rich emollient used in the management of eczema, psoriasis and other dry skin conditions.


Hey guys,

My skin is pretty much the same as yesterday, I still haven’t used steroids on my face 🙂

In this post I just wanted to talk about how my cravings seem to be going away! Sometimes when I’m in college and walking around shops I do get a bit of a craving to grab every chocolate covered sweet in sight! But I’m really proud of myself because I always walk out of the shop empty handed and I feel so good about myself. Also, in my diet I’ve just started making omelettes, I made one before and I really didn’t like it, but now I realize that I only like it when it’s really thin and covered in bacon! It’s delicious! So I am beginning to find new things to try, (like sweet potato chips!) and I’m getting to grips with the raw diet, and I’ve read so much about the benefits from eating raw food! It’s so useful for so many reasons and I’m so glad that I’ve stumbled across it. I really suggest you read up about the raw paleo diet, or any raw food diet, it’s so good for you and it’s the way we were meant to eat 🙂 & hopefully it’ll help/cure my eczema!! It also helps people lose weight efficiently as well, no need for hardcore cardio! Just a healthy raw diet with a healthy amount of exercise can help you so much 🙂

Bye guys 🙂

Hey, my name is Brooke. Basically, I have this blog so I can talk about eczema. I have suffered with eczema all my life, and when I turned 13 it flared up for no apparent reason, and has remained basically the same. So on here I will hopefully be blogging everyday explaining new things I am using to try and fight eczema, and hopefully I will overcome it. Happy blogging!

    Hi Brooke, I found your post first at the talkhealth forum and then you linked to this blog. I have the same exact issues as you with the hands/arms and face eczema. Flares on and off and I cannot seem to find any rhyme or reason for it. I also have days where I won’t leave the house and feel so sad and depressed.
    I started seeing a naturopath and have been dairy and gluten free for about 7 months now, and removed sugar as well 2 months ago. I also take lots of different supplements and vitamins. Unfortunately, I still have really bad days so obviously it’s not enough. I do my best to avoid steroid creams because I think they are so bad for you.
    I am considering the Paleo next (I’ve already given up so much yummy food, the Paleo can’t be that much harder.) It does make sense to me that what I eat affects my skin … if my insides are unhappy, my outsides show it. Thanks for blogging and letting us know how it’s going.

    Hi Kristy 🙂
    Wow I think you’re the first person who’s basically had the same experience as me!! I also started eliminated things from my diet and got to the point where Paleo seemed like an easy stretch!
    The bad days suck, but I hope that you find what works for you 🙂
