"A work of art is only the medium of an idea it conveys. Period. The way in which we utilize our body had no other goal than to transfer our metaphysical ideas in to a realistic dimension, to let our subconscious roam free and give birth to our utopias. Obviously the fact that the body is being used as a medium to transpose "the centre of gravity of art towards real life" (Arnaud Labelle Rojoux) raises a series of problems of political and social nature. We do not reinterpret with impunity what is our main interface with the world. The world which ultimately only sees this exhibition of the self as something obscene- we are, after all, embodying something that so far was only fantasy- we do not play with our fears so easily, because this is exactly what it entails: Fear. Fear of the last and first judgement, fear on which our society has based it's grounds and our parents our education, fear of the inevitable pain in our approach, and lastly, fear of having reached a point of no return."

•long caption• Stepping outside of alllllll comforts zones for #nomakeupnovember today; Typically I'd rather eat a banana or pickle and watch ET than post a photo with no makeup on. With a platform that is so focused on image, this one is more for me than y'all. To some makeup is an art but for others it's an everyday mask. Posting a no makeup photo doesn't make anyone any kind of brave soul for exposing their *gasp* natural face but it's a scary concept for me and a polar opposite from my last post. We apologize for lots of things, but why do we apologize when people see us without makeup, Facetune or editing? Why does makeup feel necessary to go day-off run errands? Good question. This was cheesy, but it's a step. It's not another scary Halloween post on your feed, just a bare faced (and ONE FILTER okay jc) me. #facescars
DAY 68: I’ve spent so much of my life trying to hide my true self because of my acne. Id spend hours every morning making myself into what I thought I needed to be, and it just turned me into someone who was so disconnected from my true self. I was extemely insecure, I would take 200 pictures trying to find the ‘perfect one’ and to get likes but then would wake up looking nothing like that girl in and hating myself. It’s a really slow journey for me stripping myself back to my core, I’ve taken out some piercings and I’ve dyed my hair back to more natural as I realised I had these certain ‘attributes’ just to fit in with a the alternative crowd, and felt I wasn’t acceptable to just be me as nobody else was doing it, I never really admitted I did these things to fit in because until now I genuinely never actually realised I was doing it, and was so blinded. I can’t wait until my skin gets better but for the time being this is me and if I can learn to love myself like this, nothing can stand in my way. I’m still too insecure to go out to public events without any makeup on, but at least I’m starting to feel more comfortable in my own presence I guess 🙌🏼 #acne#roaccutane#cysticacne#acnejourney#acnecommunity#acnesucks#acnesufferer#adultacne#acnescars#nomakeup#roaccutanejourney#acnesupport#roaccutanestory#accutane#accutanejourney#myskin#roaccutanediary#icepickscars#boxcarscars#indentedscars#facescars#rollingscars#acnetreatment#blogger

Non c'è trucco e non c'è inganno. Solo un po' di cicatrici
As a teenager I am one of the many who has struggled with acne. I have been dealing with it for around 2 years and it’s not something I am proud of. These are some pictures that are more recent because my past acne was bad and I am too embarrassed to show. As a human being of course maybe your going to be self conscious about your face , and if your not please help anyone who is because your lucky. I have tried so many things on my face ranging from random face masks and face washes to prescribed pills, acne scrubs, and serums. Maybe if I used them like I should they would work maybe a little better but i have to admit when I was on my grind with them they didn’t do anything spectacular. My acne comes from stress mostly. And maybe because I have a little to much dairy. And maybe because I am a teenager and y hormones are just going for it haha. But I just wanted to share this so you know your not alone. But honestly my acne doesn’t affect me as much anymore. When I go out I can leave without foundation. I smile and i don’t care. It only affects me when people point it out which is so out of place on their part because why would someone make fun of your acne when they don’t know how self conscious you are about it? To anyone who is struggling you are beautiful and never forget! Love you self just the way you are because you are perfect! If you wanna talk I am here

Your thoughts on owning physical scars??? I was bit by a dog when I was five. I’ve had a scar on my face ever since. I’m missing my right, upper lip (that area is actually the inside of my mouth that was stretched and sewn so that it was on the outside). Lately, it’s been a huge distraction for me when I see myself in photos/video (unless it’s a mirror image bc I’m so used to seeing myself in a mirror). Sometimes it’s all I see and I find it so ugly. I just want to hide. Not a peaceful way to live.
I’ve been pondering the idea of owning it. Meaning that I just accept that this is me and I live life fully anyway. No worrying about which side of my face is towards the camera, whether I should bold lipstick, etc. just live my life however I want.
I think this is totally doable with badass scars. I don’t feel like this scar is badass. I feel like my face is disfigured. Idk how to own that.
What are your thoughts? Not your thoughts about me and my best life and what you “think is the right thing to say”. I’m in no mood for that. Put yourself in my shoes. Could you own this scar? Should you? Serious thoughts on this wanted! #scars#physicalscars#disfigured#owningscars#facescars#facialscars (side note: some people notice the scar and some don’t. I’ve had enough people of each speak to me about this that I know this is fact.)
