This month the Beauty Blogger of Central Florida are spread awareness of Lupus. I did not know much about this disease until this group because one of ours members has it. This month is Lupus awareness month so I read a little about it and also #PutOnPurple for it!
What is lupus?
“Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body (skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body). Chronic means that the signs and symptoms tend to last longer than six weeks and often for many years.
In lupus, something goes wrong with your immune system, which is the part of the body that fights off viruses, bacteria, and germs (“foreign invaders,” like the flu). Normally our immune system produces proteins called antibodies that protect the body from these invaders. Autoimmune means your immune system cannot tell the difference between these foreign invaders and your body’s healthy tissues (“auto” means “self”) and creates autoantibodies that attack and destroy healthy tissue. These autoantibodies cause inflammation, pain, and damage in various parts of the body.
Lupus is also a disease of flares (the symptoms worsen and you feel ill) and remissions (the symptoms improve and you feel better).”
Today we are helping with awareness and showing off our purple posts! I will be showing you my new purple polish!
I finally understand the big hype with KB Shimmer. I’ve bought a couple of polishes from them in the last month and I am in LOVE. Today I am showing you Iris My Case, the play on words is so creative!
Pictured is 3 coats. I am in love with this pastel purple with lots of small and medium sized purple, white, pink, and blue glitters floating around! I love how this looks. I have gotten so many compliments from strangers whenever I have this on. The glitters were not hard to find at all and were pretty even with just brushing them on, VERY IMPRESSED.
Take a look at the other posts from the fabulous ladies of The Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida. PS- I LOVE LOVE our little group 🙂
