Covering so many things with makeup is not alien to the entertainment industry.
Today we will be talking about vitilgo and some celebrities who actually have this condition.
”Vitiligo is a condition that effects the pigments of an individual’s skin. The cause of vitiligo is unknown and stress can worsen the disorder. Vitiligo can be treated by applying steroids and using ultraviolet light. In extreme cases an individual may opt to de-pigment their unaffected skin so that it blends in with the patches effected by vitiligo.”
Here are celebrities with Vitiligo
The singer and TV host has vitiligo that effects her hand. Speaking on the condition during an interview, Tamar said;
“Anybody with skin issues knows that that’s a very sensitive subject and that’s why I’ve never shared that I have vitiligo because I do. I’ve always had it, since I was a young girl. It’s not as bad as others because everybody has it differently, but I’ve certainly had mine diagnosed. That’s why I tan. People say, “You bleach your skin!” But I tan just so I can have a better tone on my skin, boo! It’s gotten worse since I’ve gotten pregnant. If you shake my hand now, to me it’s more noticeable. But when you get diagnosed with a skin disorder, it’s hard. It does weigh on your self-esteem. It really does. But I’m done defending that. I’m not bleaching my skin and if I was bleaching my skin and I felt like saying so, I would, but for the record, I am not.
The supermodel also has the condition and has continued to show off her beautiful skin every day.
Speaking on the condition, Willow said;
“Some articles kept writing, they would say, ‘Winnie Harlow, 24, suffering from vitiligo’ I was like, ‘Do I look like I’m suffering? Come on now.’ Let’s not do that,”she said to talk show host Jonathan Ross during the interview.
“I feel like it’s not anyone else’s person position to tell me I am ‘suffering’,” the 24-year-old added.
“I don’t feel like I am suffering. I am conquering, I am living, I am living my best life in the way that I can and thriving.”
The king of pop also had vitiligo before his passing.
Hollywood actress and friend to Michael Cicely Tyson revaled durin an interview that Michael wore gloves to cover his vitiligo.
“All of a sudden, he said, ‘I’m doing this glove for Michael,’ Michael was beginning to develop the vitiligo and it started on his hand. The glove was to cover the vitiligo; that’s how that glove came into being,” she told CNNin 2009.
