Let’s talk about Vitiligo. My husband has Vitiligo, and I’ve seen it weigh him down over the years. We’ve never been able to find a treatment for his Vitiligo, and no one has the answers as to why he has Vitiligo; since a young boy, he’s been seeing an increase in white spots appearing. Finally, we’ve found Dermablend Professional, full camouflage makeup for Vitiligo.
What is Vitiligo?
Vitiligo is a condition in which the skin loses its pigment cells (melanocytes). This can result in white patches in different areas of the body, including the skin, hair, and retina. Most cases are non-segmental, meaning they affect both sides like a mirror image. In these cases, the affected area of the skin typically expands with time.
There is no known cure for vitiligo.
It’s Not Just Visual – Vitiligo Is A Mental Game
While you may think of Vitiligo as a skin disorder, however, it can affect how a person views themselves. It’s natural for people to stare and you can see them process quickly and turn away from glaring. It’s moments like that that make it hard for someone with Vitiligo to find acceptance within. I don’t notice my husbands Vitiligo, neither does anyone who loves him. Although it’s only visual to us, Vitiligo is a mental game that requires positive self-talk when you look in the mirror.
Micheal Jackson had Vitiligo and was constantly criticized for changing the color of his skin.
“I have a skin disorder that destroys the pigmentation of my skin, it’s something that I cannot help. OK?” – Michael Jackson
Model Chantelle Brown-Young (aka Winnie Harlow) also has Vitiligo says it well
“I had to relearn how to love myself by forgetting the opinions of everyone else and focusing on my opinion of myself.” – Winnie Harlow
Thank you, to Deramblend Professional, it’s a little easier to avoid stares when Dermablend becomes apart of your routine.
Dermablend Professional Full Camouflage Makeup For Vitiligo
My husband’s hands are where he’s been seeing an increase in his Vitiligo; he uses Dermablend Professional on his hands daily. Being a germaphobe, I wasn’t sure how well Dermablend would last him during his day at the office. When applied right, following the suggested steps, products including Dermablend Professional Loose Setting Powder, Dermablend Professional continues to last all day; even after washing his hands. 16 hours of coverage is possible giving my husband the confidence when he is clicking away on his keypad.
Note: Dermablend Professional Loose Setting Powder is what sets the color, and without this step, we found the coverage didn’t last all day. Again, make sure you follow the steps and use all the suggested products for coverage.

How to apply Dermablend Professional Full Camouflage Makeup For Vitiligo.
He uses Dermablend to take the glow away from his hands, not as a full coverage, although you can. He applies a light coating that smoothes the stark white patches into a mild blend into his natural skin tone. I’m pleased he’s found a routine that helps with his confidence. Everyone is different, and as much as I accept him just the way he is, he’s the one who feels the stares and Dermablend Professional helps him avoid those awkward moments.
Finding The Right Dermablend Professional Shade
The hardest part of using Dermablend Professional is finding the right color. Since my husband tans very quickly in the summer, we had a hard time finding colors that matched his newly summer tan, and his Winter skin before Mr. Sunshine came out. We did use Dermablends shade finder, but if you’re unsure I’d highly recommend you check out your local Shoppers Drug Mart and get a professional to help you out with finding a shade.
I’ve even used his Dermablend Professional products a couple of times myself when my chin broke out with a couple of pimples. Our son has a scar on his face, and out of curiosity we gave Dermablend a try, and it covered it up nicely. The most important part of the process is choosing the right shade for your skin tone.
Dermablend Professional offers face, body make-up in full or medium coverage and is sold at participating Shoppers Drug Mart stores. You can layer coverage or minimize coverage, you choose what works for you and your needs. We will continue to welcome Dermablend Professional in our household for all our camouflage needs.
