One of my fellow Migrainuers, Kelly, recently started a blog called Sincerely Sick Style that I am so excited about and thrilled to share with my readers. Her tag line reads:
A place for the sincerely and seriously sick to learn to fake looking well and how to take care of their skin, hair, nails, makeup, etc with the least amount of effort possible.Sincerely Sick Style is a unique blog that fills a need for those of us who are chronically ill: how do we look good while feeling terrible with minimal effort?
Throughout the four years I have known Kelly, I have witnessed our chronically ill buddies repeatedly go to her for beauty tips and product suggestions. Kelly has a treasure trove of invaluable tips and suggestions gleaned from her life experience as a chronically ill person.
In her most recent post, Winter Skin Fixes, I was happy to find out that the fact many of us chronic Migrainuers do not shower very often actually can be beneficial for our skin in the winter because we aren't removing our skin's natural oils. I bet with this knowledge, my non-chronically ill readers are now jealous of our community's dirty little secret of lack of showering, even though you may be cringing!
Sincerely Sick Style is easy to read and filled with links to products and contains useful information regardless of your illness status. I particularly appreciate that products that are also in a reasonable price range are recommended.
Check out Sincerely Sick Style which Kelly describes to be "a lifestyle blog about looking fabulous while feeling awful all of the time. My primary audience is people who suffer from chronic illness and therefore don't have a lot of time or energy to take care of their looks. But anyone can benefit from my advice on skin, hair, makeup and nails."
