On April 1st, the year of our Lord 2019, I stopped using my eczema medication. In the last few updates I talked about how the medication wasn't working as well, and I wasn't sure what I needed to do. Well after getting a stronger prescription and upping the applications per day, I still wasn't getting favorable results. It's always been my goal to heal naturally and eliminate the use of steroids, so now I'm back on track to reaching that goal.
Check out the vlog below where I go into detail about why it took me so long to return to the all natural route and the importance of putting your health first.
I've been tracking the progress of my skin since I've stopped using the medication. It's been very up and down so far, but lately I've been consistently flaky. You can see the progress below. I've also added some links for more information about the products and people I talked about in the update.

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!
