My Skin Troubles

I have to confess that I am struggling for product reviews at the moment. I’m suffering from random rashes and eczema breakouts and it is making testing products a struggle because I have to be so careful.  This is the reality of my life. Just when I am lulled into a false sense of security and preaching advice to the internet, then this happens.



There are a million and one reasons why this is happening and it is never easy trying to find an answer. Oh boy, my skin is not my friend at the moment. Random rashes do not make me feel sexy. Luckily it is not causing me too much trouble but I do often ask myself why does my body hate me so much? why can’t I just be normal? 

I am not going to lie, at this moment in time I absolutely hate my eczema and allergies. How do I deal with it? I have a cry about it and then take positive steps to manage it.

Anyone else struggling in their skin? Lets all have a cry about it together and send out virtual hugs :-)

    1. Thank you for your comment, I'm pleased you enjoy my reviews. I appreciate the suggestion but Sudocream will not be coming anywhere near my skin it is full of nasty ingredients which I chose to avoid plus it contains lanolin which I am allergic to

  3. Aw I definitely know how you feel - I was having so many breakouts a few months ago. Recently though I've gone back to being a veggie and I've found that I can't really stomach dairy and eggs at the moment - for some reason they make me feel a bit queasy. So I've unintentionally become a vegan!...And since I have I actually haven't had one break out of eczema x

    1. That's really interesting to me that you have had that result as you know I'm allergic to milk & eggs. I need to watch what I'm eating & I think stress isn't helping along with testing new products :)

  4. I always get flare ups on my elbows and hands which can be worsened by dust and the heat. The only thing that's helped me are cortisone creams but I don't like to be using them so often but when they start itching it's killer!

    1. oh yes the itch is the worst part, I can cope with ugly looking skin. I generally can get relief from balms containing chamomile & calendula :)

  5. Hope it clears up soon! I have sensitive skin but luckily no allergies (that I know of), can't imagine how frustrating it must be. You deserve a good old cry!

  6. Poor you, big virtual hug!!

    I remember when I use to get flare ups under my eyes and on my eye lids and boy it was painful, like a burn. Touch wood I'm okay for now as that was many years ago but the winter always gets my my sensitive skin!

    I hope it clears up soon. If your feeling a bit stressed its a good excuse to pamper yourself a bit and chill out watching your favorite film or something all "balmed up".

    1. Thank you Laura, I was having a little trouble under my eyes and it's blooming painful so I can understand where you are coming from. It has calmed down now I've been slapping on the balms :)

  7. So sorry to see you are having issues! It's probably best to keep it as simple as possible. It must be incredibly tough to be a beauty blogger with allergies and eczema, we are all very lucky that you share your experiences and perspective with us! Hope you are since feeling better.

    1. This happened the other week so I am on the mend. I wanted to share it with people to show what I talk about is very real and comes from genuine experiences.

  8. Thank you for sharing this picture. Our little boy is having a random eczema break out at the moment. Despite it having happened before I always question whether he has an illness that I haven't been good enough to identify. A trip to the doctors previously only prompted them to scratch their heads, advise eczema and prescribe steroid cream. What would you turn to for a stubborn inflamed patch?

    1. Sorry to hear your little one is having skin problems. When my skin flares up I will either apply a 100% natural balm or cream which contains calendula and camomile. Anything which has a shea or cocoa butter base is great in creams.
