Medical Conditions and Skin Discolouration

Medical Conditions and Skin Discolouration Colour Derma understands that skin conditions, no matter their origins, can cause discomfort emotional and psychological. Unusual skin discolouration, be it hyperpigmentation (dark or coloured patches) or hypopigmentation (white patches), may be caused by vitiligo, eczema, or other conditions we’ve discussed. However, there are a range of other ailments that may cause discolouration as a side effect. We want to help you understand some of the different illnesses and conditions that may cause skin staining or discolouration for greater awareness. This list is by not means complete and should not be used for self-diagnosis. If you think that you may have any of these ailments, please contact your medical provider as soon as possible for diagnosis and treatment options. What ailments cause skin discolouration Medical Conditions? You may be familiar with vitiligo, eczema, or rosacea causing troubling skin discolouration, affecting a person’s self-confidence.

Camouflage Makeup Benefits Are More Than Skin Deep

Camouflage Makeup Benefits Are More Than Skin Deep

Camouflage makeup is a scientifically proven solution for improved quality of life As much as many of us do not want to admit this, one’s appearance can have a tremendous impact, particularly on confidence and self-esteem. While we may know that we cannot all have flawless skin and supermodel looks, spots and scars are “unsightly” and “unattractive”.

Children and teens are especially susceptible as they are still developing and very impressionable. This is where camouflage makeup shines, helping people, young and old, regain their self-esteem and confidence. The team at Colour Derma has seen how transformative camouflage makeup can be and wants to share the scientific backing on these positive effects. Skin Conditions Have Profound Impacts How you think the world sees you is often how you think of yourself. While this impact is admittedly greater in children and teenagers, it still can have catastrophic effects on adults. The face and hands are often what is presented to the world, creating that first impression, and anything different from the norm will draw attention, for better or worse. Some people will think skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, vitiligo, melasma, or rosacea are not serious as they do not usually cause serious physical damage or disabilities.

For those unfamiliar with the term, “camouflage makeup” may conjure images of soldiers with swatches of greens, browns, and greys across their face. This is not what we are talking about, although our camouflage makeup does have its origins in the military.  It could say to have begun with Max Factor in the US during World War I, taking his knowledge of makeup transformations for stage and screen and applying it to help plastic surgeons to cover up or “camouflage” scars, especially for soldiers suffering from burns. This work continued around the world as practitioners developed formulations and techniques. Not only were they more natural-looking, but the make-up became more durable. These products also mimic skin texture, so sometimes acting as a “second skin”. This allows people to be more assured as they carried on with their normal lives.
