Bianca Gonzalez: ‘To anyone suffering from acne, know you are not alone’

Bianca Gonzalez took to social media to show she can very much relate to those suffering from acne problems. 

The television host shared a no-filter selfie of her breaking out as well. 

“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 stories and got overwhelming messages from so many of you,” she wrote.

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 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 to 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. As a short back story, I tried a retinol cream at yun pala, hindi ako hiyang. I consulted my doctor and she helped me with it. This whole quarantine I have not gone to the derma (kasi afraid #pandemic), I have just stuck to my personal no-fail few skin care steps (I am hiyang to Cetaphil, Olay and SK-II #notanad just sharing). Kaso nung nag-try ako ng bago, ayun, nalagot. So, to anyone suffering from acne, don't think "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 🤍🤍🤍

Her past post on her Instagram story said: “I know there are much bigger problems in the world right now, but to anyone suffering from acne, know that you are not alone.”

The mother of two explained that she wanted to share this to anyone experiencing the same thing to know that their feelings are valid despite the “bigger things” going on in the world. 

“Again, yes, napakaraming mas malaking problema, but I feel you na nakakababa talaga ng self-esteem kapag nag-breakout, lalo at mandalas sa WFH, mukha talaga nating ang nakikita ng iba,” she said. 

She then shared her short skincare routine for her followers who asked for it. She said she has been using her “no-fail” skincare steps since she couldn’t go to the dermatologist because of the pandemic. 

“So, to anyone suffering from acne, don’t think ‘you’re not supposed to feel bad’ about such a ‘small’ problem. Your feelings are valid,” she reminded her 2.4 million followers on the platform.
