Blog content: Sensitive Skin Beauty and Lifestyle : should I stay or should I go….?

Eczema: Reaching the other side of the road where the grass is greener…My healing reflections

When you have eczema all you do is wish you could have normal skin, wish that you could be anybody else who didn’t have to deal with this. Wish that you will wake up one day and it will just finally leave you alone.  I remember at first how reliant I was on what the … Continue reading

Reflection, Taking control and Being Happy

The art of reflection. The ability to evaluate things that have happened and see situations in a more objective and logical way. When bad things happen – a fight, a bad report at work, a flare up – we have this automatic response, a primitive one, to place blame elsewhere, or to hide away and … Continue reading
