19 months y'all! I can't believe it, but I'm grateful that I'm no longer waking up with my eyes swollen shut, my face flaking off and my skin oozing. I've been monitoring my time on social media for my mental health and have been more diligent about my diet, yoga and breathing exercises. Winter definitely has my skin feeling dryer than usual, but overall I feel good. Check out the update for more details!
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!
