Cystic acne sufferer shows off her 'insane' skin transformation (and it's all thanks to this miracle foundation)

'This foundation is insane.'

30 Jan 2019

As anyone who has suffered from cystic acne knows only too well, the condition can be painful and wreck havoc with your confidence.

While we hugely support skin positivity movements that encourage people to display their acne in all its glory, we also appreciate that some sufferers are keen to conceal theirs.

So, when we read about one cystic acne sufferer's 'holy grail' product, we had to share it.

Abbie Bull, who candidly documents her struggles with cystic acne on her YouTube channel and social media, took to her Makeup By Abbie B YouTube channel to share a miracle product she swears by for concealing her acne.

According to Fabulous, Abbie swears by Huda Beauty's #FauxFilter Foundation, £32, as the secret to her "insane" transformation.

@hudabeauty faux filter foundation is INSANE. A lot of people ask if it breaks me out even more and it doesn’t, I also love the smell of it 😩😂 I’m dying for her to see my posts using her foundation, if she shared we can get #skinpositivity to millions of people so tag her if you can! I’m determined to get the message out there that we are beautiful with or without makeup, acne sufferers deserve to be in the light as much as anyone else and not feel the need to hide away. I CHOOSE to put makeup on because I like being creative, not because I have to. I love myself both ways and you guys should too 💗 @shophudabeauty #acnepositivity #acne #makeup #hudabeauty #shophudabeauty #fauxfilterfoundation #makeupartist #anastasiabeverlyhills #loveyourself

She shared before and after snaps on her Instagram page to show the effects of the Crème Brulée shade.

As well as showing off her transformation, she gave her followers an insight into her acne journey, explaining: "People tell me I'm so brave and say 'how can you go outside?' But I've been there. I've had spots that were on my face for months.

"They really, really got me down. And hurt. Even when I was eating, when I was talking.

"Sometimes I would skip meals because eating just hurt that much. It got to me.

"I thought I was disgusting to look at.

"It took me a few days to bring myself back from that.

"I was so down and grumpy and agitated because of my skin. That's not the person I wanted to be.

"Why should I feel belittled because I have acne or feel judged when I leave the house?"
