The acne model

Post by Katiedot on Mon Jul 02 2012, 11:54

I think you all know my fascination for appearances and the reality of what lies beneath. I came across this fascinating video. Still not sure that I completely believe the transformation but thought I'd share in case anyone else find it interesting too.

Cassandra Bankson posted a heart touching video showing what she neesd to put on her face to hide her massive acne.

yeah I saw the video, it's getting quite a buzz in France too...
there's a lot of comments, pros and cons. Not show sure how I feel about it, the end result is amazing, yet it really shows we shouldn't believe anything we see in those models. It's crazy how much work it is. On a side note apparently the budget for such a make up is nothing like mere mortals can afford !

Yes, didn't they say she goes through something like $2000 a month on products?

Not sure which I feel more strongly: happy that this far into the 21st century we have the beauty products that can transform a woman like this, or disappointed that this far into the 21st century women still need to be transformed.

Women will always need to be made more beautiful. It's the nature of the beast. LOL

This looks like A LOT of trouble to go through to look flawless. On the tape it took 10 minutes, in real life probably longer. A popular product advertised in US (and maybe worldwide) is ProActive. That works wonders too.

there is makeup out there that will do that. It's like someone is putting bondo on your face, like they do for car dent repairs.

http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Acne/Pages/Causes.aspx

Acne in adults

Over 80% of cases of adult acne occur in women. It is thought that many cases of adult acne are caused by the changes in hormone levels that many women have at certain times.

These times include:

Periods – some women have a flare-up of acne just before their period is due.

Pregnancy – many women have symptoms of acne in pregnancy, usually during the first three months of their pregnancy.

Polycystic ovary syndrome – this poorly understood but common condition can cause acne as well as weight gain and the formation of small cysts inside the ovary.

In some people, acne can be a side effects of medication, such as steroid medication and lithium (which is often used to treat depression and bipolar disorder).

Acne myths


Despite being one of the most widespread skin conditions, acne is also one of the most poorly understood. There are many myths and misconceptions about it, including:

"Acne is caused by a poor diet." There is no evidence that diet plays a role in acne. Eating a healthy, balanced diet is recommended because it is good for your heart and your health in general. However, it will not help your acne.

"Acne is caused by having dirty skin and poor hygiene." Most of the biological reactions that trigger acne occur beneath the skin, not on the surface of the skin.
Therefore, how clean your skin is will have little to no effect on your acne. You should wash every day and wash your face twice a day. More frequent washing will make no difference to your acne and could make symptoms worse by aggravating your skin.

"Squeezing blackheads, whiteheads and spots is the best way to get rid of acne." Squeezing or picking your acne could make your symptoms worse and may leave you with permanent scarring.

"Sexual activity can influence acne." Having sex or masturbating will not make acne any worse or any better.

"Sunbathing, sunbeds and sunlamps help improve the symptoms of acne." There is no conclusive evidence that prolonged exposure to sunlight or using sunbeds or sunlamps can improve acne.
However, many medications used to treat acne can make your skin more sensitive to light, so prolonged exposure could cause painful damage to your skin. There is also an increased risk of getting skin cancer.

"Acne is infectious." You cannot pass acne on to other people and it is not infectious.
