So, time for me to share a pet peeve of mine. This is yesterday’s comic at the wonderful Beatrice the Biologist, and it is a pretty cool wee summary of something that drives me up the wall. Because I have a fairly visible skin condition, people just *love* to give me unsolicited and downright unhelpful advice. One such thing is the constant suggestion that I should be using ‘natural remedies’. The thing is, though, that ‘natural’ as a label is fairly meaningless, and often products that are marketed as natural have a lot of fragrances that aggravate skin.
I also find it particularly ironic that people fail to realise that some skin conditions (especially eczema) are often very closely linked to allergies, such as pollen, pet dander, grass and dust mites, and all of these allergens are “natural”.
