Chronic Beauty


About my blog

I'm a more mature blogger, and miss working in the beauty/holistic health industry, having to give up when my chronic pain worsened. As I enjoy writing and photography, I chose to create this blog and utilise my passion and knowledge for all things beauty. Plus it helps take my mind off my illness. Although I love using makeup, I am passionate about good skincare, along with holistic health. So, I share honest product reviews and tips, for fellow beauty fans and chronic pain sufferers. Loving fashion accessories, I also feature some style posts and a little bit of lifestyle. Hopefully, my blog encourages others that they can look and feel good, no matter what age, health or lifestyle.

About me

I started Chronic Beauty, as I missed the industry I worked in, having to give up due to chronic pain illness. I worked as a self-employed beauty and aromatherapy/massage therpaist, plus as a Decleor therapist in a country hotel spa, plus salons prior to that. I had a few different work environments in the past, plus studied as a mature student at university.

I'm married and live in the country with my husband and dog. I'm a complete beauty product addict, a tea drinker and motorbike racing fan. I find working on my blog helps me escape from chronic pain, whilst keeping me up to date with the beauty industry, plus I can utilise my knowledge and passion. Although my illness may hold me up at times, I love being able to help others with info/products to look and feel good.
