Please excuse the very long absence from the blog world. I have been meaning to make a post-TSW skincare routine post for a while, and then just kept putting it off. In all reality, this blog will probably have posts that are way fewer and farther between, since now (OH HAPPY DAY) I don’t need to keep documenting progress of my skin, because I am healed and back to normal! But, I am still here reading the blogs of others with TSW, and still here to give support and encouragement or just answer questions on TSW, skin, eczema, or life in general 🙂
So what do I use these days for general moisturizing, cleansing, skincare, etc?
So clearly, two of my favorite (and skin-friendly!) brands are Paula’s Choice and Tarte, and I know I’ve mentioned both of these brands in other posts on my blog. I was not compensated in any way for promoting these, I just think they are two wonderful brands that are gentle on skin and free from irritating ingredients like added fragrances, etc.
One thing that I was really worried about with post-TSW skin was that my skin would be healed, but would be exquisitely sensitive to everything, more so than before. I am very pleased to note that the ‘sensitivity’ of my skin seems to be what it was before I ever used steroids. I guess I could truly test it with something I reacted badly to, previously, like aloe…. but since I’ve found a routine that works so well for me, I’m sticking to it. 🙂 If you’re out there still trucking through TSW… have hope! There is light on the other side! Normal skin awaits!
