Skincare Routine for an Eczema Sufferer

By Bonnie... Is it just me or has ‘skincare routines’ become the new crazed buzz? My Instagram and Facebook pages are flooded with advertisements featuring beauty influences sprouting  ‘fancy’ skincare products. The new hot conversation with my friends has turned from ‘what foundation do you use’ to ‘what face oil are you wearing.’ It is great to see skincare has become a top priority. As a wise lady once told me (probably my Mum) all the makeup, blow dries, and handbags in the world don’t mean much if your skin is unhappy.    Us eczema warriors will often have a very...

Eczema Foods: What to eat if you have eczema

Eczema…or as my Mother prefers to call it f**** eczema (and she never swears) describes an inflammatory skin condition that can cause skin irritation, oozing blisters, and itchy rashes.  I struggled with eczema for many years, from early childhood through to my teenage years, with the occasional flare still to this day.
