Model Melanie Gaydos Preaches Beauty From The Inside Out

When it comes to redefining the word “beauty,” Melanie Gaydos is at the forefront of inspirational models. The 28-year-old was born with ectodermal dysplasia (ED) — a rare genetic condition that, in her case, resulted in hair loss, absent teeth, and a cleft palate. As pointed out by the Ectodermal Dysplasia Society, ED is not just a singular disease, but rather an umbrella term that encompasses several disorders with closely related symptoms. But despite the way her disorder has affected her appearance, Gaydos is confident in how she looks — so much that she decided to become a model.In a new interview with Cosmopolitan, Gaydos opens up about her career as well as her condition, explaining that she’s never felt any insecurities about her appearance. “I was never, ever bothered by the way that I look. It has nothing to do with me,” she says. “Everybody has their own insecurities…It’s really limiting, depressing, to worry about what other people look like and what other people think of us. I don’t see why people can’t just be happy with themselves and be happy for other people.”
