Kirsty Usher from Bristol has suffered with severe psoriasis for 20 years, but she has finally found a cream that has cured her condition.
Forty-six-year-old Kirsty was so self-conscious about the psoriasis on her legs that she would wear 100 denier black tights all the time - including during summer ever since the age of 27.
The mother-of-two has tried everything to cure her regular flare ups, including prescription medication and remedies such as UVB light treatment.
In December 2017, she saw a success story about Childs Farms products on Facebook, and after buying the £4 baby moisturiser she saw a noticeable difference in her skin within days.
Kirsty said: "For the past twenty years I have been so self-conscious about my legs that I have been wearing 100 denier tights, even in the middle of summer.
"The worst of my psoriasis has always been on my legs, but it also gets on my elbows and scalp too.
"I can tell people think it is contagious by the looks they give me, so I've always thought it was just easier to cover up rather than be made to feel uncomfortable by people staring.
"One evening I went out with my friends and they convinced me to leave the tights at home. At the bar, a man came up to us and ridiculed me for my legs. That was it then - I never went out without my tights on after that.
"When I saw the story about the Childs Farm Baby Moisturiser I just thought: 'why not?' I was desperate for something to work.
"I popped into Tesco to buy the cream and started using it, and within a couple of hours the itching had stopped. Within a week I could see my skin was no longer so red, and soon after my skin was really flat and I could see whole sections where my legs were a skin colour rather than bright red. I couldn't believe it."
This summer marks the first time that Kirsty has gone out wearing dresses without tights for the first time in nearly 20 years.
She added: "This is the first time in nearly twenty years that I have worn a dress without tights. It feels amazing to finally have bare legs especially in this heat. Childs Farm has change my life and given me back my confidence."
Joanna Jensen, founder of Childs Farm, added: "We believe that everyone should feel happy in their skin and so it's fantastic to know that our Baby Moisturiser has offered Kirsty some relief, as well as giving her the confidence to step out without tights. We are constantly overwhelmed by the love and support we get for our brand and would like to wish Kirsty all the very best for the future."
