Skincare Shake Up: June 2018 Edition

I typically post one Skincare Shake Up post a month to show you what I’m using and what has made the cut, but some of you have noticed that I skipped May. I had been trying a few new products and wanted to give them a little bit of time because summer weather and rosacea are not a fun combination at the best of times, but adding in unknown products? Potentially disastrous! So both of the skincare routines below have been in place for two months.

Skincare Shake Up: December 2017 Edition

Let me start with an apology – my Skincare Shake Up for December is a little bit late. In case you didn’t know, my blog was hacked over New Year. URGH. This would have been a faff and expensive to sort out at any time, but it happened while I was on holiday on the other side of the world… which made things so much more difficult! BUT, we are back up and running and so I’m finally getting to post all of the content I wanted to post while I was away. So please excuse the tardiness of this round up: here are the products that made up my skincare routine in December.

How To Winter-Proof Your Lips And Nails

Throughout my recent Talonted Lips and Tips challenge, the second most common question (after ‘how did you do that?!’) was ‘how on earth are your nails and lips surviving?’ Applying and removing layers of very matte lipstick can really dry out the lips, and the constant removal of nail varnish can leave your hands feeling stripped and parched… and this replicates a lot of the effects that cold and blustery weather has on the body. So here is a post all about how to winter-proof your lips and nails!

Sunscreens For Rosacea Sensitive Skin #RosaceaReview

Last month was Rosacea Awareness Month and the folks at Buzzfeed asked me to write an article about living with rosacea which you can read HERE. It went viral and has currently had over 550,000 views and so many people got in touch with me to share their stories of rosacea and many of them had questions. A recurring question was asking for recommendations for sunscreens for rosacea sensitive skin. I try to wear factor 50 any time that I’m in the sun but it is hard to find sunscreens that don’t smother or aggravate rosacea or reactive skin. So here are my top 7 favourite sunscreens for rosacea sensitive skin!
