I find, having rosacea, skincare can sometimes be a bit hit and miss for me. I have my trusty favourites but I hate trying anything new in case it causes a flare-up.
Happy February everyone, congratulations for surviving all 257 days of January!! January always feels so long, doesn’t it? But now it’s over, we have spring to look forward to and lighter evenings!!
Well 2020 felt like a whole bloody decade crammed into a year, didn’t it? Things were going pretty great, then the first lockdown happened and life hasn’t really been normal since.
If you’re looking for a high-end beauty product for a Christmas present for someone you love this year (or even just a treat for yourself), I might have just the thing!
I’ll admit I’m not very consistent when it comes to shaving my legs and other bits, because it’s a bit of a bloody chore. I hate having to clean the razor afterwards and I hate how quickly the hair grows back and gets to that itchy stage along the bikini line. I used to buy cheap disposable razors which probably didn’t help the issue either.
Then along came Estrid.
Poapoa are a UK-based skincare company whose products are vegan, made from natural, hand-blended ingredients and are free from sulfates, parabens and synthetics 🙂
I’ve now been working at home for the past three months, which is longer than I was working in the office for!! It’s kind of become the new norm but it’s still been a bit of a struggle. I’ve now been referred for CBT therapy to help with my anxiety and I really hope it helps!! June hasn’t been all bad though; I’ve started going out for walks again and had loads of chats with my mum and dad which has really helped!!
The end of April/beginning of May didn’t exactly go particularly well for me. I was really struggling with anxiety so I ended up having to phone my GP and got put on Sertraline. The side effects made me feel pretty sick for the first week but luckily I started taking them over the bank holiday weekend (and I’d taken the Monday off which I was super grateful for) so I mostly sat on the sofa watching Murder, She Wrote! Thankfully I’m now starting to feel less sick and less anxious all the time.
Well, April was an absolute shit show, wasn’t it? I was ill at the end of March and then lockdown happened. Life completely changed overnight and, I’m not going to lie, some days have been an absolute struggle in terms of my anxiety. I’m trying to look at the positives though; my friends and family are all okay and I’m grateful that I can work from home.
I really hope that you’re all okay too and I’m sending you lots of love ❤️❤️
