Helping you feel confident in your own skin is what Veil is all about

One of Veil’s core values is offering people a solution to concerns with their skin’s appearance. Adam’s story embodies this perfectly.

If you follow us on social media or receive our newsletters, last month you’ll have heard about our exciting new project in collaboration with makeup artist Gemma Rimmington, photographer Natalie Pluck and model Gianni Casagrande.

After the photoshoot, Gemma shared a story with us regarding Adam, one of our models — and it really caught our attention.

Adam’s story

Adam was born with a port wine birthmark on his face, down his arm and on his chest. He’s spent years having laser treatments to reduce the birthmark but continues to have facial discolouration. Gemma revealed that during filming Adam explained that it was his first time wearing a camouflage cream and he had never seen his face without it before. “He was blown away,” Gemma told us, “Such a wonderful job to be part of and I definitely reap the rewards of knowing how confident he felt! Amazing.”

The reason this scenario means so much to us is that it embodies what Veil is all about. Our Cover Cream was created in 1952 by pioneering plastic surgeon Thomas Blake to hide post-operative scars. Offering people a way to effectively conceal skin imperfections or conditions continues to be one of our core values.

Confidence is a big thing for us all. While we all know that it’s what’s on the inside that counts, we live in a world that often aims to achieve perfection and judges people on their looks. Physical ‘imperfections’ not only attract unwanted attention but also distract from who we are as people.

Free yourself from concerns about your skin’s appearance

Veil Cover Cream offers a way to cover up perceived flaws and gives relief from skin concerns. How everyone wishes to present themselves to the world is their own unique and individual choice. We’re proud to provide people with the opportunity to disguise skin conditions or imperfections that they would rather be without.

Maybe you’re like Adam and have lived with a birthmark from birth? Perhaps you developed vitiligo or psoriasis? Maybe you regret getting tattoos, or have scars that tell stories you’d rather keep private? Whatever you want to conceal, our products give effective and durable cover that makes your skin’s appearance your choice.
