Faces of Dry Skin Conditions: Real Life Stories from Stephanie, Farah, Carly and Georgia
There has been a stigma attached to skin conditions for centuries.
Those who have skin conditions have not only to cope with the effects of their diagnosis but also the reaction of others to their condition.
In this week's podcast episode, we will be talking about not just one, but three different dry skin conditions that affect millions of people's lives.
Stephanie Shepherd of Cyapsoriasis: Stephanie is living with psoriasis for 14 years now. She runs an Instagram and a YouTube channel which both raise psoriasis awareness, through sharing her story and other people's too. She strongly believes in natural healing, through diet and lifestyle changes, because that’s when she had seen the best results for her skin.
