My Bad Skin Isn't So Bad

Updated on June 30, 2009

I have psoriasis.  I just recently found this out.  For years I went to doctors only to be misdiagnosed every time.  To top all of that off, I was a model, with spots I had to hide from the camera.  

I eventually got married, and almost a year later found out I was pregnant.  Miraculously, my bad skin disappeared.  After I had my baby, i breastfed, and still - no bad skin.  I thought I was cured.

I noticed though, that my son had extremely dry skin.  And although I read and doctors said it was normal, I knew in my heart it wasn't.  So I began looking for something natural that would help his skin.  I started using shea butter and shea nut oil on him and eventually his skin began to get better.  I also used the shea nut oil in my sons hair regularly.  He never did get cradle cap, or baby acne.

I weaned my son from breastfeeding the day after his first birthday.  Shortly after, my dry, cracked skin came back.  So I began using the shea butter and the shea nut oil.I noticed improvement, but it never would go away completely.

I began reading more about natural products and decided to start selling them,  My mother in law was my first customer.

I continue to use shea butter, shea nut oil. and other natural products as well as fragrance and essential oils on my skin.  Visit my other hub to find out why.

      Going natural is a good idea since there are a lot of products out there that are not satisfactory since there are many medical treatments for good skin care, although unfortunately, it can not be said that there is any one, single treatment. Rather than having a single treatments, doctors generally have to try several different products for each individual before finding the treatment or combination of treatments that will clear up the problem.Actualy a few do work but the best treatment is prevention.
