How Do I Look? Sophie on Trichotillomania (hair pulling disorder)

Today’s interview is with Sophie, talking about her trichotillomania. Until I spoke to Sophie I had very little knowledge on this condition so I’m really pleased that I could chat to her and educate myself.

In case you’re new to my blog, I typically talk about my own skin condition (rosacea) but started this How Do I Look? series last year so that I could talk to others in the skin positivity community. I wanted to amplify voices, educate myself and others, and show the many faces of skin positivity. I hope you find these interviews as interesting as I do. There are links to all the previous interviews at the bottom of this page.

6 Easy Things You Can Change To Help Your Rosacea Today

Rosacea is a complicated beast: we’re still not sure what causes it, there’s still no cure, and everyone has different triggers. There are so many people out there willing to sell you courses or products to ‘heal’ or ‘cure’ your skin condition, but I wanted to go back to basics. I’ve put together an edit of 6 quick, easy and mostly free things that you can do today to help your rosacea.


6 easy ways to help your rosacea. Easy and (mostly) free things you can change to soothe your rosacea. Rosacea tips, rosacea advice. Skincare for sensitive skin, lifestyle changes for rosacea.

How Do I Look? P On Their Acne Conglobata

I’m so excited to kick off 2020 with this incredible interview. I’ve been a huge fan of P for their incredible work on Instagram: not only do they raise awareness of acne and help their followers feel more seen and accepted, but they write so beautifully and in such a raw way that it’s a pleasure to follow.

If you’re new to my How Do I Look? series – welcome! I have rosacea and have been blogging about it for over 6 years, but last year I decided that I should use this platform to show the many faces of skin positivity. So far I’ve spoken to people with vitiligo, psoriasis, scars, eczema, hair loss, birthmarks and more (links at the bottom of this post for each of them) and I want to keep going. Each interview teaches me something, makes me feel less alone, and shows me that although we may look different, we all have similar experiences.

I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did.

Read my interview with P (@mynameisjustp), acne and skin positivity hero. They talk about mental health, hormones, assumptions, and dealing with acne scars. #talontedlex #skinpositivity #acnepositivity

Best Books Of 2019

At the beginning of 2019 I set myself a reading challenge of 52 books. I wanted to push myself, to encourage myself to embrace a hobby that didn’t require a screen and I found that having that challenge in the back of my mind really helped to keep my motivated. (NB – Before people message me, I’ve called this the ‘best books of 2019’ although, as you’ll see, this list isn’t necessarily books that were published last year, just the ones that I read!)

Discover the 10 best books that I read in 2019. Wondering what to read next? Here's my list of the best books I've read in the past year. #talontedlex #bestbooks #bookreview2019 #bookrecommendations #whatimreading #booksoftheyear
