Care for sensitive red skin – part 1

  Summer is here and I love it! This weekend it will be about 30 degrees in Belgium and I can get used to these warm temperatures. But there’s one thing I hate about Summer: I suffer from very dry and red skin. I have sensitive skin and a slight form of rosacea, it means those fine red vascular lines are visible on my facial skin and I do have red spots on my cheeks.

Beauty and the bees I Is bee …

There are some weird ingredients in the world of skin care, but the idea of applying bee venom to my face never really came to my mind. Bees don’t have a particulary fond reputation – I remember when I was stung by a bee- but these little creatures do a lot of good for nature.
