How Do I Look? Shankar on Vitiligo

I can’t quite believe that this is the tenth instalment in my How Do I Look? series. I have been talking about rosacea on my blog and social media for 6+ years and feel so passionately about skin positivity and diversity in the appearances we are shown in the media and what is considered ‘attractive’. So I wanted to use my platform, privilege, and reach to educate people and amplify the voices of others. So far I’ve spoken to people with acne, psoriasis, scars, eczema, hair loss, and birthmarks – all posts are linked at the very bottom of this post – and today I have a new story for you.

I’m so pleased to share my interview with Shankar Jalota, better known online as The Vitiligo Man. He was amazingly open with me, covering make up, mental health, and the media representation of vitiligo. I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did.

Read my interview with the incredible Shankar Jalota (otherwise known as The Vitiligo Man) - a vitiligo model and skin positivity advocate. He talks about wearing make up to cover vitiligo, the impact of skin on mental health and the media visibility of vitiligo. #talontedlex #thevitiligoman #bodypositivity #skinpositivity
