I am so sorry Ive been gone so long. Honestly, I am not busy at all, just lazy haha. My skin is still doing well. It is kind of allergic to the sun, and its very sunny here, so sometimes I get minor rahes. Its not even itchy so I don’t mind. Body is still moisturizer free 99.99% of time (I cant remember the last time but Im sure it has happened) face I sometimes use moisturizer if I wash my face with face wash. Usually it’s water and leave alone method for me. Diet is still gf, lf, try to stay away from sugar.
Just a quick update to let you guys know how I am doing. Here are some photos from life. Remember, pics or it didn’t happen :D But really, I would be wary of claims of people being healed if there are no photos to back it up.
Times square is best 7 in the morning lulz.
Before I started juice cleanse…. i will post more about it, but the tl;dr is NotWorthIt!!!
That’s it for now! Long update coming for 3 yr mark! Crossing my fingers the anniversary flare doesnt happen! I hope you are feeling better.
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
Pic taken right after sulfur hot spring, no moisturizer. Apr 4th 2015
Sulfur hot spring changes my silver ring! My wedding band is used to gauge the concentration of sulfur haha
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!
I’ve been insanely busy but a quick update! I’ll do a thorough one soon!
I’m doing very well. Over thanksgiving break I went to a sulfur hot springs and it was amazing for me!! So if any of you feel you’re hitting a plateau in healing, try it out. Lmk if you are interested in which one I went to.
Face today. Arms below from right after hot springs.
It seems neck down is mostly healed – I soaked in hot springs for hours and my skin ate it up! Afterwards it’s been clear like it hasn’t been in a long time. Neck up was dry and irritated but few days ago something clicked and my face started to feel oily again. I am not using any moisturizers again- so that picture is all me! It’s amazing how far my body has come. Just keep trekking everybody!
