During the '70's, she started a weekly TV show on WAPA-TV, which aired on Sunday evenings until 1985. Charytin became an international star with her song Mosquita muerta ['Dead Mosquita'] (which was the name of a character she played on her show). The song became a hit in Mexico, Venezuela and Peru.

In 1983, Charytin acted in the movie Verano en Nueva York ['Summer in New York'] with Mexican actor Julio Aleman. Two of the songs from the soundtrack became hits, Tu vida es un suspenso hasta el final ['Your life is a thriller until the end'], and Para llegar ['Getting there']. In 1985 she released the record Verdades Desnudas ['Naked Truths'], which was produced by Spanish singer, composer and producer Camilo Sesto. In 1986, she and Chacon acted together with Dominican-Mexican actor Andres Garcia and Yolandita Monge in a soap opera entitled Escandalo ['Scandal'].

Since 2002, Charytin has hosted, Escandalo TV together with Marisa del Portillo, Felipe Viel and Lilia Luciano, for Telefutura. In 2006 she directed a TV entertainment program for Univision.

During her career, Charytin has hosted a number of TV series from Japan, England, Italy, Argentina and other countries. In the U.S. and Puerto Rico her programs have won 12 ACE statuettes.

In May of 2012, Charytin was chosen together with Ricky Martin and Zoe Saldana for the cover of the prestigious magazine, People en Espanol, among the "50 most beautiful people."
