June 25: World Vitiligo Day

It’s V-Day, and I don’t mean Valentine’s. June 25 is set aside to create awareness about vitiligo and the social stigma associated with it around the world. As part of a campaign, we are petitioning to have June 25 officially recognized by the United Nations as part of a healthcare and education initiative for those with vitiligo and the community, and be observed as World Vitiligo Day.

Today is the perfect day to revive a post, particularly I Am Not My Skin Color, where I wrote about my own skin discoloration. Please read, share and sign the petition for recognition and support of vitiligo awareness.

Carrot Facial Mask

Carrots are packed with vitamins your body needs. Not only are carrots good for you, they are good on you! This carrot mask can help restore vibrancy to your complexion. A word of caution: use carrot masks in moderation. We don’t want you to turn orange!
