Beauty Tips From a Part-Time Beekeeper, Full-Time Angel
Hello! I’m Georgah Crane – a model and assistant beekeeper from Australia. Beekeeping is a really beautiful practice and so much fun. I’ve been assisting for about a year and a half now with a natural beekeeper and I still learn something new every time. I reached out to them via Instagram and had just left a full-time job so I suddenly had lots of time on my hands to help out. Most days beekeeping is about checking in on the hive, are they doing well? Do they need more space or less? Are there pests bothering them? We only take honey if there is an excess, the health of the hive is the priority. It also means that I spend a lot of time in the sun so sunscreen is a must! I use the La Roche-Posay Anthelios fluid as it sinks into my skin and feels like another layer of moisture rather than a greasy film on top.
The journey to clear skin for me has been a long one, full of many expensive treatments, dermatology appointments and a shelf full of products. A few years ago my skin was covered in little blemishes that would take forever to heal and then leave hyperpigmentation marks that never seemed to fade. It took a huge toll on my self-confidence, especially working as a model, I felt that I had to apologise to every make-up artist for making their job harder.
Finally, after trying what seemed like everything, I made an appointment to talk about Accutane. It’s not for everyone, but it’s the only thing that has worked for me in the long term and even though I still get a breakout here or there, my skin is much more manageable now.
