Lately, I’ve received a lot of queries about my skincare routine, which is flattering but also personally satisfying because I have struggled with eczema for all of my life.
I’ve spent a good deal of it scouring for products which will not annoy my sensitive skin and also keep it soft and supple – not an easy feat. I’ve even recently gotten steroid shot just to calm down my immune system because it got so bad during the pandemic.
So my facewash is ALWAYS an oatmeal colloidal cleanser in the morning and an olive oil based cleanser at night (to dissolve makeup rather than to scrub it off).
I’ve also got to be extremely cautious of facetowels and washcloths because, depending on the detergent, my face could swell up from getting those harsh chemicals anywhere near it.
