The Skin Revolution Begins Now

World-renowned hyperpigmentation specialist and award-winning doctor Dr Vanita Rattan (Gossain), Class of 2002, has written the ultimate guide to beautiful and healthy skin of colour.

Skin Revolution is published by HarperCollins and aims to help you navigate the sometimes confusing beauty industry in a world where Caucasian skin dominates clinical trials, but where skin of colour is the global majority.

“My book is where skincare meets science and self-love to empower you to look good, feel great, and glow in your melanin-rich skin,” says Vanita.  “From seasoned skincare aficionados to complete beginners, from high-end to budget, Skin Revolution is your foundation to a lifetime of everyday radiance.”

She is kindly donating some copies of the book to the LEH library and hopes the chapter on teenage acne will be particularly useful for students.

She adds: “I remember winning a maths prize at LEH in U4, I believe and it gave me the confidence to push hard at GCSE and get into Medical School. I later found out during a dyslexia lecture at UCL (20 years ago) that I was actually dyslexic and everything made more sense. So, if you told me as a teenager that I'd be giving my book to LEH, I wouldn't have believed you!”

Vanita is a cosmetic formulator specialising in skin of colour.  She is a doctor in Medicine (MBBS) and Physiology/Pharmacology (BSc).  In 2012 she founded The Hyperpigmentation Clinic where, after five painstaking years, she pioneered the world’s first professional pigmentation treatment for skin of colour.

She owns her own laboratory to conduct research and development on ingredients and combinations suitable for skin of colour.  Her goal is to ensure equal skincare practices for skin of colour as for Caucasian skin, which she believes will come from education and empowerment.
