VIDEO: #YouLookDisgusting message about acne and beauty goes viral

Beauty blogger Em Ford of My Pale Skin began posting selfies of herself without make-up three months ago. Since then she has received over 100,000 comments on her appearance.

She has collected the comments and created this powerful video called You Look Disgusting. It has been viewed almost 60,000 times overnight.

Take a look for yourself.

Without make-up Em receives all kinds of abuse from "Her face is so ugly" to "revolting". Yet with make-up she is "perfect".

However, she still receives make-up shaming too, just like NikkieTutorials who spoke out about the same recently.

"This is false advertising."

It ends on an inspiring note: "You are beautiful. Don't let anyone tell you differently. Not even yourself."

Viewers and fans have taken to Twitter to show support using the #YouLookDisgusting hashtag.
