What Makes You Different Makes You Beautiful: Model with Vitiligo Embraces Her Beauty

Chantelle Young is stunning! At four years old, she was diagnosed with vitiligo, a skin condition that causes white patches on her brown skin. Growing up, the Jamaican-Canadian model experienced bullying and social isolation, but  her fierce resilience  enabled her to rise above the negativity.  After being discovered by a photographer as a teen, Chantelle now has a blossoming modeling career including being the face of Desigual's Fall campaign . We salute Chantelle for embracing her beauty and for being the embodiment of  the beauty of diversity. What makes us different, makes us beautiful.

  1. I had vitiligo for 8 years, and I had tried all (PUVA, topical steroid, meladinine cream with exposure to sunlight/PUVA, oral meladinine, oil of bergamot). The vitiligo covered my neck, and one-fourth of my face. My dermatologists could not help me. A friend recommended me a natural treatment, and it worked for me very well. Now i'm 100 % cured. This helped me a lot: naturalvitiligotreatmentsystems.com
