Self-love, body positivity and self-acceptance are a global focus but rarely does one zoom in on diseases, especially the incurable kind, that could easily affect ones outlook on life.
Vitiligo is a disease that causes the loss of skin colour in “blotches.” It is a rare disorder, affecting between 0.5 percent and 1 percent of the population worldwide. The condition may be more noticeable in dark-skinned people but it actually affects all ethnic groups.
The beautifully spotted Boitumelo Rametsi was in-studio on #KrunchWithKhutso talking all things vitiligo and her journey through living with her skin condition that she now sees as a beautiful blessing.
#KrunchWithKhutso focuses on highlighting beauty in all its forms as well as nurturing one from the inside out. It probably sounds cliché but for those living with a daily struggle, #KruchWithKhutso is what gets them to see a brighter day.
