Fact: Getting acne is normal, and no one is really exempted from it—not even celebs! We're so used to seeing them in full glam that it's always refreshing to see when someone gets *real* about their skin struggles. Such is the case of Bianca Gonzalez, who candidly shared her breakout blues on her social media accounts. Read about her experience below:


Recently, Bianca posted a photo of her unedited bare face—breakouts and all.

In her caption, she recounted her experience dealing with breakouts during the quarantine.

"No filter. Obviously. I know this might raise eyebrows or make some people say 'yuck,' but I shared a picture of my skin breakout a few days ago on [Instagram] Stories and got overwhelming messages from so many of you. What I posted was, 'I know there are much bigger problems in the world right now, but to anyone suffering from acne, know that you are not alone.' I guess I wanted to share this [with] those in the same situation who might be reading this. Again, yes, napakaraming mas malaking problema, but I feel you na nakakababa talaga ng self-esteem kapag nag-breakout, lalo at madalas sa WFH, mukha talaga natin ang nakikita ng iba. I also got so many recommendations and suggestions from you, maraming, maraming salamat! I appreciate it! Ito na, natutuyo na ang mga pimple isa isa."

She also went on to explain the cause of her acne. "This whole quarantine I have not gone to the derma. I have just stuck to my personal no-fail few skincare steps," she divulged. "Kaso nung nag-try ako ng bago, ayun, nalagot. I tried a retinol cream at yun pala, hindi ako hiyang."


She ended her caption on a ~motivational~ note: "So, to anyone suffering from acne, don't feel bad because 'you're not supposed to feel bad' about such a 'small' problem. Your feelings are valid! Consult a derma if you can sa Telemedicine apps. And know na hindi ka nag-iisa."
