What can you use/not use if you're on prescription acne topical medication???
Oh god - sorry babe I have no idea this is something you need to ask your derm. Here's my best advice
- •Just be gentleMixing ingredients is bad enough (this you should run by your doc for sure!) but also be wary of over exfoliation from Manual scrubbing
- •Don't forget to moisturizeQuote the pharmacist when I started on Epiduo: "This works better when you combine it with a cream?" ME: "WHAT CREAM?!?!" Him: "Um, like um for um moisturizing err I think?" ME: Moisturizer? Him: "yeah I guess that's what it's called?!" Helpful man, real helpful.
- •Sunscreen sunscreen sunscreenSunscreen
- •It takes some time to workUsually things get worse (the "purge") before they get better but it's worth the wait
