Another year has flown by but, unlike other years 2020 is one we will all not forget in a hurry. 2020 has had quite a few defining events. With the worldwide pandemic still raging causing so many social changes there is no doubt a whole lot of changes and history to be made! So, what is in store for Vitiligo Treatment in 2021?
Vitiligo Treatment in 2021
Well, I do not believe anybody was left untouched, in some way. by this last year. Vitiligo Treatment as a global company was no exception. Everything from the way we consult, manufacture, and deliver had to be addressed and changes made where necessary to ensure everyone’s safety.
Through all this, we still manage to introduce one new product. And of course, our head consultant, Cheryl Ferguson, managed to complete her first published book. She had earmarked this to coincide with her 10th year anniversary with the company.
The new product introduced was the Vitilox® Vitiligo Rapid Eye Treatment. This treatment was formulated to rejuvenate pigmentation on the sensitive skin area around your eyes and on your eye lids. It has also replaced the Vitilox® Serum and is ideal for early small spot treatment and treating stubborn Vitiligo areas.

How did 2020 change the way we treat Vitiligo?
2020 changed the way we live, work, shop, socialise, and communicate with family and friends. Working from home became a normal for many people, and a lot of us found ourselves isolated and having to communicate via different internet based social apps to keep ourselves connected.
At Vitiligo Treatment we conducted more consultations than ever before and learnt a lot about more about Vitiligo while having to keep ourselves safe from the Covid virus.
The number of new Vitiligo cases rose and some of our current patients found that the healing effect of their treatment was taking longer. This can be attributed to the following causes:
Trauma and Stress:
Aside from the normal day to day stress we all had to endure before, we now encountered other stress factors adding to individuals’ emotional burdens. These include social isolation, unemployment, and economic losses, and working from home while caring for children and other family members. Schooling your children thereby ensuring their ability to succeed at their studies and be able to integrate back into the classroom, while rewarding, is a huge responsibility.
Trauma and Stress weakens the responses of your immune system, and if you are prone to Vitiligo, may well trigger the condition. We also find that if you are under treatment, Stress may slow down treatment pigmentation results.
Hand Sanitisers and Vitiligo:
We are aware of how sanitisers effect the hands, due to the alcohol content in these products. We urge all patients that are treating their hands with our Vitilox Pigmentation Cream to apply the Cream at least twice a day, (mornings and evenings) after washing your hands. Rather use soap and water to clean and sanitise your hands as this will leave the Cream active for longer.
Hand sanitisers carry a high alcohol percentage, and this dries out the skin more with every application. Dry skin can lead to itching, flaky skin and ultimately damage the outer skin. These small lacerations could very well trigger an outbreak of Vitiligo.
Being home bound or unable to out to the gym or exercise outdoors had a marked effect on all of us. Not getting enough physical activity can lead to heart disease—even for people who have no other risk factors. It can also increase the likelihood of developing other conditions including obesity, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, and autoimmune conditions. One of those auto immune conditions being Vitiligo.
We know that lite exercise will help reduce endorphins in the system that cause stress. If you are working from home and cannot break out to go for a quick walk, you may want to look at alternatives in doing some simple exercise like Push Ups, Squats, Skipping and even stretching exercises.
There are also many more streaming exercise groups available on the net now that you may want to get involved in. This is also a great way to interact with others be it Facebook or Zoom meetups.
Avoid Caffeine and Soda Drinks:
Gone are the days of predetermined Coffee breaks. It is now so easy to whip up a quick coffee, or take a soda drink out the fridge.
Avoid, or at least reduce, your consumption of Coffee and any drinks containing caffeine or sugar. These are stimulants that will increase your level of stress rather than reducing it. Rather swap caffeinated and soda drinks for water, herbal teas, or diluted natural fruit juices to keep yourself hydrated enabling your body to cope better with stress.
Avoid refined sugar and other refined foods. Rather try to eat a healthy, natural, well-balanced and nutritious diet.
