Active Vitiligo Support in Africa
The skin is the most visible organ of the human body; hence any visible imperfection apparently instinctively affects an individual’s self-confidence and self-esteem. We live in a world deeply invested with the idea of physical beauty. Having an unusual visual appearance and skin imperfections, especially a chronic one like Vitiligo, can be particularly difficult in a society that places a strong emphasis on physical appearance, and one in which we are constantly exposed to images of the idealized ‘perfect’ body and face.
