That is to say, you feel so bad with what you see (supermodels), that you leave”; he told Julián Isaza, a journalist for EL TIEMPO, in 2013.

“That shocks you too much when they tell you. I never went through a psychological process to deal with this kind of thing,” added the businesswoman, who also reported that It’s been a two year process fighting cancer diseases.

He says that most likely tanning beds to which he underwent several years ago were responsible for the fact that today his skin is suffering the consequences.

“I started going to tanning beds. That was exactly in 2000. During that year I could have gone 15 or 20 times, I forget about it and never went to tanning beds again, I lose that desire to be golden . I become very aware of the damage that the sun does and I begin to take care of myself“, said.

“In the end my recommendation is that they think long before exposing themselves to tanning rooms (especially my younger followers because they have a life ahead of them and they think that this will not happen to them), and that they protect themselves a lot with sunscreen at all times,” he said.

On the other hand, on his social networks he left an emotional message with which he hopes to raise awareness among his digital community so that they begin to take better care of their health and go for constant medical check-ups to avoid setbacks.

“Sometimes we think that statistics only apply to other people, that 3% or 10% or 20% probability almost never includes yourself (I’m speaking for myself) and then you realize that if it is likely that you are part of that percentage,” he wrote.
