26-year-old model with the skin of a 80-year-old is challenging beauty standards

Sara Geurts was just 10 when she was diagnosed with Dermatosparaxis Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (dEDS).

For Sara, her younger days consisted of her feeling ashamed of her skin, even taking the effort to hide it.

“I’ll start out by saying I was not always comfortable or accepting of my disorder,” she said in an interview.

“In high school, I just tried to cover it up. I didn’t want anyone to ask me questions. As I got older, it just kind of started to show more and more,” she added, speaking to The Sun
