Doing the New52 dance

I've been battling rosacea and major sensitive skin for a couple of years and one of the things that I had very high on my list of new things to do for the year was to find a skin care regimen that actually works for me. I have tried countless brands from the department store make up counters and home remedies. All with the same result; absolutely no change what so ever. So I figured it was time for professional help (lol, took me long enough eh).

So the new thing this week was an appointment with a dermatologist, facial treatment, and shiny bottles in my bathroom cabinets.

As with all cronic issues, rosacea hasn't gone poof away, and mysteriously I don't look like Penelope Cruz yet, but I'm giving this a shot, hoping at least it will help a little.


  1. Finding the right skin care product can be such a mine-field and there's many a heartache along the way, but I'm pleased to read you've taken the plunge & seen a dermatologist & I hope the new products work for you!

  2. You really make skin care look beautiful - what a gorgeous photo! Good for you for visiting the dermatologist, it's something I've also had on my list for years but it always seems like something I can put off. Hope the new regimen works well for you!

  3. As someone who has a skin allergy around her eyes/cheeks and cannot find anything except for almond oil which doesn't bring me out in blisters, you have my sympathy. Hope this works for you, and a great New 52!

  4. I occasionally get itchy so I can't imagine what you go through.

    I hope this new regimen works for you. Good luck!

  5. those bottles look so pretty! i hope this works for you. at 33, i just started this year to use eye cream and moisturiser every day- hope i haven't left it too late!
