Hi iv been using epiduo for 4 weeks now. Its working a treat but I used hair removal cream on my upper lip and I'm now left with a very dry and sore upper lip. Has anyone any hints or tips for hair removal while using epiduo.
The active ingredient in those hair removers is Caustic Soda which is extremely alkaline and hard to wash off. It literally turns the exposed part of the hair into jelly which you scrape off with a piece of plastic. Your lip is sore as it has, basically, chemical burns. You will have to wait for it to heal (don't lick it).
