What is rosacea: Why I wear make up.

April is Global Awareness Month for rosacea and I’ve been doing some blog posts to share my story and give some advice that I wish I had been given when I was in the early stages. You can read my blog on my diagnosis HERE, read about lifestyle changes I made to manage my flare ups HERE. I have also written about the skincare that helps me to keep everything under control. But first I wanted to talk about why I wear make up, covering the psychological aspects of rosacea and how these form an (often overlooked) part of the disease.

March ’15 Beauty and Lifestyle Favourites

March was a good and a bad month. It started to get a bit lighter and my make up reflects that which is always exciting. We got back from Japan in the middle of February and my skin has a complete breakdown. March was the month of sorting my skin out so it was happy again.

Pure Daily Skin Care from Marks and Spencer

Today I want to introduce you to my current favourite skin care product: the Pure Daily Skin Care Super Active Overnight Oil from Marks and Spencer. This is such a favourite of mine that when I saw my bottle was running out I had to repurchase as I was scared what would happen to my skin if I didn’t!

And weirdly I have no idea where the original bottle came from. It arrived in an unmarked jiffy bag with no note! It could be a competition prize, a free sample, a PR sample… I have no idea. And it’s super frustrating as I bloody LOVE this stuff!

An Introduction To Burt’s Bees

September marked 30 years since Burt’s Bees began selling their amazing products and I have somehow managed to live that whole time without trying any. I’m not really sure why as I love that all of their products are so natural. It all started with a lip balm and has now grown into a full range with gorgeous products.
