Alopecia areata is a rare disease that causes a sudden loss of hair on a person's head and on the rest of their body. Having suffered from this for several years, Aylin, a young German woman, decided not to let it get her down and learned to live with her condition, which she now fully embraces.
This video, in which the young woman explains her story and asserts herself as a fighter who is proud of her body, is proof. In the video we also see her remove all her makeup and accessories, one after another, to reveal her true face.
Aylin is gorgeous both with and without her makeup but it's nonetheless a very brave video to have posted online!
Take a look at the video above to see Aylin's important message for yourself.
