Growing up, people with skin conditions learn that their problem will be with them for life. They are taught how to control triggers, what to eat, what they can’t do, and what skin care products they’re allowed to use. You might think it’s overwhelming, but when you don’t know any other lifestyle, it’s part of your daily routine. I remember learning how to read complex ingredients on lotions and creams at a very young age. That way I could determine if a certain product was going to do me more harm than good, even if everyone at school was using it.
Some days were tougher than others, especially when I was a teenager. I wanted to be like the other girls, you know? Wear the same clothes and makeup. but most of the times I wasn’t allowed. And when I tried to take my chances, the consequences were very painful. That’s the last thing you want as a teenager, to be the special one for the wrong reasons.
My mother was always reading on eczema and alternative treatments, homemade medicine, all-natural supplements. You name it! If there was a new wave or a new trend in the eczema treatment world, she’d know about it. I mean, if there was a blog back then, she would have been a very successful mommy blogger!
Thanks to my mother, and her restless search event after I became an adult, I found FaceDoctor medicated soap and my life changed. No, let me rephrase that. Life as I knew it ceased to exist. Literally. I haven’t had an eczema flare in six months. I feel almost adventurous enough to experiment with products and makeup I couldn’t use before. That’s how confident I am in the efficiency of this bar of soap with the active ingredient sea buckthorn oil.
