Eczema update…

For a few months now I have mainly talked about products on here so I thought it was about time I did an eczema/skin/life update…

This picture was taken at the end of August just before I was going to a festival for the day. This is when I thought my eczema was looking quite good so can you imagine how bad it’s been over the past year?!

Looking at it now, I still don’t think it looks that bad. Yeah, it’s red, a bit weepy and I can remember it being really itchy but it almost just looks like mosquito bites. I was still worried people would stare at me though or think I had some gross contagious disease. I hate how the slightest imperfection makes you think so little of yourself. At the end of the day, who gives a fuck about a few red bumps on the back of someone’s leg? It’s so hard to not give a fuck though!

I never took any pictures of my skin when it was at it worst because I just couldn’t face it. I really wish I had now so I could compare and see how far I’ve come but at the time I never thought it would get better. Today my skin and scalp are under control and pretty much clear. It feels amazing! I never thought it would get to this stage, especially in winter. It’s been a really tough journey going back and forth to the doctors every month, going to the pharmacy every two weeks, trying to stay calm in the worst of times, all whilst working full time and trying to have a normal life…it was all worth it though! I’ve finally got a solid routine that works for me, even the red patch of doom on my jaw has gone!

Getting my life back over the past few months has felt amazing. I can wear make up all day now without wanting to scratch my face off! I can stay at my friends houses! I can wear what I want! I don’t have to moisturise my whole body a million times a day anymore! Yaaassss! Here’s to clear, stress free skin in 2018!!!

Keep those bars of soap away from me though…
