The Polka Dot Princess

What are the red patches? Layla has psoraisis. It’s a chronic skin condition where the immune system goes into overdrive, causing scaly, inflamed patches. As someone with hyperkeratotic eczema, I know the struggle firsthand — it’s not easy. Layla is preparing to share her story of life with psoriasis with others. I’m looking forward to reading her posts sometime soon. Make sure you are following Layla on Instagram.

We all wrestle with self-image demons. Every time we face the camera, we confront the gap between how we see ourselves and how others perceive us. It’s a tough reality check. But embracing that vulnerability? That’s where the magic happens. When we authentically show the world who we are, flaws and all, we radiate a rare kind of beauty. It takes courage, but it’s incredibly empowering. I have the deepest respect for Layla and everyone bravely owning their truth!
