In a post on her Instagram account, La Nueva Kontrabida Kyline Alcantara shared an artist nightmare, pimple breakouts.
Relax, it happened in 2018 and she’s overcome all of it now and become more beautiful and better as a person.
Check out the Instagram post below:
“Yes, this happened to me. It started March last year, it started with one zit, and then it became two until I can’t count them anymore. Last quarter of last year, it got really worst – as in they spread in my both cheeks. Imagine people are always expecting you to be at your best, to look perfect, to look like the polished girl that they always see in TV and magazines, but you can’t even look at yourself in the mirror.
There were times before na habang nag-aayos ako for showbiz commitment na bigla na lang ako naiiyak because at the back of my head “how am I gonna face them?” I was judged, I was bashed and bullied for putting too much make-up (people telling me na ang kapal ng make-up mo pero puro ka pa rin tigyawat) during that time but what they don’t know is make-up na lang yung kakampi ko noon. Concealers and foundations are my best friends because they cover my breakouts so I can come out and look more presentable. Caps and side hair are my constant accessories, again, to cover my cheeks from my unwanted zits.Tried different skin routine in hope na magiging okay ang breakouts ko but wala di din nag-effect.
Until one day, I consulted a specialist to help me with my condition and there she told me to stop all the things na ginagawa ko with my face. She told me na less is more. She told me na factor kung bakit ako nagkaroon ng breakouts were: puberty that affects my hormones and I have a very sensitive skin na nagrereact differently from products that I used based dun sa mga napapanood ko na skin care routines sa YouTube. Meaning don’t expect na nagwork sa iba ay magwo-work din sa’yo. It’s important to know na we have different skin types.
Why am I posting this? To tell you – yes, you! Who is having a hard time with your breakout, your excess weight, your unruly hair, your uneven skin, your bucky teeth, your stretch marks and scars na that’s okay. Don’t stress yourself over something to be perfect because it will not come.
Accept your uniqueness and use it to your own advantage and represent yourself proudly thru it. Yes, even us artista madaming imperfections kagaya niyp but as part of our job, we need to look more presentable but it doesn’t mean na ganun palagi. We need the help also of our trusted glam teams to look presentable or what you call as “glam.” It’s okay to upgrade and to improve yourself but it’s very important na hindi dapat mawala yung sarili mo in the process of it.
Don’t let the norm and society dictate what you should feel and look. Be your own unique you. Love the imperfectly perfect you. Have confidence and love your yourself. For our Creator loves you! Yes, you, the unique you.”
