I really wish they made a makeup remover for people with psoriasis. Everything I’ve ever tried (even if it claims to be for sensitive ski) burns so bad. Somebody should get working on that!
I don’t have psoriasis, but I do have seb dermatitis and it gets really bad on my face sometimes. Lots of products are too harsh for me. I saw a review on xoJane about these products and they looked nice, so I bought this:
I’ve only used it a couple of days so far but I really love it! I like to use a gentle cleanser first, then the toner, then moisturize. They also have this lovely thing:
Is is absolute heaven. Seriously, so soothing.
Anyway, something to consider if you haven’t already!
this sucks especially when you have dark sheets cause even the MICROSCOPIC CELLS are visible. UGH.
omg I just found this blog and it’s so cute! Polka Dot Problems! Clever name, talented artist, and totally relate to this issue D:
I really love make-up. I love dolling myself up and painting my face.
I’ve been covering my skin every single day since I can remember being allowed to, especially when my skin started to sprout bumps.
But with my advancing skin problems, lately all I want to do is let it breathe.
So I think I’m going to stop wearing make-up for a little while.
I’ve never done this before, but should be an interesting experiment - no longer hiding my blemishes, red spots, hives and scaly skin. That little protective barrier will be gone, but I feel as if I don’t really need it anymore.
I think perhaps that with the acceptance of my body came the slow acceptance of my skin troubles. I can not fight them, I can only work with them. I can hide my skin issues easier than I can hide my body shape, but I don’t know if I care to anymore. I just no longer give any fucks about people being put-off by my skin. It’s such a relief to come to this realization.
There are still times when I hate my skin, of course. But I won’t make any excuses for it any longer. It is what it is.
Can you relate? What’s your story with make-up, skin care and troubles?
