Having eczema means I am always on the hunt to try out the best “superfoods”; all the miracle powders, seeds, supplements and foods that promise to heal your gut and make you glow from the inside out. I’ll admit that “superfood” is a bit of a buzz word and really, what does it mean? Can any of them actually make you healthier and how?

I remember spending hours every night washing, drying and straightening my unruly and frizzy hair into submission. I was about 11 when I first started using my sisters’ hand me down straightening iron that took about 30 minutes to heat up and I’ve been fighting with my hair ever since.
