Embrace Your Unique Beauty

July 20, 2017

From Our July Newsletter:

We all have trouble being comfortable with showing our skin sometimes, and with the hot July weather upon us, it can be tricky to try and keep covered up. Is it really worth it to sacrifice your comfort?

Artist Brock Elbank put together a photo set of several people who have a condition calledvitiligo. Their skin has stopped making pigment, which results in white-ish patches all over their bodies. The project was to begin the journey of normalising and celebrating this unique condition. Many who have vitiligo expressed feeling the need to cover up their perceived "imperfections" by dressing themselves up head to toe or correcting their lack-of-pigment with makeup. When you put yourself out there in the public eye, a conversation starts and more and more people are educated on what they don't know very much about. 
So be brave, be positive and be YOU, because you are incredible just as you are.
