Many people have asked me why I started NutriKrem.
Well, here is my story:
One day, out of the blue, around July 2017, I noticed that my face started flushing occasionally, and it was very swollen in the mornings. At first, I thought it was an allergy, but it just progressed and got worse as time passed.
I went to various dermatologists, specialists, and tried various medications, skincare treatments, and skin products of which the majority irritated my skin and/or gave me an allergic reaction.
I went through a very emotional time and completely withdrew from society, including neglecting my family. It was very challenging to do my full-time job, but I kept persisting to find answers and solutions.
I gave away, and even threw away most of the skincare products that I had previously purchased. I didn’t seem to see much improvement in my skin after all the thousands of Rands I had spent. Thanks to my hero husband Ian, who has supported me all the way, I didn’t give up!
Finally, I was diagnosed with Rosacea Subtype 1, known as Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea (ETR). I still can’t pronounce it to this day, but it is basically a subtype of Rosacea characterised by flushing, persistent central facial erythema (redness), and telangiectasias (thread-like veins).
