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.

What is rosacea: skincare and learning to work around rosacea

The penultimate and final blogs in the mini-series are possibly the most requested blog for me: the products I use to treat my skin and the make-up I use to cover my rosacea. Here are my tips on skincare and learning to work around rosacea. Warning: this is a long one. Get a cup of (lukewarm) tea and some biscuits and settle down…
