Em Ford, former model and a beauty blogger, finally got up the courage to show her bare face on social media despite her self-consciousness about her adult acne. She started posting photos of herself without makeup on Instagram. The comments she received inspired her to produce a video that highlights the online abuse and harassment women are subjected to for not looking “flawless”. Her message is LOUD ‘n’ CLEAR ~ “You are beautiful. Don’t let anyone tell you differently, not even yourself.”
Blogger Em Ford Responds To Internet Haters: ‘Perfection Isn’t Real’
“Ford’s inspirational video has gained over 10 million views so far in less than one week. It has also encouraged people who struggle with acne and cyber-bullying to share their experiences with the hashtag #YouLookDisgusting.” ~ HuffPost
In her own words “You are beautiful – no matter how flawed you feel, no matter how upset you may about the way you look or how hard you find it to make friends, or become confident. Believe in yourself, and never let anyone tell you’re not beautiful – not even yourself.”
