In my healing journey I’ve done my best to reduce harm from the products I use, the food I eat, and the environments I spend time in. Unfortunately, we live in a really toxic world. In the United States, there are so many ingredients in food and personal care products that are illegal in other countries. I’ve had many a panic attack stressing over what type of cleaning products I need or if my clothes are poisoning me or if I’m eating the right diet. At the end of the day, we can only do the best we can. Living non-toxically is expensive and time-consuming.
45 months steroid free and I'm never going back. I've been MIA due to depression and some major life transitions, but I'm back! Thanks for baring with me y'all!
I'm Lauren, aka Just Du Pree, and I want to thank you for reading. This is a space where I share my very personal journey healing from eczema and topical steroid withdrawal (among other things), life lessons I've learned along the way, and occasionally the thoughts of an awkward Black girl (no Issa Rae). I'm a performer and filmmaker, so if you feel so inclined, pop over here to see what goes on in my mind on the regular. If you like what you see, you can stay up to date with my work here. Much love, friends!
