Confidence And ‘Flaws’

Over the past year I’ve noticed an increase in the amount of questions I get about confidence. The rise of the skin positivity movement and a growing acceptance (at least inside our communities) of different skin types and appearances is wonderful, but it leaves some people feeling anxious or left behind. People want to be skin positive, they would love to embrace their natural skin, but have no idea how to learn to accept the flaws that they’ve disliked for so long.

If you watched my recent Instagram Live with Bioderma, I touched on the topic of confidence a little and so you might recognise the themes below.

Start Where You Are: Rosacea And Denial

I wanted to say up front that I don’t want to upset people, or cause offence, with this post. I’ve wanted to write about denial for a long time but I have struggled to word it in a way I’m happy with because I was worried about upsetting someone. So I’m just going to write it as though I was talking to my sister or my friend: sometimes tough love is what we need.

Are you in denial about your rosacea? I've written about how denial can be useful, but why it's stopping you taking control of your skin. How to help your rosacea, how to heal your rosacea. #talontedlex #rosacea #rosaceatips

Tips For Building Confidence With Rosacea

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you may have heard me mention that April is Rosacea Awareness Month. Of course, I talk about rosacea throughout the year and am very vocal about its impact on my life, self-esteem, and day to day habits. But I always look forward to April rolling around because it is a chance for wider conversations in the media to take place. I believe that if we can improve education and understanding in the general population our lives as sufferers would be positively impacted. Which is why I’m really pleased to be joining forces with Galderma and Beyond The Visible on their #RosaceaNoFilter campaign this year. Read more about this below and find out how you can get involved at the bottom of the post.
