Sara Geurts is a 26-year-old model with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. EDS is a condition that makes the skin much stretchier than normal…the collagen in the skin is broken down, so rather than acting as elastic and ‘popping’ back into place, a person with EDS ends up looking much older before their time.
For a lot of people the idea of living with wrinkled skin is almost a nightmare – something we’d avoid at all costs. For someone EDS it’s unavoidable.
Sara is taking her condition and showing the world that just because she’s different, doesn’t mean she’s not beautiful. This break-out model (who lives in Minnesota) believes that beauty comes in all shapes and wants other people to embrace who they are.
Looking at her pictures it’s easy to imagine who Sara could have taken her diagnosis and hidden away from the world. But it’s her unique look that makes her stand out. Take a look!
