There’s no denying it, the party season used to fill me with dread every year. Having had vitiligo for over 20 years now, I would find it incredibly stressful trying to find an outfit with sleeves to cover depigmented patches on my arms and I’d always have to wear tights to cover up the vitiligo on my legs.
I’d always wear something that covered me up, rather than wear something that suited me or that I actually wanted to wear.
Since I developed VITILIGLOW®, I’ve felt confident in whatever I choose to wear because my patches are completely covered. Because I can cover my arms, neck and legs I’ve found loads more outfit options including my go-to outfit, my little black dress! Mine has an off-the-shoulder cut and a few years ago, I wouldn’t have worn it because I didn’t want to draw attention to my white patches.
You wouldn’t believe it, but shoes were also a major hassle! I’ve always tried to wear boots or shoes that cover my feet in the past because my feet are completely white and have no pigment. I cover my feet with VITILIGLOW® now so I can choose any shoes from sandals to strappy heels.
I hope you all have a wonderful festive season. If you want to find out more about the outfits I’m wearing this December, watch my video below:
Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas.

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.
