Preparation is key
Get everything ready before you start applying Vitiliglow™. Give yourself plenty of time as with any new product you are trying, it can take a few practice runs to get it right. Make sure you are in the bathroom and have good lighting and have an old towel and some wet- wipes to hand so that you can wipe excess product off your palms and from your fingernails.
Once you’re ready, remove the plastic ring from your bottle of Vitiliglow™ and give it a good shake. Once you’ve shaken it, allow it to stand for a couple of minutes to settle, or alternatively loosen the top slightly to release the pressure. Press the pump in to the palm of your hand or applicator sponge/brush (no more than the size of a 10p). A little goes a long way, so don’t put too much on and apply it in a thin layer to your white patches first, building up coverage with extra thin layers if needed then blend a little over the rest of the area of the body. Be careful going around joints such as knees and elbows, again apply it in thin, even layers.
In order for the product to be so rub-proof, it does need to dry very quickly so if you need more time to work with the liquid to blend it, you could either moisturise your skin well first or mix a small amount of moisturiser in with your Vitiliglow™.
Applying Vitiliglow™ to your face
When applying Vitiliglow™ to your face, I would recommend you moisturise normally before application. You could use either an applicator sponge or again, your fingertips would work just fine. Apply it to your white patches first, and you could try mixing a small amount of your usual moisturiser with Vitiliglow™ to cover your pigmented skin. Apply in thin, even layers over your white patches to build up coverage if required until you have achieved the desired result. You may want to rub over your eyebrows with a cotton wool pad/bud to make sure that the product hasn’t collected in that area.
Ready to go
Let Vitiliglow™ dry completely before getting dressed and use your old towel to buff off any excess product if necessary. You may find it takes a few goes to get your application method just right and it’s taken me years of trial and error with every product under the sun to be able to apply it so easily. I apply Vitiliglow™ every day before work and can now do it really quickly, so with a bit of practice, you can be ‘patch free looking’ every day in under 10 minutes.
Vitiliglow in the sun
This may be optimistic given all the rain recently, but can I please direct you to my blog post about protecting your skin in the sun. As you all know, the de-pigmented skin is very sensitive and although Vitiliglow™ has SPF30 within it, I would still recommend using a high factor or total block sunscreen underneath (or on top) of Vitiliglow™ and keep out of the sun as much as you possibly can.
Regular readers of my blog will know that it’s been a year’s worth of blood, sweat and tears (lots of tears) to get the product ready for you all. Again, I’d like to thank you all for your patience and I genuinely hope that for those of you that struggle with your patches on a daily basis, Vitiliglow™ will help to give you back the confidence that the condition has taken away from you. I’ve had so many lovely emails and messages on social media from many happy customers who are already delighted with the results (even though it may have taken a few attempts to get it right). Please keep coming back to the Vitiliglow™ website and social media pages to check out how others are getting on with the product and see some of their amazing before and after pictures. Post on the Vitiliglow™ Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages with the hashtag #LoveVitiliglow and keep in touch.
