Pinterest recently set me the challenge of creating some 10 minute make up tutorials, as part of their ‘Stay INspired’ campaign. As we’re all stuck at home at the moment, many people are turning to Pinterest for inspiration, entertainment, and information. The two videos I filmed are linked below, and I’ve also added all of the product information and some tips for application. Which is your favourite?
Although I have had rosacea for 15 years, I am still learning new things about it all the time. I try to follow knowledgable people so that I can continue to not only expand my understanding of rosacea, but so I can bring it to you as well. So when the lovely Dr Alia Ahmed sent me an email letting me know about a recent article she wrote for Consulting Room magazine, I was thrilled. I’d heard people mention Neurogenic Rosacea before but was pretty clueless as to what it meant…
As you will know if you have rosacea, one of the biggest triggers is stress… so it stands to reason that I’ve had an upswing in messages, comments, and emails from fellow sufferers who have seen their skin becoming more irritated, flare ups becoming more regular and more severe. Annoyingly, another common trigger seems to be the face masks that people are wearing to protect themselves and others. Carry on reading for some tips on how to minimise the impact of face masks on your skin…
We are nearly at the end of Rosacea Awareness Month 2020 – I can’t believe it! This month I decided that all of my How Do I Look? posts should focus on rosacea and I have loved conducting these interviews. I find it fascinating how different we all are, but that so many similar experiences, emotions, and realities run through all of our stories.
Today’s interview is with the incredible Hallie. I first discovered her when I asked instagram for recommendations for other skin positivity accounts, and had an immediate influx from her passionate followers sending me her way. Her feed is honest, joyful, and fascinating: I hope you find this interview all three of those things.
I still find it hard to accept that I was diagnosed with rosacea 15 years ago. I’ve now been dealing with this skin condition for longer than I was even aware of my skin. Until I was about 20, I didn’t understand what healthy skin meant, or the way that your appearance could impact your life, emotions, and happiness. I’ve learned so much about rosacea in the past 15 years and have been sharing it with you for the past 7 years (this post is the mothership of all rosacea information if you want a full summary).
So here’s my list: 15 things I’ve learned in 15 years of rosacea. I hope you find it useful, feel free to share your advice and thoughts in the comments below.
