I've been bad. Last summer, despite the slow and steady progress I had been making with epiduo, i stopped treatment abruptly as i was going on a summer expedition-style trip. I had told myself I'd be off it for no more than a month simply because i didn't want to be peeling like crazy around so many people, and my skin had been looking so good that i thought i'd be fine for a while, and indeed i was. i enjoyed the whole summer last year, with pretty decent skin. However, bit by bit the problems crept back up on me, and now it seems i'm back where i began i never went back onto epiduo so this is all entirely my own fault as i had only used it for about 2 months, which is ridiculously short. but now, i'm going to start again. it's reached such a bad stage that i've got a renewed vigour to plod on and use this treatment that i KNOW works for my skin and i'm not going to stop. I guess it's Day 1 Take 2.
