Own your skin condition... don’t let it tell you what to wear!12 December 2018
Saying ‘own your skin condition’ might sound a bit strange, but it’s really important with eczema to know that you’re in control even in the midst of a flare up, it doesn’t own you.
And as it’s party season it’s time for another party blog! This time, I’d like to focus on something which can be daunting to all us eczema warriors what to wear. I know some of you reading this will be fretting this for about upcoming parties. Will my skin feel comfortable? Will this cover my eczema patches? All questions I used to ask myself.
How to own your skin condition... my style secret
I used to spend forever hunting down the perfect dress to cover my eczema which also felt soft on my skin. Now I’m not saying you shouldn’t do this if it makes you feel happier and more confident, then go for it.
But let me tell you something I’ve found really, incredibly liberating. Just letting go. Wearing whatever I want, because I think it looks good, and because I feel good in it. I don’t care if my eczema is showing. And do you know what? Nobody else does either.
Why not try it? Get your arms and legs out, buy that dress you’ve been saving for the ‘perfect skin day’ and totally rock it. Just take a deep breath and walk into that party full of sass and confidence. Because that’s what will make you look beautiful in whatever your wearing.
Time to show eczema who’s the boss!
Lots of love, Camille xx
