Live on Radio Solent: ️Back to School Summer Special

OMG – I was live on the radio in the actual studio! I have chatted with BBC Radio Solent presenter Lucy Ambache several times over the past couple of years.

What is rosacea?

April is Rosacea Awareness Month, so it seemed like to perfect time to dive in and answer the question, ‘What is rosacea?’ 🤔 Many of my clients don’t even realise they have rosacea.

It mainly affects people with fair skin, but it can affect all skin types. It usually occurs in people aged 40 to 60 years old.
