1 Month and 20 days in!
So I totally forgot to mention that yes, I am doing moisturiser withdrawal. I started probably 1 week into TSW. I was pretty skeptical in the beginning but then I thought I really don’t have anything to lose. I had already taken time off both work and uni so why not?
The first few days were hard! It was as much a mental battle and a physical one. Skin was super tight and very uncomfy for the first hour or so after showering but then I found the rest of the day was more bearable then if I had moisturised. I definitely think MW worked for me. It let the ooze dry and didn’t leave me feeling ‘wet’ all the time. Plus the moisturiser I was using made me burn.
I’m starting to sweat like crazy too. Sometimes I have no idea if I’m sweating or oozing.. Although sometimes the ooze is stickier and has that metallic smell. I hate that 😦
My arms are going through a flare I think! Very itchy and oozy. This is right after a shower so it doesn’t look as bad as it feels. My arms are no longer red but have turned this colour instead..
My legs have also turned that strange purple/dark blue that I have heard so much about. This parts not so bad but it’s all raw and oozy behind the knees :s When I try to sleep my legs are bent at all weird angles to try and get some comfort!
I’m actually really impressed when I see other bloggers take photos of the back of their knees by themselves. What the! it’s harder than it looks! It fricken amazes me because I can’t bring myself to twist that way. My belly is way too raw .
I’ll try and take some better photos with better angles in future. I’m so sick of always looking at my skin. Can’t wait until it’s no longer such a priority! Eczema, get away!!
