Beauty blogger, Em Ford from London, has struggled with acne for a long time. She created a video to show how social media is impacting our lives and what unrealistic standards of beauty society dictate.
She started posting pictures of herself without makeup on social media about three months ago, and the video contains real comments that people made on her images.
“Three months ago, I began posting images of myself without makeup on social media. The following film contains real comments that were left on images of my face.”
“Over the past few months, I’ve received thousands of messages from people all over the world who suffer or have suffered from acne, an insecurity or self-confidence issues.”
Her message is clear. You Are Beautiful!
“You are beautiful – no matter how flawed you feel, no matter how upset you may about the way you look or how hard you find it to make friends, or be confident. Believe in yourself, and never let anyone tell you’re not beautiful – not even yourself.“
