Whether we like to admit it or not, our appearance means a lot to us humans. Each and every one of us is conscious about some element of ourselves, be it the shape of our thighs or the curve of our eyebrows.
Even the most attractive people on the planet have hang-ups about their physical appearance from supermodel Kate Moss, whose whole career centers around her looks, hating her “bow legs” to Scarlett Johansson who is conscious of her “chubby face”. Even Beyoncé isn’t satisfied with the way she looks, having once said, “I wear big earrings because I don’t like my ears.”
Oh and Angelina Jolie thinks she’s “odd looking” so the rest of us have no hope!

But one person who is really aware of their appearance is Emmy Award-winning television reporter Lee Thomas.
The 50-year-old entertainment reporter for FOX in Detroit has had a long battle with his skin after being diagnosed with vitiligo – a condition which causes the skin to lose its pigmentation.

Thomas was only 25 years old when he noticed an abnormal white patch on his scalp after a trip to the barbers.
“The barber finished and said to me, ‘Take a look.’ It looked to me like he had nicked my hair, like cut it too much down to the scalp,” Thomas told Daily Mail Online. “I told him that he had nicked me and he said, ‘No I didn’t.’ We go back-and-forth for a minute before I grab the mirror and he shows me that I had a light patch of skin the size of a quarter on the back of my head.”

Panicked by this, Thomas consulted his mother who told him that it was probably caused by stress. She recommended he worry less, but that soon became impossible when more white patches began to materialize.
