February is national Raynaud’s Awareness Month so we’ve decided to chip in with our #Veilchallenge and devote the whole month to Raynaud’s, Scleroderma and Telangiectasia. For anyone suffering from either of these conditions a camouflage cream can be a huge boost to allow you to cover uneven pigmentation. By using our Cover Cream you can create a natural look that’s long-lasting, hard-wearing and even waterproof.
Raynaud’s affects 10 million people in the UK. In its most severe form is very painful, and in secondary Raynaud’s ulcerations can occur which may become gangrenous and lead to amputation.
Scleroderma is a disease of the connective tissue with around 8,000 people affected in the UK alongside their Raynaud's. Scleroderma means hard skin but its impact is not limited to the skin and internal organs and blood supply may also become damaged. Currently the cause remains unknown and we continue to support research into its treatment and helping to find a cure.
Telangiectasias angioectasias are small dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin or mucous membranes, measuring between 0.5 and 1 millimeter in diameter. They can develop anywhere on the body but are commonly seen on the face around the nose, cheeks, and chin.
