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

Simple Eye Make-up Remover

Hello People

 

Its been a while and i cant say i havent missed you all its been a odd few months

A few days ago i lost my glasses couldn’t find them anywhere looked high and low no glasses to been (seen) HE HE HE HE HE.

So i had to make an appointment to see my optician where she gave me an eye test .

And i was so shocked to find out that she found out i have blepharitis which i must say i didn’t have a clue what that was .

so she explained Blepharitisa is a common condition where the edges of the eyelids (eyelid margins) become red and swollen (inflamed). Blepharitis can develop at any age, and symptoms can include: itchy, sore and red eyelids that stick together. crusty or greasy eyelashes. a burning, gritty sensation in your eyes.

This meant i had to change and start an eye routine day and night for the rest of my life  which entails an multi action eye wash systane eye drops hot compress and blephaclean wipes .plus i had to change what i clean my eye makeup off with .

So i went in to sainsburys while doing my shopping and picked up Simple eye makeup remover.

Here is where my review comes lol .

I just used simple eye makeup remover to take off todays makeup and wow two hard wipes and the makeup was gone i still cant believe it and it also didn’t hurt my eyes .

I think if your having trouble or your bored of your eye makeup remover you should try Simple its fab.

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 Summer Holiday Top 5 Must Haves

yo yo yo people

I am due to be going on my summer holidays very soon (woohoo) and thought i would share with you guys my summer holidays shopping list here we go !!!!!!!!!!

1.Liz Earle Flight Essentials Kit
The agonies of handing over your precious bottles of face lotions at airport security are over, with a new flush of under-100ml kits on the market. Liz Earle’s is one of the best. It contains her soothing balm, moisturiser, hand cream and floral facial spray. They’re small enough to carry on the plane and large enough to get you through your holiday. Great value, lizearle.com

2 Bumble and bumble surf spray This saltwater based styling spray adds volume and texture to the hair to create a sexy, wind-blown feel. Its salt-infused formula adds fullness, hold, and a cool, matte finish. Salt water is no secret to editorial stylists for adding volume and texture, and anyone who has been in the ocean knows of that salty, sexy, sun-dried, wind-styled feel (that seems such a shame to wash out). So while Bumble and bumble hasn’t exactly bottled the real thing, they’ve replicated and improved it, including seaweed and kelp extracts to enhance moisture. Spring hair is known for a relaxed, fuss-free look; with this spray, you can quickly and easily create a hairstyle that looks effortless and casual. spacenk.co.uk

3.Illamasqua lip stick
This gorgeous (and totally on trend) orange shade makes a nice change from all the drying matte formulas out there. It has a satin finish and is intensely pigmented – the perfect combo. Illamasqua.com

4.Nivea Sun Protect & Refresh Invisible Cooling Mist
Provides immediate protection and has a pleasurable cooling effect that leaves your skin refreshed. It is easily applied: the transparent, non-greasy spray in quickly absorbed and leaves no white marks on your skin. superdrug.com

5.Garnier Ambre Solaire BB Cream sun protection, especially for the face and neck. Enriched with Vitamin E. Tinted formula – blends naturally with your skin tone.boots.com

i hope my top five help you sort your holiday lists out all thats left for me to say is happy summer holidays !!!!!!!!!!
