“I warmly welcome the establishment of Skin Deep Behind the
Mask as a further, much needed resource to tackle the impact of
skin conditions across the UK. There is still a huge amount to be
done to diagnose and treat all skin conditions, and I support SDBM
as an initiative designed to provide a collective effort towards
campaigning and providing support and information for clinicians,
individuals, and carers whose lives will all be improved by further
efforts in this area.”

John Pugh, MP
Member of Parliament for Southport

“I am well aware of the impact skin diseases such as vitiligo
and alopecia can have on people and their families. The work
Skin Deep Behind the Mask do to help and support sufferers
of these conditions is absolutely pivotal and, in turn, I shall
remain on hand to support the charity in any way I can.”

The prevalence of skin disease exceeds that of obesity, hypertension, or cancer. Despite skin being the largest organ of the human body, dermatological research remains one of the most under funded areas of medicine. In a world where society has an increasing preoccupation with image and it’s importance to every aspect of a person’s life, sufferers of skin diseases are feeling and being more marginalised and isolated than ever.

Welcome to Skin Deep Behind the Mask

Art has inherently been a malleable medium by which many forms of expressions can be made, SKIN DEEP Behind the Mask is yet another to do so.
The human body, amazing isn't it?
Did you know, the largest organ
we posses is skin?
Skin beauty care is a
multi-billion pound global
business; and for many people
'first impressions count'
...after all, we just want to belong, right?

Does it surprise you to hear that ‘skin’
is the most medically under
supported organ on this planet?
How many things has your skin been in contact
with today?

From getting out of bed in the morning and whisking
off the warm covers, to making a coffee and checking
your e-mails, travelling, walking, texting, surfing...

Now imagine you cannot do these things easily
because your skin incurably cracks, bleeds, peels,
flakes, flares-up or worse!
• How much longer would it take to get things done?
• How would this affect your friends, and family?
• How would you feel both physically and mentally?
• How would this affect the quality of your life?

"Every year 52% of the UK population suffer from some kind of skin affliction, some skin ailments can be treated and managed but there are many which cannot. In our inter-connected world today where most things are available at the click of a button, why oh why cannot all skin diseases be eradicated?

As many of you understand, many skin diseases are incurable. Perhaps not because it is so medically challenging to diagnose but simply because there isn’t enough interest of this to warrant research and investment.

The unstoppable growth of our planet's population rate compared to the dwindling resources available and the global climate changes dictate a greater awareness of protecting our skin, and more consideration to help those suffering from skin disease.
