I am currently in the seventh month of topical steroid withdrawal, and things finally seem to be improving. Returning to moisture withdrawal has significantly reduced the amount of flake-age, and I'm so grateful. However, I did use Shea butter this weekend, because I was itching like crazy! I'm learning that what my body needs varies from day to day, and I'm doing my best to listen and provide.
Check out the update video below where I detail what returning to moisture withdrawal has been like and what else I've been doing to aid this healing process. I also talk about how my mental and emotional health has been lately and how I had to readjust my mindset to move forward in a healthy way. After the update scroll down for some progress photos. Much love and until next time!
