INSTAGRAM VS REALITY ➡️ SWIPE
I had a huge response in my DM’s because this was originally on my story so I’m posting it so it becomes permanent 🙌🏽 First photo was my edit, no one would have any idea I was struggling with my skin, second is unedited, my real skin.
I’ve suffered with eczema since I was a little girl, having flare ups every now and again, but after having it most of my life i’ve learnt how to deal with it, what products works best for me and how to calm a flare up.
My eczema has only ever been in my joints (behind my knees and elbows), places easy enough for me to cover, but a few months ago my eczema started flaring up all over my body in little white patches. None of my usual products were working, I was doing my same routine everyday but it kept getting worse. It got to the point where people started asking if I had vitiligo because my skin was that noticeable.
I gave it some time to heal naturally but nope, it only got worse. It made me feel so shitty and self concious, so I eventually went to the doctors to seek further advice. She told me my eczema flare up was caused through stress and anxiety (my skin was never one to flare up through my moods, but I’d gone through the hardest few months of my life which started to show through on my skin.) She gave me shower products, oils and steroid creams, which I really didnt think would help, I thought it would make my pigment and eczema worse.
These are all the products I’ve been using which have been a GODSEND to me, I would highly recommend to anyone suffering with eczema/psoriasis/extreme dry skin.
Videos are my skin now, not 100% patch free but I’m soooo happy with my progress! (Videoed to prove there is no editing!) Any questions I will gladly answer! ⬇️❤️
