These Acne Bloggers Are Dispelling Any Misunderstandings You Have About Their Beauty

From the 7+ million beauty videos that make up the vlogs on Youtube, it’s easy to tell that not everyone has picture-perfect skin. From eczema to rosacea, you can catch them all being exposed on Youtube, whether inadvertently or not, as vloggers expose and prep their skin on screen for the ultimate makeovers. When it comes to acne, the most common skin condition to affect 50 million men and women across the U.S., exposure to the very real skin condition online is no different. In recent years, thanks to the normalization of skin conditions, YouTubers have brought a heavy dose of reality to the mainstream beauty industry, reminding audiences that none of us have poreless, flawless skin. Latina bloggers have been a huge part of this exposure.

Here’s a look at 5 Latina beauty bloggers slaying the game all while dealing with acne.

Rocio Cervantes

The self-described makeup addict has been dealing with acne since she was 17 years old. Now 25, the Latina beauty blogger has worked to speak about all of the issues that can be caused by acne including depression, anxiety, and stress. While Cervantes often reveals her acne marks and scars on her pages, she’s often been honest about feeling a need to hide them. “If anyone watched my IG stories then you would know I’ve been dealing with a lot of breakouts that cause me to not be able to put on makeup for days or even weeks it’s very stressful, depressing and sad because I am so passionate about makeup and putting out content for y’all!”
