The more I’m in the skin warriors community, the more I see stories alike. People who want to heal their skin in a more natural way. This is how I am doing it. This is my story and I hope it might help you achieve your skin goals as well.
Why I started to heal my skin for real
I’ve always had mild eczema since my early childhood and had always used steroid creams when it got too itchy or flared up.
Then three years ago I went through massive changes: I moved to another country, I needed to switch my flat several times, I had no money, new jobs, other jobs, side hustles. At the beginning of this period, my skin was worse than ever. I was so anxious about everything and it was visible on my skin. I developed big red patches on my face, neck, arms. It was very scary but had no time or knowledge.
I just used the strongest steroid creams I could.
This went on up until last summer when I had a very strong intuitive decision of getting rid of these creams and searching for alternative solutions.
In the beginning, my skin was worse than ever. I had red, itchy, oozing patches all over my body, even at places I had never had any eczema before: my legs, my back, my nipples. I couldn’t sleep well at night, was constantly in a bad mood, just wanted to hide and isolate myself. My skin just felt awful.
The real change began
Nevertheless, my will of changing my life and healing myself was very strong and I did a lot of research to find the solutions fitting me the best.
I discovered how many things I needed to change around and within me. Right ahead I began to declutter my home, got rid of literally everything containing nasty chemicals, and discovered natural alternatives. I went into nature as often as I could and started to practice meditation and yoga daily.
