5 People With Exceptionally Unique Skin Colours

We have different Skin colors due to the presence of a pigment called melanin, which is controlled by at least 6 genes. Both light and dark complexioned people have melanin. However, two forms are produced--pheomelanin , which is red to yellow in color, and eumelanin , which is dark brown to black.

Below are few people with exceptionally unique skin colors:


1. Khoudia Diop

Khoudia Diop is a 19-year-old from Senegal who has faced bullying throughout her life simply because of the color of her skin. But that hasn't stopped her, and she began working with The Coloured Girl, Inc., a group that promotes self-love and celebrates women of all backgrounds.

Since then, Khoudia, who started modeling when she was 17, has won over the Internet with her stunning photos, which have earned her a following of over 235,000 people on Instagram. She's also inspiring people to embrace their differences: “If you're lucky enough to be different, don't ever change.”

2. Connie Chiu

Connie Chiu was born in Hong Kong. The fourth child in a Chinese family, she was the only one born with albinism.

3. Winnie Harlow

When Winnie Harlow was four years old, a mysterious white patch appeared on her stomach. Diagnosed with the skin disorder vitiligo, she watched as similar spots spread all over her body over the next few years, including on her hands, knees, and face.

Her striking appearance caught the attention of Tyra Banks, who discovered her on Instagram and asked her to compete in cycle 21 of America's Next Top Model, where she placed fifth. She is now the current brand ambassador for the Barcelona-based casual clothing brand Desigual, along with Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima. (Source 1 | Source 2)

4. Nastya Zhidkova

Dubbed the most beautiful albino girl in the world, Nasty Zhidkova was born in Russian in 1996. This young model is a striking photogenic beauty credited with changing the face of the fashion and beauty industry in Russia. Nastya is also a talented songstress who frequently shares her music on Youtube.

5. Brock Elbank's subjects

Photographer Brock Elbank is another artist who wants to show off just how beautiful freckles truly are. He started a project dedicated to photographing freckled skin back in 2012, in a stripped back studio free of any visual distractions. The focus is all about the freckles.

The project, called #Freckles, is in progress in London. Elbank is still looking for anyone with freckles to take part for a collection that will be shown in 2017 through Michael Reid.
