About Me - YouTube Video


This is the video I probably should have started with. Most of you know about my eczema and allergies from following my blog but I thought I would post a video to YouTube for the benefit of new followers.

I basically ramble on about how I had severe eczema as a child which lead to a diagnosis of multiple allergies. I then talk about later in life having bad skin again which made me look at the ingredients in skincare. I mention that ideally I try to follow a 100% natural routine or at least avoid certain ingredients which I think trigger my eczema. I normally refer to this as "free from" skincare. As a general rule of thumb I look to avoid SLS/SLES (Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulphate), mineral oil/petroleum, lanolin, urea, artificial fragrance and parabens. I mention in the video  I had a blog post listing all my allergies, click here to read it.

Hope you enjoy watching and it's not too boring. I had so much to say but was worried about taking up too much of your time :)

  1. I found that video incredibly interesting Sarah! As a chocoholic I can't imagine not being able to have a 'normal' chocolate bar with dairy in. I couldn't live without my Galaxy Caramel fix!

    1. It's been tough over the years but now there is more awareness to allergies I have some good dairy free alternatives but I do get jealous of Galaxy :)

  2. This was a really interesting video, dairy products give me stomach ache if I have too much so I try and avoid them too, I have almond milk instead of milk. I got into natural for similar reasons, I have psoriasis on my scalp and it took me a few years to realise sls and artificial fragrance made it much worse, now I just enjoy being different like you said. x

    1. Thank you, glad you found it interesting. It's surprising how much of a problem SLS can cause. I always say "if you won't go natural at least cut out SLS" makes all the difference as far as I'm concerned. I'm a soya milk girl because that's all I've known for 20+ years but now there are other options on the market I've started to experiment :)
