Eczema / Red Skin Syndrome
If you aren’t already aware, I suffer from a skin condition which started as Eczema then progressed to #RedSkinSyndrome. It’s a condition caused by stopping the use of topical steroid creams used to treat the original eczema condition. (To find out about Topical Steroid Addiction and withdrawal read my blog ‘‘What is topical steroid withdrawal? (TSW)’ here.
To read about how my skin is currently, as I write this, read my blogs ‘My skin updates here.
Posting my worst online!
I’ll be honest, I still can’t quite believe I am posting these videos online although I’ve grown to feel as liberated about it as I do nervous, so swings and roundabouts right!?!
With an overwhelming response to my Instagram story (asking if anyone would be keen to see me apply makeup), I decided to bite the bullet and go for it! Most people share videos and images when they look and feel their best however I think it’s important to show that that’s often not real life. There are so many of us who have conditions whether that be scars or skin complaints, I thought I’d share this video to raise awareness as well as to help those who need help it when trying to apply makeup to difficult skin!
We become our own experts!!
In all seriousness, it is daunting posting these videos online however one of the main reasons I started this blog was to be able to offer up my experience gained over the years living with eczema (and now red skin syndrome.) Not medical or professional experience or advice, just general ‘life experience!’ having lived with a condition like eczema for all these years! For years I have covered up my bad skin and as a result, a lot of people were unaware that I even suffered (especially to the extent at which I do) So, with that, I figured that perhaps I was doing a good enough job concealing it all with makeup so thought, why not share it??!!
So after many years trying different makeup brands, I think I’ve fine-tuned it now and would say
‘I’ve got it covered!!’
(I couldn’t resist, sorry!!)
