How Do I Look? Michelle Elman (@scarrednotscared)

I am really excited to introduce my new blog series, How Do I Look? I have been blogging about rosacea for over 6 years and my passion for skin positivity (and the wider discussion around visible differences) is slowly breaking through to the mainstream conversation. I wanted to talk to exciting and interesting people, who are sharing their stories and experiences to help and inspire others.

We are starting with the fantastic and wise Michelle Elman. You may know her from the viral photo that sparked her Scarred Not Scared campaign, when she posted a photo of herself in a bikini with the title ‘People With Scars Can’t Wear Bikinis’. Michelle had 15 surgeries in the space of 20 years and shares beautiful and honest images along with advice that inspires her followers to embrace themselves, in every way. She is also a trained body confidence coach, so when I say she is wise… she is really wise!

My Lip Filler Experience

I think a lot of people reading this post will be shocked to find out that a month ago I had lip fillers. There has been a huge rise in the number of people getting fillers in recent years, but I wanted to write this post to show that lip fillers can look subtle and natural and – in my case – can even be used to correct uneven lips.

Explaining The New Rosacea Classifications

I try to follow the latest news and updates when it comes to rosacea and I’ve been wanting to write a post addressing the changes to the rosacea classifications for a while… but every time I sit down to write I get bogged down in the scientific jargon and lose interest! But I’ve finally done it – I’ve waded through numerous scientific papers and press releases and broken things down in layman’s terms.
