Three years ago I created 'YOU LOOK DISGUSTING', and shared my story with the world. Now I'm putting my career on the line to answer one very real, and very hard question... 'If we change the standards of beauty... do we change how we see ourselves?'

Being a part of Redefine Pretty was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. For half of my life, I felt so defeated over something I had no control over yet was made to seem like it was my fault, so I isolated myself from others because I didn't feel good enough. But not anymore, we are all beautiful in our own way, we all have something special within us. I really hope everyone who watches this and reads knows they are not alone in this, I'm sorry it's so difficult but you got this! If anybody ever needs to reach out and needs someone to talk to, you can find me on instagram @my.acne.diary. Thank you so much Em and the Creators For Change crew who did such an amazing job!
I know what you're thinking:
"But these girls are all pretty..."
Yes, they are, but don't even compare yourself to them, because you too are pretty. You might not believe it, but you are. The problem is, we can't see our beauty, but yet we can see everyone elses. Here's a tip for your confidence: quit comparing yourself to others. Love yourself. God made you who you are for a reason. Be proud of it. Don't feel judged everytime you go out. Don't feel like you have to put on makeup to even call yourself pretty. Don't feel like you have to change yourself just to be considered beautiful. Because you already are. We just don't see our beauty until we're already trying to change ourselves. I think you're beautiful, whether you do or don't, and I am here if you ever need to talk 😊.
I hate people taking pics of me cause I hate the size of my face it’s non-symmetrical and I too was never called beautiful in my family. It sucks that I have to use a filter too feel beautiful. One day I hope I can love-myself.
to the people saying that this video is sexist or closing off the problem with men’s insecurities - no. this video is just about women. yes, there could be and needs to be more talking about men’s side on this topic, but we don’t need to push down women to make it happen. this is about women. let it be about women. let’s make a better future happen for men too, but not by getting angry when women are being supported and men aren’t brought into the same thing.
Dont brainwashed you are all beautiful ladies. Just remember we all feel the same about beauty standards dont waste life feeling down about something so ridiculous. I deleted Instagram a year ago and i feel so much better ✨❤️
I feel so sad everyday, always. I always think that I'm not enough, that I'm useless, that I'm the ugliest. I've been bullied so i left school two years ago. I've tried to end my life twice in the past. It's hard to go foward, to forget all those bad words that were yelled every single day to me. I'm depressed, i have emetophobia, agoraphobia, OCD and social anxiety. It's hard; i'd love to say to everyone who's reading this that you are beautiful, you're strong, you're one of a kind. I hope that one day, in this world, people start sharing more love and less hate. Words hit harder than punches.
I for one can relate to these beautiful women, notice I said beautiful because every last one of them are..as a man that's very uncomfortable with my appearance especially my facial features I can understand..maybe not the exact same thing but I understand
I think what's worse is when you finally muster up all the courage to go out with your face covered in acne thinking that it doesn't look as bad as other days only to have it shattered when someone points out the obvious.
Its to the point where i avoid looking in the mirror because i don't want to lose that little confidence that i have for that short period of time.
Beauty and attractiveness is about taking pride in your appearance while managing around the "supposed" flaws about your looks...Losing weight, wearing makeup, styling your hair a certain way etc.. These are not forced upon by the society but by the person himself/herself...
If women feel bad just imagine how men feel because their feelings are not valid just because they are men. Multiply women's feelings by 5 and you got mens feelings. This is a pretty video but yet again it only values woman ,kinda sad.
The world would be better if everyone was nice and caring. It's impossible and it makes me sad. I would tell these girls they're unique, talented... they're young individuals and they shouldn't be so focused on their appearance, yet there's this mad society. As kids we never thought about how big our waists are or how imperfect are our faces, you know? Stop it guys. Tell everyone around you they're fabulous, give compliments. It can save someone's life.
Since I was born I have never seen humans as imperfect bodies.
When I look at people I see souls that need to be loved.
There's no such thing as perfect body and there will never be. You are not beautiful because you have good looking body, because for someone you can look average. You can be called beautiful because of who you are as a person.
I see every human beautiful by apeariance because of their variety in look.
When I look at someone I see that little, special thing like smile, cheeks, the way they look when they think really hard or when they eat and I find this beautiful.
Everyone are beautifu.
Every single good person, sad or mentally ill or physically ill deserve to be loved.
It's usually the lack of love that makes people hateful.
Just keep in mind that this is temporary and you will get over it in some years. Having acne, does not mean you are not beautiful. First of all, it doesn't affect your facial features. Mature people and adults can recognize your beauty, even if you have bad pimples all over your face. If you are young, I know kids can be mean. But there's really no reason to be ashamed because of acne. You are not the only one and you will get over it. Just ignore the mean comments and don't let them affect you because it has nothing to do with who you are. If you need advice on how to help your skin get better, let me know. I've tried many kinds of treatments :))
I’m not sure what anyone is supposed to do. The most anyone can do is just be real but She’s wearing makeup throughout the entire video. I don’t wear make up or even really use Instagram so that’s the most that can be done. Not projecting a false image...but people are going to continue to do it, so what can really be done? Having acne is rough, but I have ptsd from much worse and I don’t love the comparison here.
