Vitiligo is an absence of Melanin in the skin. It affects all races but is more common in black skin.
'Vitiligo is a chronic skin condition characterized by portions of the skin losing their pigment. It occurs when skin pigment cells die or are unable to function. Aside from cases of contact with certain chemicals, the cause of vitiligo is unknown. Research suggests vitiligo may arise from autoimmune, genetic, oxidative stress, neural, or viral causes. Vitiligo is typically classified into two main categories: segmental and non-segmental vitiligo.'
Those that wish to cover their facial vitiligo can do so with waterproof, camouflage cream pigments that blend beautifully and are set with a powder to make them transfer proof.
