Nearly 1% of the world’s population are affected by vitiligo.

Models such as Winnie Harlow have used their platforms to speak up against the condition and how it has, and still impacts their life. Harlow also shared the video, which was originally shared on Dosh’s Instagram page with the message below:

“I get so many people reaching out saying “people covering their pimples, vitiligo freckles etc. they need to be more confident like you”. But why shame someone for what makes them happy? But IT’S NOT just about “Vitiligo”!!!!!!!!!! We live in a time of social media, where everyone with a keyboard thinks they have the right to a negative opinion or to judge each other when really the best use of our platforms are empathy, understanding & support. We all have insecurities, and we are different and yet so much alike.”
