#UndesirablesOfInstagram UPDATE

About 6 weeks ago I started the #UndesirablesOfInstagram campaign after discovering that Instagram/Facebook described skin conditions as ‘undesirable’ in their guidelines.

We got Instagram to change their guidelines!! Our recent #undesirablesofinstagram campaign was seen by instagram/facebook and it worked! The skin positivity community is amazing. Read more about the campaign by clicking the image. #talontedlex #rosacea #skinpositivity

Can A Humidifier Help Your Skin?

A few months ago I bought a humidifier to put in my bedroom to see if it would help me with my dry skin and I’m really excited to tell you about it. In the most basic terms, humidifiers add humidity (water content) to the air which can help in many ways. I have found a RIDICULOUSLY affordable humidifier and I’m sharing my tips for use below.

NB: If you live in a damp or humid area, this is not for you (instead you should look into getting a dehumidifier!)

Mental Health And Skin Conditions

Today is World Mental Health Day and I wanted to talk about the impact that skin conditions can have on mental health.

Mental health and the impact of skin conditions. The psychological side of skin conditions is commonly overlooked but it's often intertwined. I'm sharing my thoughts on the support needed for those suffering with skin conditions. #talontedlex #skincondition #rosacea #mentalhealth

How Do I Look? Judy on Sensitive Skin

Welcome to another How Do I Look? interview! I am fascinated by skin, visible differences and how others view themselves. I have rosacea but I wanted to open the conversation about skin positivity and visible differences so I can cover (and educate myself about) many different topics. Every week I am going to be talking to an inspirational and interesting person in order to share their story and experiences to educate, help, and support others.

Today’s post features Judy talking about her sensitive skin. ‘Sensitive skin’ is often used as a catch-all term, but it’s rare than people have truly sensitive skin. Judy is one of these people and also works as a beauty journalist (a job where you are required to constantly try new products and treatments) so I thought she would be a fascinating person to chat to.

An interview with Judy Johnson about her sensitive skin. We chat fragrance allergies, the difficulty of having sensitive skin when you work as a beauty journalist, and she shares her tips on how to minimise and calm sensitive skin. #talontedlex #sensitiveskin #sensitiveskintips #sensitiveskinskincare

‘Acne Lights’ Used To Target Teenagers

My lovely friend Beccy sent me this article from Dazed because she knows me incredibly well and knew that I would be enraged by it. In case you missed the story when it was in the news, some businesses and councils in the UK are using pink lights that accentuate acne to discourage teenagers from ‘loitering’ in public spaces.

(The news story originally came from The Telegraph but that’s behind a paywall so…)

Is it unethical to use 'acne lights' to discourage teenagers from loitering? I'm sharing my thoughts on the blog. Councils and businesses in the UK are using these 'acne lights' to target young people with skin conditions. Is it a human rights issue? #talontedlex #skinpositivity
