Recently a brave young lady called Amy Elsegood shared a no make-up selfie to show everyone her Port-Wine Stain Birthmark.
Amy, from Ripon in North Yorkshire had worn Veil Cover Cream to conceal the birthmark on her right cheek. When she shared her no make-up selfie she gained support and received kind messages from all around the world. Here is Amy's story:
"I was 7 years old when I first came to Veil Cover Cream, for a camouflage colour match to cover the Port-wine stain birthmark that covered almost half my face. At that point I knew I was different to other children.
Once I got my colour match, I only wore the make up if I was going to school discos or parties. When I started secondary school, I started wearing veil more and more, until it came to the point where I didn’t like anyone seeing me without make up on.
I tried other camouflage make up, but none of them were as natural, some took longer to apply and even longer to set. With Veil Cover Cream, I can apply in minutes, it provides full coverage and it will last me all day. Even going on holiday, once I apply veil in a morning I can get in and out the pool and be protected from the sun all day.
Using veil cover cream has given me confidence, and gives me a natural look.
I have never let having a birthmark get me down or hold me back, its part of who I am, I have and will continue too, live my life the way anybody should and thanks to veil cover cream, I’m able too."
