Hello. It’s Xena here again. As promised in my previous videos, I will be sharing some footage of my skin during my healing process of having severe eczema. If you have not seen these videos, I will post a link down in the description bar of these videos. And in these videos, I’ve stated (5) tips which have helped me heal my skin. And I will also put what these (5) tips are in the description bar. And I will say them again to you right now. So the (5) tips that have helped me heal my skin include: 1) Eating clean, whole foods. 2) Exercising daily or having some form of stress management. 3) Having adequate amounts of sleep. 4) Reaching out to your social supports. 5) Being patient and kind to yourself during your healing process. I unfortunately do not have my lifelong documentation of my eczema since a young child up until today as a young adult. I however have some clips since I started documenting in 2013. Before I show you these clips, I would like to say that there will be a lot of skin being revealed. And I apologize if that’s disturbing or just revealing to you. Secondly that I apologize for the quality of the video and how it’s positioned. I didn’t have the intention of sharing it with anyone before. It was personally just for me to view. And thirdly, I apologize for my brothers in the background being young boys- being loud, screaming. So sorry for that distraction. So the first clip being June 2015. The second one being December 2016. And the third one being January 2016. People often ask me how long it took me to “cure” my eczema. This is a really good question. And just to have an answer to this question, I will say that it took about 3 years to heal my eczema. And please take note on my emphasis of “curing” my eczema. I don’t believe that my eczema is “cured” but rather I’ve learned to manage how to heal my skin. So I’d rather say “heal” than “cure.” It’s also hard for me to answer this question of how long it took me to heal my skin because I’ve had eczema since a young child. So I just say that I’ve healed my skin in about 3 years. And for the sake of this video because I’m showing you footage within a years span. I say that I’ve healed my skin within a year. As you see in the title. Without further ado, I will show you those video clips now. It is Sunday December 13, 2015. You can’t really see but you can tell that they’re very wrinkly. And my thumb the worse. You can tell the difference. You can’t really see. This left thumb is in fact more damaged, the skin, compared to this finger here. As well as. If you look closely at my middle fingers that I am wiggling here that you can see some flare ups. My legs are quite itchy. Everywhere really is quite itchy. Another thing to keep in mind too is: I notice around this time of year my skin gets worse but maybe that is because it is a factor of it’s Holiday Season. Why not treat yourself and… All I can say is moderation is key. It is January 31st. Sometimes you aren’t aware of the changes that occur to you until looking back at them. Perhaps you want to document in a journal? Writing it out your healing process. Or maybe you want to take photos or record your healing experience? Or even just sharing with your social supports. It’s a really good feeling looking back at how far you’ve come. Imagine yourself having clear, pain free skin. It’s a good feeling. As per some people’s request, I will be making some videos in regards to what I personally eat. And I will try my hardest to remember what my healing regiment was when I first started changing my lifestyle and wanting to heal my skin. There are a number of resources out there to help you transition into clean eating, eliminating certain foods out of your diet, and just how to heal eczema. In the time being, I will put down some informational links in the description bar which have been useful tools for me. It was very helpful during my healing process. So I highly encourage you to read those links that I will put down in the description bar. So I’d like to say: be patient with yourself, continue your search of healing, and remember those (5) tips that I’ve stated in which have helped me heal my skin. They may help you. Take care and thank you.
