Vitiligo is a skin condition in which there is a loss of brown color (pigment) from areas of skin, resulting in irregular white patches that feel like normal skin. Many people with all types of skin pigments suffer from this dermatological change. Famous cases include singer Michael Jackson and Madmen’s Jon Hamm.

Cheri Lindsay a woman who lives with spotting vitiligo, has joined the Dermablend “Camo Confessions” Campaign to show how dealing with the first signs of vitiligo can be accomplished. The 24 year old, sports professional explains how the first stages of vitiligo can be difficult to deal with socially and personally, but that ultimately education and expectance of the skin depigmentation is the first step against ridicule and misunderstanding. In this truly moving video, Cheri Lindsay reminds us that beauty and confidence is more than skin deep.
