We’ve all been there: you feel so grotty that the thought of dragging your feverish body out of bed to the bathroom to wash your face makes you physically shudder. Don’t worry, I’m here to help and share my best skincare tips for when you’re ill.
Rosacea and summer… one of the worst combinations for me. I’m not great in the sun anyway, due to being the colour of a yoghurt ghost, but the humid, clammy heat on top of that? No, thank you. But after 18 years of having rosacea, I’ve gathered some incredible tips that will help you manage the warmer months without losing your mind or damaging your skin.
At least once a week I’m asked for ‘the one thing that helped my rosacea’. I understand the impulse: everyone wants something immediate, something tangible, something simple that they can do to make a huge impact. But every time, I have to tell them the very boring and probably frustrating answer: there wasn’t one single thing. But that doesn’t mean that there’s no hope.
This month marks the 5th annual Rosacea Awareness Month. Although I’ve been talking about rosacea on this site for 7 years, it’s really only in the past 2 years that there’s been a noticable shift in the conversation.
