If you’ve seen this post about my dermatologist appointment and resulting skin changes, you’ll know that the final straw before seeing Dr Justine Kluk was the spread of my sebhorreic dermatitis. I’ve always had issues with my eyes due to ocular rosacea (you can read more about that HERE) but the changes became unbearable.
It has been a while since I’ve gone back to my manicure blog roots on here, but I’m excited to show you the Morgan Taylor ‘The Color Of Petals’ Collection today. The whole range was inspired by flowers and the soft pretty colours associated with them. If you’re a fan of subtle colours and soft shades this will be right up your street.
Every few months the Escentual French Pharmacy sale rolls around but this time I’ve been so caught up with Rosacea Awareness Month that I didn’t even realise that the sale had started. But do not fear, I’ve put together an updated list of my favourite French skincare bits in case you wanted to grab a last minute bargain (up to 1/3 off all French Pharmacy products so it’s worth stocking up!) and to also serve as a reference point in the future. French skincare has long been my go-to, so here’s a list of what I would recommend for anyone, but especially those with rosacea or sensitive skin.
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.
One of the most common questions in my inbox is ‘how do I find out what is making my rosacea flare up?’ It’s a fair question, but it’s also a BIG question. Rosacea is a tricky beast and one that requires a lot of attention and time, which many of us don’t have. So in order to help, I have designed a Rosacea Flare Up Diary, which you can download below.
(P.S I’ve also designed a Rosacea Triggers Checklist, there’s more information about that at the bottom of the page!)
