Hey all! So just going to give you a quick overview of the days I didnt post about. 4 or 5 days into Epiduo my face was tight and peeling like crazy! My problem areas felt really rashy and rough(not a pretty sight). That lasted about a good 5 days. I wouldnt recommend exfoliating very much during this time because that only made more irritation and my face felt raw. During that time I was using Cetaphil gentle face wash and didnt wear makeup to cut down as much irritation as I could. Ater putting on the Epiduo I would wait an hour before putting on moisturizer, so the topical can really sink in. For moisturizer I made a little mix of aloe vera gel and jojoba oil and massaged that gently into the skin. Id repeat that about 3 times,letting each layer dry first. Moisture is KEY in using this product. When your skin gets dry it produces more oils....BAM,more pimples(but you probably already knew that,haha). Drinking water helps a bundle too.
And now we come to today,day 11. My flakes,dryness,itchyness,rashy skin is completely gone! My skin is more even toned and there is a SIGNIFICANT decrease in my acne overall. My forehead is probably 85% clear,chin 50%,and around my mouth is 90% clear. It is getting better every day. I just recently got one of those red painful under the skin suckers that take a couple days to turn into nasty whiteheads. But I just put Epiduo on at night to it and within 2 days it was completely gone. I am diggin this product! Im putting together a slide show of my acne over the course of using this and I will post it when its done! This was supposed to start working in a month but Im almost clear and it hasnt even been 2 weeks!! My skin is looking so pretty,haha. I have so much more confidence too...holy cow! Got nothing to complain about Alrighty,ta ta for now!
