Christmas Nail Art: Baubles

It feels like a lifetime ago that I started this blog to chronicle my love for manicures and nail art. I often think about changing my blog name so it reflects the wider topics I talk about now, but I think I’d be sad to let go of my nail blogger roots. So of course, I couldn’t let the festive season come and go without doing some Christmas nail art… I’m hoping to do a few looks but here is the first: Christmas baubles!

How Do I Look? Shankar on Vitiligo

I can’t quite believe that this is the tenth instalment in my How Do I Look? series. I have been talking about rosacea on my blog and social media for 6+ years and feel so passionately about skin positivity and diversity in the appearances we are shown in the media and what is considered ‘attractive’. So I wanted to use my platform, privilege, and reach to educate people and amplify the voices of others. So far I’ve spoken to people with acne, psoriasis, scars, eczema, hair loss, and birthmarks – all posts are linked at the very bottom of this post – and today I have a new story for you.

I’m so pleased to share my interview with Shankar Jalota, better known online as The Vitiligo Man. He was amazingly open with me, covering make up, mental health, and the media representation of vitiligo. I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did.

Read my interview with the incredible Shankar Jalota (otherwise known as The Vitiligo Man) - a vitiligo model and skin positivity advocate. He talks about wearing make up to cover vitiligo, the impact of skin on mental health and the media visibility of vitiligo. #talontedlex #thevitiligoman #bodypositivity #skinpositivity

#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!)
