Well I bet that’s a contender for the weirdest blog title you’ve read today! There are many ways I keep control of my rosacea: changing my diet, adapting my lifestyle, carefully selecting my skincare. But day to day I have had to learn how to cope with the way that rosacea affects me mentally. So I decided to share with you how blue lipstick helps me cope with rosacea… stick with me, it will all become clear!
Last Tuesday I appeared on Channel 4 on Katie Piper’s Face To Face, a programme dedicated to raising awareness of different facial conditions and talking about the empowering and supportive side of make up and beauty. I was so thrilled to take part and wanted to chat a little bit more about it.
I was diagnosed with rosacea 17 years ago and I’ve been talking about it on my blog for about eight years. It’s still crazy to me that it’s not as well-known as it should be – there are millions of people worldwide with this condition and, in my opinion, it should be as widely recognisable as acne or psoriasis. April is Rosacea Awareness Month and, as always, I’ll be doing a few posts about different issues related to the condition but I thought I would update this GIGANTIC post containing all the rosacea FAQs that I get every day from people all over the world. I’ve built up so much knowledge and advice in countless blog posts, so this post has become a central hub that I can direct people to. Please ask questions in the comments below, and I will keep adding to this rosacea FAQs post as we go along!
For a while I’ve been doing that super annoying thing that people do where they say things like: ‘working on a secret project today, I can’t say anything about it but all will be revealed…!’ I’m very aware that this is the most irritating thing ever, but I was so excited and desperately wanted to share the news with you but I wasn’t allowed. Until today…! I’m so, so thrilled to announce that I’m going to be appearing on the new Channel 4 programme, Katie Piper’s Face To Face!
You have probably seen the media banging on about the ‘feud’ between Helen Mirren and Charlotte Tilbury regarding make up and ‘to wear or not to wear’ – because, you know, two women can’t disagree without it being a feud, right? *look to camera*
