Rosacea Awareness vs. Rosacea Acceptance

In case you didn’t know, April is Rosacea Awareness Month. I feel like I’ve been talking about rosacea forever, but I only finally got up the courage to talk openly about it on this blog in early 2013. Before then, this blog was a nail blog (hence the nail pun blog name…!): focusing on my hands meant that I never had to address my skin on the blog. I was terrified that someone would question me or make hurtful comments about my appearance, so I hid myself away.

April is Rosacea Awareness Month and I've written my thoughts on why awareness isn't good enough anymore. Skin positivity blogger, living with rosacea. Tips for rosacea management. #talontedlex

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!
