/generally prodded at my face, taking me back t

Day 11

So I decided to start keeping track of my experience with epiduo on this site, as I've spent enough time lurking on other people's blogs about it, and I figure tracking my progress on here could help me to stick to the regime... and also my boyfriend is already sick of hearing every tiny detail about my skin, so I decided to obsess in a slightly more appropriate environment. A bit of background - I'm 22, and my skin has never been great, I've always had at least one spot on the go. I've ha
