Acne is Normal

Let's all help in

Let's all help in normalising acne across mainstream media and allow people to feel comfortable and empowered no matter what their skin conditions or skin type. Acne can have a huge impact on not only our skin but our mental health also and it's about time we change the perception that people with acne are dirty and ugly.

Absolutely we strive towards great skin health and that is why the skincare industry makes astronomical amounts of money but the point of this video is to help people feel confident in their own skin and understand that acne is normal.

Disclaimer: I am not a dermatologist nor an aesthetician, I am however incredibly passionate about skincare. I love to try out new products, brands, research ingredients and give you an honest opinion on the very best affordable and effective skincare you can get your hands on. With skincare, there is a lot of research out there that can be misleading or incorrect when published. Science and technology continue to thrive and with that, comes new and updated scientific backing and research to our most beloved skincare ingredients. So please take this into consideration as I try my very best to source accurate information at the time of filming.

I was always ashamed because of acne on my forehead. I really wish someone told me this earlier. Thank you!

Thank you for this video and ending the stigma! Currently struggling with hormonal spots after period but I'm learning that it is fine and I'm trying to embrace them. Obviously, still mildly treating them ? xx

You are beautiful acne or not. You should do a video of how to take care of our chest and back. Don't forget to take your shirt off so we can better learn?

Yes to normalising acne!! I really don’t like how films/tv shows only pick attractive people who have ‘perfect skin’ and are ‘ideal’...it makes people think those are the expectations!!

I love this! I'm looking forward to your videos , specially reviewing products found in Europe as most skincare YouTubers are based in the US. This message though, made a fan and not only a subscriber!

Hiii I really like you channel and hope you answer my question! Can you use a salicylic acid cleanser and still use a salicylic acid treatment? For example: if I use the cerave SA cleanser can I still use my Paulas choice skin perfecting 2% BHA liquid or would that be over exfoliating ? Love you channel :)

Thank you so, so much for this. I have always struggled with severe depression and anxiety, and lately it's been so much worse. I'm one of those "essential" workers as well, and while I'm thankful that I've had a consistent paycheck through all this, work has made my life a million times more stressful. Maybe it's that, maybe it's the mask, maybe I screwed with my routine too much, who knows, but I've developed the worst acne I've had in my entire life. Which has just added to the depression and anxiety and body dysmorphia. It's so easy to get lost in my own head and forget that I'm normal and my issues are normal (or if not normal, very common!) and I'm not the disgusting monster my brain keeps telling me I am.

I'm NHS staff & the face masks that are so necessary are causing acne for people that never had it before ?


I wish I had someone like you when I was having severe acne all over my face... it started when I was 14 and kept on having a paaaarty until 30. I tried everything... skincare, so many doctors, Chinese herbs and supplements. Nothing worked. Even my dad asked me if I wash my face everyday. That’s something which still hurts me even now?

Celine Abainza

Thank you for this one! I love your video ❤️? I have always been ashamed and get bullied because of my acne. I really felt I am not belong to others because I was the only one who had the severe acne. And it made me really depressed but as time goes by I've learned how to take care of my skin and accept it. Yes acne is normal! ❤️ Thank you again so much! ??

Katelynn Rosson

I’ve always wondered if product reviewers ever experienced acne from all of the products that they test. Maybe this flare-up was from a new product that you tested recently? (I break out all of the time, mine are usually hormone related and SO uncomfortable.)


thank you for this video i needed this❤❤ recently i brought cerave hydrating cleanser and i am really worried for my skin because it cause me a breakout. Is it normal?

Shaina Parveen

I'm struggling with acne and dark spots and this video is everything!


DEFINITELY! there will be days where you may have finally beat acne, but then it comes back..flawless “photoshopped” skin isn’t natural!!
