Start Where You Are: Rosacea And Denial

I wanted to say up front that I don’t want to upset people, or cause offence, with this post. I’ve wanted to write about denial for a long time but I have struggled to word it in a way I’m happy with because I was worried about upsetting someone. So I’m just going to write it as though I was talking to my sister or my friend: sometimes tough love is what we need.

Are you in denial about your rosacea? I've written about how denial can be useful, but why it's stopping you taking control of your skin. How to help your rosacea, how to heal your rosacea. #talontedlex #rosacea #rosaceatips

Explaining The New Rosacea Classifications

I try to follow the latest news and updates when it comes to rosacea and I’ve been wanting to write a post addressing the changes to the rosacea classifications for a while… but every time I sit down to write I get bogged down in the scientific jargon and lose interest! But I’ve finally done it – I’ve waded through numerous scientific papers and press releases and broken things down in layman’s terms.

Tips For Building Confidence With Rosacea

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you may have heard me mention that April is Rosacea Awareness Month. Of course, I talk about rosacea throughout the year and am very vocal about its impact on my life, self-esteem, and day to day habits. But I always look forward to April rolling around because it is a chance for wider conversations in the media to take place. I believe that if we can improve education and understanding in the general population our lives as sufferers would be positively impacted. Which is why I’m really pleased to be joining forces with Galderma and Beyond The Visible on their #RosaceaNoFilter campaign this year. Read more about this below and find out how you can get involved at the bottom of the post.

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.

Living With Someone With Rosacea: My Husband’s Story

It is the last day of Rosacea Awareness Month today and I wanted to write a post that I’ve been pondering about for a while. I spend a lot of time thinking about my rosacea and trying to come to terms with the way it makes me feel, act, and how I see myself. But – as with any condition that changes the way you live your life – I have spent a lot of time wondering how my rosacea effects other people, namely my husband.
