How Do I Look? Amara On Eczema

I am really enjoying writing this new blog series, How Do I Look? I’m learning so much about different skin conditions and visible differences, and that’s completely down to the honesty and openness of the people I’m interviewing. I’ve been banging the skin positivity drum for a while, starting with my own experiences with rosacea, but every week I am going to be talking to a different inspirational and interesting person, sharing their story and experiences to help and support others.

Today’s interview is with Amara, who has eczema. Amara is a journalist and we first ‘met’ when she interviewed me for a piece on rosacea a few years ago, and we bonded over the lack of media representation of people with anything less than perfect skin. I love following her on instagram as she not only shares candid updates on her skin, as well as the emotional impact it has on her, but she also doesn’t let her skin dictate her amazing outfit choices.

In My Skin: Talking Rosacea On The Radio

A couple of months ago I was approached by BBC5 Live to ask if I wanted to take part in their In My Skin series: they were focusing on skin conditions and the impact these can have on people. I recorded a short video with them and then last week I went on the radio to chat further about my rosacea.

My Trip to Avène #DiscoverAvène

A few weeks ago I was invited to go to Avène with … Avène. It was my first press trip and I was embarrassingly excited. I was a bit nervous as I didn’t know anyone else going and wasn’t sure what to expect but couldn’t wait to go. Want to hear all about my trip to Avène, complete with photos of the most ridiculously beautiful scenery? Let’s go!