I literally cried after watching this! I wish I watched it a few months earlier...I had been suffering from acne like from years people used to say oh my god your acne is getting worse everytime they saw me! Guys who don't even ask me if I am alive or not also used to comment about my acne even if they met me like once in a year...but things worsened when my mom also said the same she started blaming my diet, my behaviour and infact when we argued about a thing the first thing she pointed out was that I look even uglier when I argue :( I stopped going out, I stopped taking pictures I stopped getting out of my room even cause what can you do when those who supposed to love you no matter what are disgusted of you just because of how you look ? I have never had a crush in my entire life cause I was like why would a guy want me? So I programmed myself not to consider my feelings my dreams ever I was drowning ...but then something happened IDK what exactly tho but I started accepting my flaws I tried to improve and I substantially did improve in a span of 6 months. I worked on my diet but it was already not bad, I started working out, followed a good skin regimen and now I feel way better than what I did few days ago. According to me what made the most difference was my thoughts and confidence otherwise I'd still be stuck in my room hating myself. I am still not perfect but atleast I have learned to accept myself I still don't have boyfriend , my mom still doesn't admire me but I sure look prettier to my eyes when I see myself in the mirror now :)
This video brought tears to my eyes....I've been suffering with acne since I was 12 years old....I'm now 24.....I just want to be confident in myself and feel pretty. I really wish more people understood us and what we're going through instead of putting us down and saying mean comments.
Hello sweetheart, don't worry about it. Just ignore it. It will get better, you just need to be patient. I had acne too. Luckily, I wasn't bullied that much. But it was a very hard time, so I can feel you.
All the men saying how they suffer too is completely true however, she made this video based of her own experience being a woman and how other women feel based of how society portrays women. she can’t make a video of how men feel while being a woman. Maybe a man should make a video based of their experience and other men instead of commenting negatively on this beautiful video.
All of these girls are beautiful!!!
I struggle with acne for two years now. And it destroyed my self esteem. It’s the worst. I’m working on become more confident and it’s hard. But I’m trying and if we all don’t stop trying the world become a little prettier. Your world we be a little prettier! Just don’t stop trying. You’re beautiful never forget that! ❤️
It’s harder than ever to be a woman in today’s world! Sadly the next generation of females it’s gonna be even harder! Woman are they’re own downfall when it comes to how they look! And I’m one of them!
When people ask me to define the ideal woman my answer would be
Being confident with AND withouth makeup. Loving themself for the person they are. They don't need to be an Instagram model to feel beautiful. Everyone should feel beautiful when they are confident because everyone is beautiful.
Beauty is not only in physical appearance and not base in makeup! This video moves me, I often use makeups even though I had acne marks. I was depressed when I was in high school and lost hope but I realize physical appearance fade and I read someone note that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Love yourself and be grateful for what you are. You don't need the praises of those insecure people.
I wanna be a supermodel but I'm fat and 5ft2... okay so I realize I can't be a supermodel... No big deal I make a better finance manager anyway.... come on people if your self-esteem depends on things that are out of your reach for the obvious reasons... why give two fux... Poor victims just get yourself different goals... This whole victimhood thing is stupid
These women are disgusting. They are doing exactly what they think other people are doing. They are judging solely on appearance. It was disgusting when the black girl said her ideal beauty is a white women. She literally insulted every other type of women in this world. They all want to look a certain way to be popular and they do not value kindness at all. If they did they would mention inner beauty. Humanity is disgusting. Everyone who values appearance over everything else can suffer in their own shallow disgusting ways. These women deserve to suffer. How about get over your appearance and focus on goals and to be kind to others. Stop seeking validation from people who don't give a shit about you.
Im crying right now. This video is beautiful. I’ve been dealing with severe acne since I’m 10/11 and I’m 15 now. I’m now taking the pill (because it’s hormonal) and it’s gotten better. I’m feeling confident again. But I hate that I have lived with so much insecurity for 2 years (it was really bad 2017-2018). I couldn’t look people in the eyes, i didn’t wanted to go somewhere near the sun because then my skin would be very noticeable and didn’t wanted to be on ANY pictures. My friend once told me at the time that I wouldn’t get someone to love me because my acne was that bad.
On Instagram we see all those people with clear skin standing in front of the mirror with beautiful light and no pore or pimple to be seen. Most of those pictures are face-tuned. We live in a lie.
I’m only 15 and I’m insecure about how wide my hips should be and how big my breasts should be. Thats not normal at all. Social media is eating us.
After this video I’m going to unfollow EVERY girl that I just follow because I like her face or body.
Thankyou so much for this video!!!!
This NEEDS to be go VIRAL
THIS SHOULD BE WHATS TRENDING ON SOCIAL MEDIA.I dont have ig or fb or sc cause i believe its unhealthy! But this is what this generation needs to SEE
We are all beautiful. Sometimes women envy me cause of my looks, what they dont know is how lonely i feel, how many guys have rejected me or only used me. Maybe another woman is wishing to have my hair or my skin, but maybe i would wish to be loved and respected as they may be. What im trying to say here is Sometimes we think others are better than we are, we think they have better looks, that all men fall at their feet, we think they have a happier life than we do..but what we dont know is how that human being is feeling inside, what kind of life he or she is having, what are his or her problems or insecurites...we never know and often is not what it seems...
Idk why but most people which I know who go through these situation blames the world and kept saying it's a cruel world, but it's us humans who made this beautiful world so judgmental, so cruel and so dangerous that all of us don't even want to live anymore😭😭😭
