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.

I try a lot of products and tend to jump around depending on season, stress levels, how my rosacea is feeling, and general vibes. But if you’re looking for some warm weather appropriate moisturisers for rosacea, this post is for you!
