Month 19.5 to 20.5 update (pic heavy!)

Hello all!

Life has been awesome here at Korea, because my skin has been awesome. There is a sulfur spring about an hour away that I try to go whenever I feel a flare starting. I’ve been about three since I got to Korea. I’m just coming off from a small flare, which I attribute to binge eating dairy and gluten. I’ve noticed when I come off from a flare I poo a lot better too than during. I believe Ryan of Australia said something similar. I’ve been doing moisturizer withdrawal until today -May 8th 2015. Since my face is producing oils and I’ve only been washing it with water, I’ve been getting acne on my forehead (which you will see). While acne is million times better than TSW, I decided I will wash my face with a gentle cleanser now and moisturize afterwards . I will keep you updated on how that goes!

Every time my husband and I meet my skin goes dramatically downhill. Since he is coming soon, I am keeping my fingers crossed! It looks good so far! :D

Right after sulfur hot spring no moisturizer may 4th 2015. Face looks worse than this the front camera quality is just worse so it smoothes everything out.

Taken today(may 8th 2015), right after washing my face and applying moisturizer. No moisturizer anywhere else. Face so far feels good! Flared spots are drying out and peeling off, and it’s very reminiscent of eczema I used to have.

I’m not itchy at all unless I’m flaring and even then it was very minor. Skin is an after thought. I sleep well and haven’t suffered from TSW related symptoms in a long while.

I hope you are doing well. I’m always here if you ever want to talk, etc. Stay strong!
