Whether you’re new to applying VITILIGLOW® or you’ve been using it a while but want to brush up on your application skills, this blog post is for you! Applying VITILIGLOW® in the most effective way will make sure you’re getting the best results out of the product, so keep reading for my top tips!
Get everything ready and laid out in front of you before you start applying VITILIGLOW®. Give yourself plenty of time because, as with any new product, it can take a few practice runs to get it spot-on. I find the best place to apply VITILIGLOW® is the bathroom as I can make sure I’ve got everything I need within easy reach. This includes my bottle of VITILIGLOW® Prep/Remover, my bottle of VITILIGLOW® in the correct shade, cotton wool pads, moisturiser, wet wipes and an old towel. Watch my video about preparing to apply VITILIGLOW®.
Once you’re ready, give your bottle of VITILIGLOW® a good shake. Pump a small amount of the formula into the palm of your hand (or onto your applicator sponge or brush if you prefer this method) but remember that a little goes a very long way! You don’t need more than the size of a 10 pence.
Apply the formula in a thin layer to your white depigmented patches first, building up coverage with extra-thin layers if needed. After that, blend a thin layer of the formula over the rest of the area of the body. Watch my application video below for my detailed explanation of how to apply VITILIGLOW®.
Ready to go
Make sure you wait several minutes for Vitiliglow™ to dry completely before you get 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. I apply Vitiliglow™ every day before work and can now do it really quickly, so with a bit of practice, you’ll get there too.
Applying to your face, neck, legs, feet and more!
If you want to know the specifics of applying Vitiliglow™ to areas like your face, neck, legs and feet, visit our new webpage dedicated to applying Vitiliglow to more tricky areas.
Everybody deserves to feel confident in their own skin, and whether that's showing off your patches with pride or covering them up. Please keep in touch with us and say hello via the Vitiliglow™ Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages and, once again, thank you all for your continued support.
Founder of Vitiliglow™
Around 74 million people across the globe have vitiligo. It’s a long-term condition where white patches develop on the skin, caused by a lack of melanin or skin pigment.
Vitiligo can affect any area of skin. It varies from person to person, with some only getting a few small patches and others getting bigger patches of depigmented skin that join up, but it can affect anyone of any race, gender and background – including celebrities and people in the spotlight.
With vitiligo being discussed, embraced and celebrated more and more on social media, there has also been a rise in celebrities opening up and talking about their own experiences with the skin condition. We’ve taken a look at five popular people who celebrate vitiligo.
1 – Dean Edwards
Celebrity chef Dean is a whizz in the kitchen. He also has vitiligo, which he’s been covering up for many years. In 2017, Dean appeared on daytime TV programme Lorraine, and revealed his patches to thousands of viewers. Since then, he’s spoken more and more about the condition on his social media platforms, educating his fans and followers about it. Dean has been a long-time supporter of VITILIGLOW™ and regularly tweets his support for what we do. In fact, Dean has used VITILIGLOW™ to cover his patches when he’s appeared on TV and nobody even knew he had vitiligo!

More recently, Dean was featured in Brock Elbank’s photography project. London-based Elbank is a talented photographer who has focused more recently on skin conditions, scars and the uniqueness of the human body.
2 – Winnie Harlow
Widely known for strutting her stuff down the catwalk, Canadian fashion model Winnie is a style icon who also happens to have vitiligo.
The America’s Next Top Model contestant has more recently become recognised as a public spokesperson for vitiligo, and she’s empowered thousands of people to embrace their depigmented patches and be proud.
3 – Lee Thomas
The Vitiligo Society Patron and Fox 2 News Reporter, Lee Thomas has been generating much-needed conversation about vitiligo, helping to raise awareness of the condition. Like many of us who choose to use a camouflage makeup, like VITILIGLOW™, to cover our depigmented patches, Lee turned to heavy makeup application for years.
When we met Lee at the Vitiligo Society’s Open Day in 2018, he explained that he covers up his patches when he’s on TV because he wants viewers to listen to what he’s saying rather than being distracted by his skin. He’s not embarrassed about vitiligo but he doesn’t want vitiligo to take the focus away from his news stories.
4 – Demi Sims
Best known for starring in The Only Way Is Essex and being the younger sister of Chloe Sims, Demi took to Instagram in May to talk for the first time about her journey with vitiligo. After the photo was posted, Demi’s Instagram feed was full of discussion about the condition and she has become an online role model for many young adults with vitiligo.

5 – Kaiden Williams
Since appearing in Primark adverts in December 2018, 13-year-old Kaiden has inspired thousands of children and young people with vitiligo to feel confident in their own skin.
Kaiden proudly promoted Primark’s kids’ sportswear range in many Primark stores across the country, and has sparked all-important conversations between parents and children about what vitiligo is and how it makes people unique.

Some people choose to go out with their patches on show. Others of us feel more confident using all-in-one product VITILIGLOW™ to cover up our depigmented patches to blend them in with our natural skin tone, and that’s the very reason I launched VITILIGLOW™. It’s so important that we feel comfortable and confident in our own skin, and that’s what VITILIGLOW™ can help you with.
If you want to learn more about vitiligo or feel like you need some support, The Vitiligo Society can provide so much advice and guidance. Just like the team at VITILIGLOW™, The Vitiligo Society believe that it’s important to educate others about vitiligo and create support groups for people with the condition.
