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

Hey guys

My skin is going well still, my upper arms and legs are quite bad after showers, but my skin always reacts badly after a shower! But the skin on my face is doing especially well at the moment 🙂 I tried the protopic cream today on a small patch of skin on my forehead & my skin seems to get along with it fine, which is great!

On the other hand, today I was quite hungry and the only place I know near my college that did food I could eat (omelettes, nom nom) was closing! So me & my friend went to  a caffe, and they had something I could eat there, perfect! But they were all out, of course that’s just my luck. So I ended up with a chicken and bacon baguette, which was horrible! I could tell how processed and fake the chicken & bacon was, it was awful. So I did cheat, but instantly regretted it and have been eating plenty or fruit, veg and drinking lots of water to flush it out of my system, so I’m hoping my skin won’t react badly and my skin can just continue healing, stupid non-paleo options everywhere!

Bye guys,
Brooke x

    Hi Brooke, wondering how you did the day after eating the bad food? Did you have a reaction?

      Hi Kristy, no my skin didn’t flare up, I was lucky this time! But I did feel a bit off for about a day afterwards, not as happy as I have been lately so maybe it was more of a mental flare up, haha.

    Hi Brooke, I noticed my eczema was flaring up after a shower. I have found my skin is much better if I use cold water for a shower. And I mean as cold as it will go! I tried a 30 day cold water challenge and it definitely makes a big difference. It can be tough but it feels great when it’s over! Sometimes I use warm or hot water if I have a cold and I need to warm my body up (which is good before sleep). It wasn’t too hard for me as I often shower after exercise and it makes you feel very grateful that we have hot water in this country. Saves on heating bills as well. Also my skin is much better if I only shower once a day. Hope that helps 🙂

  3. Hi Brooke and Christopher. Have you thought about reducing your skin’s exposure to the chlorine in the shower water? A lot of my customers with eczema find that a dechlorinating filter makes a real difference to their skin and hair. If you go to the AllergyBestBuys website you can find out more about the best bath and shower dechlorinators and water softeners. Hope this helps.Good luck!
