The young actress-singer posted bare pictures of her face on social media for all the world to see. According to Kyline, it started out with one zit last March 2018 and it quickly spread all over her face. "Imagine people are always expecting you to be at your best, to look perfect, to look like the polished girl they always see in TV and magazines but you can't even look at yourself in the mirror," Kyline wrote.
Kyline also shared she would often get criticized for putting too much cosmetic products on her face to conceal her breakouts. "I was bashed and bullied for putting too much make-up (people telling me na ang kapal ng make-up mo pero puro ka pa din tigyawat)" Little did people know that her skin condition also had a psychological effect on her. "What they don't know is make-up na lang yung kakampi ko noon. Concealers and foundations are my best friends."
In the end, Kyline went on to send out a powerful message about accepting yourself and your own uniqueness. "Accept your uniqueness and use it to your advantage and represent yourself proudly thru it."
Being able to accept your flaws is a brave thing to do and we gotta say, we're proud of you, Kyline! Meanwhile, Kyline was recently featured on the all-new MYX Live! Check out her performances here:
