AN ASPIRING model whose vitiligo is slowly fading hopes that it never disappears. Bashir Aziz, from Tooting, London, was born with vitiligo, a skin disorder characterised by small, white patches on various parts of the body caused by the loss of natural pigment. Growing up, Bashir’s body, face and head and even his hair was covered in white patches. The 23-year-old told Barcroft TV: "My vitiligo is different because with everyone else they start off fully pigmented or fully with their color that they are supposed to have. “In my case it’s different because I started off with vitiligo. “On my skin itself, it’s affected down the middle - and my hair as well, it can affect your hair and some people don’t know that.” Since he was a child Bashir has gone to doctors and dermatologists to find a treatment for his vitiligo. As there is no known cure for vitiligo, being different is all Bashir has ever known. But over the years, the diversity activist noticed a change in his skin. He explained: “I was born with vitiligo, like say 80 percent on my body, but now my skin pigments over the years just come back to life. "So now it’s like 40 percent or 50 percent now.”
