The Magic of Make-up…
As a result of suffering from severe psoriasis, I have scarred and pigmented skin (aka ‘psoriasis shadows’) from all the treatments I have used over the years. For a long while, I have really struggled with the whole “confidence thing”, especially when it comes having my legs out during the summer months or on nights out. I would walk through shops, thinking ‘I wish I could wear that dress’ or see other girls wearing dresses and skirts, looking so carefree and always thinking ‘I wish I could just walk out the house in a dress, not have to worry about my skin’.
Anyways, to cut the story short, I recently invested in a bottle of Sally Hansen Leg Makeup after reading lots of reviews online, and I’m actually really amazed at the wonders it has done for me. For the first time in so many years, I have been confident enough to wear a dress and walk out the house without being paranoid about my legs. It doesn’t guarantee you full coverage, but does give a nice layer, blurring out the pigmentation and scars, so they’re not as noticeable. I have been using the medium glow shade.
So if you have been struggling to cover your scars/pigmented skin, I highly recommend this product. Also, the directions on the bottle suggest that you spray it into your hands, then rub it evenly onto your legs. However, that didn’t really give me good coverage when I applied it like that, so instead I sprayed it directly onto my legs, and then blended it out evenly. The picture below shows the difference with and without the spray applied.
