We’re Living Dappled

Welcome to Living Dappled!


We’re a vitiligo blog and lifestyle guide. Whether you’re newly diagnosed, a long-time ‘dappled darling,’ or a friend or advocate for vitiligo, you’ve come to the right place – and we’re glad you’re here.


Living with vitiligo can be difficult. It’s an unexpected change that can rob you of feelings of control and confidence. It can destroy your notions of beauty and identity. And in many ways, it can turn your everyday life upside down. We know this – because we’ve lived it.


That’s why we’re imagining life with vitiligo. By bringing you the latest news on treatments, makeup, advocacy and personal stories, we hope to arm you with the information, inspiration and support you need to take on vitiligo with confidence.

Our Manifesto

Our resolution is simple: to re-imagine life with vitiligo.


We’re re-imagining beauty – because we believe beauty isn’t defined by models but rather by those who model true beauty.


We’re re-imagining identity – by celebrating who we are more often than what we look like.


We’re re-imagining confidence – as we learn to navigate a life full of unexpected change.


We’re re-imagining the future – by bringing you news and information about the latest treatments and medical updates from leading experts.


We’re re-imagining the 1% – because while that might feel lonely, it makes us 75 million strong.


We’re re-imagining life with vitiligo – and you’re invited.
