Skin science

So I'm not sure what's been up with my skin but I've been REALLY itchy lately. I thought it might be stress because I tend to get rashes when I'm stressed but it's come to the point where I can't be stressed every single minute of the day... Can I? Anyway, when I was in Italy, I don't think I was stressed and yet I was still so darn itchy so I think my skin is dry... Therefore... 

I've stopped using soap! 

Which is not to say that I'm a smelly dirty person who doesn't bathe, but rather, I now use a non-soap based cleanser called Physiogel. I love how the site purports to be 'the science you need for the skin you want'. I think they should change it to 'We science away your itches'. The only hurdle is really getting used to the non-foamy squeaky clean feeling which makes me feel like I'm not clean enough and therefore I use waaay more cleanser than normal (no lathering on my loofah!!)

So far, after 3 days of using it, I do feel less itchy overall so I think it's working! Now I just have to make sure I don't stress myself out and cause stress rashes. 

My god. What a problem child I am.  

Thanks for reading!
