Elaine Mokk was 18 when she took a video of herself where she courageously sat in front of the camera without any make up showing people the chronic acne she suffered from.
This is a makeup tutorial technically, but she wanted to make it to encourage people who also struggle with acne, sharing her story with everybody as she is aware that many people are affected by this issue.
Elaine says that when she speaks with someone she notices people’s eyes travelling on her face which makes her feel very sad and she really wants to cry sometimes, making her even more insecure.
At some points in their lives, 85% of Americans suffer from the same issue and it is considered the most common skin disorder as well as the greatest source of insecurity and embarrassment.
Elaine’s issue is considered intense with deep acne lesions which appear red and inflamed.
The acne may progress into cysts which can disfigure the skin.
All the treatments on the market may not improve her condition.
She has tried lots of remedies for improving her skin but without any actual results.
When she posted the video, Elaine made a decision to go on Accutane, highly controversial drug which is intended for such cases.
Her skin improved significantly since she started using it.
She is grateful for the makeup tutorial, but is much happier now that she does not have to undergo such extensive routines so that she can go outside each day.
It is highly important to share the messages about the body since there are many people who struggle with it, or some aspect of it.
