What is Blepharitis 

Hello people 
Hope your all having a great day 

On my twitter account people have been asking me what blepharitis is so because of that I’m going to do a blog post on it I’m not saying i no all about it but what i do no i will share with you 
Here goes 

What is Blepharitis 

Blepharitis is inflammation of the rims of the eyelids, which causes them to become red and swollen. It is a common condition which can develop at any age but is more common in young children and people over 50. Most people experience repeated episodes followed by periods with no symptoms. It is not possible to catch blepharitis from someone else who has it.
How Blepharitis affects you 

The symptoms of blepharitis can include: burning, soreness or stinging in the eyes; crusty eyelashes and itchy eyelids. It can also cause lid cysts (chalazion). The cause of blepharitis is not known in most cases but, although it is not an infection, it can be caused by a reaction to the bacteria that live naturally on the eyelid skin. It is more common in skin conditions such as:
Seborrhoeic dermatitis, which causes an itchy rash on the skin and scalp (seborrhoeic dermatitis of the scalp is called dandruff)

Rosacea which causes the face to appear red and blotchy

Acne in teenager and young adults, which cases irritation and blockage of the glands in the centre of the face

Blepharitis is not usually serious, but can produce a lot of symptoms and can make people unable to wear contact lenses comfortably.
Many people with blepharitis also have dry eye condition where the eyes do not produce enough tears or dry out too quickly.
Serious complications, such as sight loss, are rare, particularly if recommended advice is followed.

Treatment 

Blepharitis is usually a long-term (chronic) condition, which means once it develops it can cause repeated episodes. 
There is no cure for blepharitis, but establishing a daily eyelid-cleaning routine can help control the symptoms and any dryness can be treated with artificial tear drops. Lid cleaning often needs to be continued indefinitely to prevent recurrence.
More severe cases of blepharitis may require treatment with antibiotic ointment applied to the eyelids or, antibiotic drops for the eyes and, in a few cases, steroid eye drops.
Some patients benefit from antibiotics by mouth, particularly when the blepharitis is associated with a skin condition such as rosacea, These antibiotics are usually required for at least four to six weeks and may need to be continued for many months.
All that was the information i found very helpful when i found out i had it 
Hope it helps 
Hugs 
Helen

September favourites 2014

Hi Friends

 

I can’t believe its already the end of another month they seem to come so fast and i can’t believe its the start of october my birthday month already which i must say is exciting !!!!!!!

In this favourites i have only picked the products i have been using  through the whole of September and been loving so much . Don’t forget at the end of the blog post there will be a part where i put down where i got all my favs from x

 

1. Avon Luck Perfume giftset

 

1411585712_thumb.jpeg

 

I have been in love with this perfume ever since my avon rep gave me it to try last month and haven’t stopped using it i have done a blog post on this so i will leave it there lol

 

2. Avon Anew vitale skincare kit

FullSizeRender

I was asked by my avon rep if i could try avon skincare out as a lot of people was asking her about the range so i said ok .Ihave been using Anew vitale for the whole of september and i nut say friends i haven’t looked or missed my old skincare at all in this little pack you get to try day and night cream and there eye treatment plus there gel cleanser . I have really funny skin one day its ok and spot free and the next i have a few painful spots but since using this skincare i can say i have seen any spots for a very long time i think I’m going to have to stay with this skincare for now .

3.Soap&Glory kick ass concealer

FullSizeRender

 

I have had this concealer for so long  and never dreamed of using it but the other day i was looking for a sealing powder and came across this concealer which happens to have all in one pot so i tried it out and wow it was so great i told all my friends about on twitter and email they must have been like what she on lol . Its amazing undereye brightening concealer, an ‘on the spot’ as-you-need-it complexion concealer, and a weightless transparent setting powder makes you feel fab .

4. Mac mineralize skinfinish natural

FullSizeRender

Most will be familiar with the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish be it the natural line which is more of a finishing powder and in my opinion the more popular range is the shimmer based MAC Mineralize Skinfinishes which tend to be used as blushes or as highlighters. Anyway the point I’m trying to make is that they share identical packaging – large, round and plastic with a transparent window that displays the shade inside.

5. Tanya Burr Lipgloss

FullSizeRender

My friends on twitter couldn’t wait for me to try the wonderful tanya burr range .So i went to superdrug and got two of her lip glosses one was called afternoon tea which is a pink/light brown colour and the other one was called picnic in the park which is a bright pink colour At first, I thought that this was just going to be a thin gloss, but actually, it comes out really nice and thick, like a glossy lipstick. and tanya should be very happy is her range is great .

 

where to buy

Luck /is sold at avon.com priced at £15.00

Anew vitale skincare kit is sold at avon.com priced at £9.00

Soap and Glory kick ass concealer is sold at boots unsure on price

Tanta Burr lipgloss is sold at superdrug priced at £6.00 each

My sister had a hand and arm massage and said :it was lovely i had never been to a shop like liz Earle before as I’m not a girly girl i didn’t take care of my skin before the liz earle visit but that Visit changed my skincare way of thinking and now i shower in liz earle ginger and bergamot Shower gel and then i use the ginger and bergamot body cream and it leaves my skin so fresh and feeling young .

Wow thats great to see my sister is now looking after her skin now on to my mother  before the visit My mother was founding it hard to live with her ageing skin she had tried loads of ageing products And didn’t feel they did anything she was looking forward to her liz earle visit and had high hopes so I asked if she could have two treatments a neck and back massage and hand and arm massage and The staff there was great they said it wasn’t a problem .so they gave her both massages and i asked Her after to put in to words how she liked her visit and she said i can’t believe i have found the Products i have been looking for since the year dot I’m over the moon they used energising body Scrub and super skin body cream on my hands and arms i was so pleased how my skin turned out baby soft skin) i went on to buy both scrub and cream and i use them both on a daily bases  also i had a neck and back massage they used some type of oil which i can’t remember The name of but was so relaxing i would like to thanx the team for helping me sort out my Skincare and I’m going to tell all my friends about this great brand .
