Karla Mosley took part in one of The Bold and the Beautiful’s most important social-issue stories in its 33-year history. Transgender Maya (born Myron) Avant underwent procedures to live her more authentic self. Now, the actress is speaking out on a real-life situation hoping to bring relief to folks who may be going through it, as well.
Karla Mosley Brings Awareness
Mosley has suffered throughout her life with eczema and recently posted a photo, showing that her hands are now greatly improved. “This is the least like an 80 year old lizard that my hands have looked like in 3 months!” Mosley posted. “I had terrible #eczema as a kid, which pretty much disappeared in adulthood and then left almost entirely when I went #GlutenFree.
“BUT all this hand washing and hand sanitizer brought it back to my hands with a vengeance!!!” the actress adds. “(Holla if you hear me! Not fun.) So, the past few weeks I’ve been on a heal thy hands mission. I had to step back from as much water and sanitizer as I could – I mostly do gloves and then soap and water now. And I use calendula cream on my hands. That seems to be doing the trick. Just thought I’d share in case anyone else was going through a similar thing! 💗💗💗💗.”
One of Karla Mosley‘s followers, @twist_treats, responded: “I hears ya on that one, @karlamose not fun. Stress too will bring about a flareup. Try and keep off the handsanitizer and just stick to soap and water while you’re home. Its really harsh on your skin and strips it of its natural bacteria. I use Eucerin creame (not the lotion) for my hands after I’ve washed them. Keeps them soft and hydrated. It really helps.”
“Yes!” Mosley exclaimed. “Thanks for the stress reminder.” As always, it’s best to consult a medical professional on how to treat eczema. The Bold and the Beautiful (BB) airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for airtimes.
