What kinds of cosmetics might disguise the white patches on my skin?
Some people use cosmetics to make the lightened patches of their skin darker. Facial makeup can help, as can certain kinds of skin stains. Self-tanning lotions or bronzers can be used on areas such as arms and legs. You may find cosmetics to be especially helpful if your vitiligo has not spread widely. While cosmetics are temporary, they can be especially helpful for children, who may not be able to receive certain types of skin treatments, and they may also help people who are upset about their changing appearance feel better.
