My name is Sarah Hue-Williams and I suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus which leaves my fragile skin covered in scars and bruises.
It seems silly in a way because there is so much intrinsically wrong with me, yet the one thing that bothers me is how my skin looks. When you are interfacing with people, it is my skin I feel most self-conscious about. I have searched all over the world for something that could cover these scars and bruises and would look natural. I discovered Microskin, an Australian made product in Brisbane.
The Microskin consultant explained to me the benefits of Microskin. During this consultation, I wasn’t pressured or rushed. It was a very personal appointment. My skin condition is not something I find easy to talk about. The consultants were amazing and I often keep in touch with them, and receive emails on new products or applicators like the spray cans or roll on applicator. It could not have been a more pleasant experience.
Microskin is easy to apply and stays on my skin for up to a week. If it is applied properly, it won’t rub off and it doesn’t stain clothes or furnishings.
I have been using Microskin for over 2 years now. In my line of work, I am often invited to attend charity functions and corporate Dinners. I am now able to wear cocktail dresses, it’s amazing – it’s revolutionised how I go about covering up my skin problems and I feel very confident as I know the scarring on my legs are hidden by Microskin.
I would recommend Microskin to anyone with a skin condition. The product is truly amazing.
I am Lauren Jimmieson, I have vitiligo.
I was diagnosed with vitiligo eleven years ago. Ever since, I’ve been hiding it from my friends, my family, employers, industry professionals, cast mates, audiences… even myself most of the time. I’m a twenty-five-year-old woman with a disfiguring skin condition, chasing a career in theatre, film and TV. Here is my Blog introducing me and how I live with Vitiligo
Sceptical is what I am by nature and when I first heard about Microskin I instantly thought “here’s another fad that won’t really work.”
7 years later and I still use the product daily and most of my friends wouldn’t even know that I have extensive Vitiligo all over my body.
Microskin has been such a blessing and I couldn’t imagine my life without it. The confidence I once lacked has certainly been restored and has allowed me to get back to doing the things in life that I enjoy. No longer do I not go to the beach in fear of my makeup washing off. No longer do I not wear pretty dresses out of fear people will stare at my blotchy skin.
Microskin really has saved my life and I honestly don’t know where I’d be without it.

Hi my name is Melinda from Sydney NSW and I have been using Microskin for almost 5 years now.
I am so happy to have come across the product on the “Today Tonight” show, as it truly became my “Life Saver”.
I have Vitiligo over at least 90% of my body and am very conscious of how it looks. It got to the stage that I could no longer cover it up anymore.
With the help of Microskin I can at least feel no one is staring at me as it covers the Vitiligo successfully which makes me feel more confident in the way I look.
I am truly grateful for the help I have had over the years for this wonderful product.
I was not dealing with this dramatic change to my skin and was sick and tired of taking different medications and trying different remedies that may help get rid of the Vitiligo.
I know that Microskin will not get rid of the problem but at least it can hide it, and I can feel more confident in myself.
Thank you also to the staff that have been great in always trying to help, with questions and queries that I may have.
A big Thank you for a lifesaving product.
I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) in 2004.
Approximately 30% of people with SLE cannot tolerate full spectrum light – sunlight and fluorescent light. This means I am unable to go out in the sun for longer than 10-15 minutes without getting sick. I also developed pigmentation marks and pigmentation loss in patches on my face which is made worse by light. Microskin has given me the best protection from light of any methods I have tried, including 30+ zinc-based sunscreens and hats. The pigmentation marks on my face have faded considerably and I am able to go outside without a hat for longer periods than ever before. If I use Microskin on my hands, I no longer get the little blisters I that I used to from exposure to light. I have more freedom now and the careful matching of the Microskin to my skin tone means that the pigmentation patches are much less noticeable when I am wearing Microskin. Friends are commenting on how good I look without being able to pick up that it’s because my skin tone is much more even and healthy looking. I highly recommend Microskin to anyone who is photosensitive and needs a high level of protection from full spectrum light.
