Well I bet that’s a contender for the weirdest blog title you’ve read today! There are many ways I keep control of my rosacea: changing my diet, adapting my lifestyle, carefully selecting my skincare. But day to day I have had to learn how to cope with the way that rosacea affects me mentally. So I decided to share with you how blue lipstick helps me cope with rosacea… stick with me, it will all become clear!

Last Tuesday I appeared on Channel 4 on Katie Piper’s Face To Face, a programme dedicated to raising awareness of different facial conditions and talking about the empowering and supportive side of make up and beauty. I was so thrilled to take part and wanted to chat a little bit more about it.

For a while I’ve been doing that super annoying thing that people do where they say things like: ‘working on a secret project today, I can’t say anything about it but all will be revealed…!’ I’m very aware that this is the most irritating thing ever, but I was so excited and desperately wanted to share the news with you but I wasn’t allowed. Until today…! I’m so, so thrilled to announce that I’m going to be appearing on the new Channel 4 programme, Katie Piper’s Face To Face!

So far in my ‘5 Best…’ series we’ve covered cleansers and moisturisers, so next up is one of the most exciting posts in the series: 5 best budget exfoliators. I can hear you laughing at the back, and yes I’m aware that exfoliators don’t *sound* that exciting but hear me out! If you don’t currently use one, or use it sporadically, then I can guarantee that when used regularly it can transform the skin. A good exfoliator makes you look healthier, less tired, helps with blemishes and, as a result, make up sits better on the skin. I have a lot to say about this topic so grab a cuppa and a biscuit!

About a month ago I posted an introduction to Avène Tolérance EXTRÊME. It’s a really exciting launch and one that is very different to many of the other things that come across my desk. If you want a more in depth look at the thinking behind the range then you can read my introduction post HERE. As I’ve now been using the products for over a month I wanted to give you a more in-depth review.

If anything is guaranteed to get me excited, it’s skincare. I used to hate anything to do with skin because my rosacea would flare up at the drop of a hat. I was terrified and so I just used the same products over and over and tried to ignore the reactions, as I felt it was better the devil you know. I have now reached a point where I know my skin a lot better and actually look forward trying new products as I am so excited to find the next thing my skin loves. Do you want to hear all of the products I’ve discovered in my July Skincare Shake Up?
