Having acne in a society where flawless skin is the beauty standard can knock confidence and self-esteem.

Fortunately, TikTok and other social media platforms have brought forth a wave of influencers who candidly reveal their bare skin, open up about their struggles with imperfections and share makeup techniques for all skin types.

One of them is Alix Earle, a social media personality who skyrocketed to TikTok stardom by openly discussing her battle with acne. As of writing, she has 6.1 million followers on the platform.
