Some of you may know that I’ve set myself a reading challenge this year (through GoodReads if you would like to join in). I am aiming to read 52 books in 2019, and I’m currently on track having read 33 so far. I have quite varied taste in books – I always have a crime/murder/ghost story book on the go but apart from that I am pretty open to anything.
This is the second instalment in my new blog series, How Do I Look? I have written so much about rosacea in the past 6 years and I wanted to open the conversation about skin positivity and visible differences to cover lots of different topics. Every week I am going to be talking to inspirational and interesting people to share their stories and experiences to help and support others.
In today’s post I interview the amazing Sofia Grahn, a skin positivity and acne advocate from Sweden. She only started sharing her story publicly a year ago, but has already become a wonderfully uplifting and important voice within the acne community. I absolutely love this interview and hope you do too.
‘Tis the season for summer city breaks, beach holidays, or escaping to cooler climes. A few months ago I put some of my rosacea-friendly travel tips on instagram stories and had SO many questions afterwards, so I thought I would put all of my tips in one post.
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!
