Abigail Collins spends two hours every morning applying concealer and foundation to her face to mask her breakouts. Now, she doesn’t date anyone because she fears that someone might accuse her of catfishing.
The 19-year-old student’s problem with her skin first started when she was only 10 years old. Her breakouts became more frequent over the years and she was diagnosed with cystic acne. While she struggled for a long time, Abigail said that moving to university helped her accept her condition. However, she still steers clear of men.
“I’ve struggled to get into relationships as I was so self-conscious about my skin and how it looked, especially to someone romantically, so I tried, and still do, to avoid this.”
When she turned 14, Abigail explained that her acne got really bad. She also said that when she was at school, she was the “elephant in the room” and was picked on because she looked so different from other girls. She would spend up to two hours trying to hide her condition.
“I felt like I had to wear makeup every day for school and I was often late because I had to make sure everything was covered so it would take me one or two hours to get ready.”
But after moving away to attend college, Abigail began to feel more comfortable leaving the house make-up free. She noticed that no one cared how she looked. She eventually stopped wearing makeup around her second year.
Now, Abigail only wears makeup when she and her friends go for a night out.
Knowing that there are a lot of people out there who are also struggling with the same skin problem like her, Abigail shares her journey on Instagram. She is encouraging them to love themselves and learn to accept their flaws.
