Epiduo Week 1 Complete

Sign in to Follow  


Alright, so I've officially been using this stuff for a week. After the first 4 days, I had to change my cleanser and completely stop using it on my face at all because it was making my face so dry, flaky, and irritated that no matter how much I moisturized, it just wouldn't stop flaking. So that made it really hard to wear makeup without looking completely gross. But I continued to use it on my body acne. It seemed like my face got a little clearer but I think that mostly had to do with the time of month it is. My body acne kind of seems like it's been getting worse....so I don't know if the Epiduo has anything to do with that or not but I'm going to continue it for a little bit longer. Also, I've begun to use it on my face again so I'll let you know if it gets crazy dry again.

Hey, although Epiduo didn't work for me, I advise that you stick with it. The derm told me it would make my skin dry and flaky for about two weeks but that eventually your skin gets used to it. I know it stinks right now, but stick it out for a few weeks and see how you do. Just continue to use moisturizer for now, no matter how pointless it seems.

Yeah, I'm probably definitely going to give it a month at least. I just really think my acne is hormonal, and I don't know if a topical cream is really going to cut it because the only thing that has ever worked for me in the slightest was an antibiotic that I took every day and night. So we shall see. Thanks for the advice!
