1) What is Models With Acne ?
Models with Acne is a community space for women liberation to feel beautiful. Our space is for you to practice self care; retrain the mindset to appreciate yourself and leave behind self consciousness.We are here to maintain a balance on how us as women view beauty, where women do not develop an unhealthy behavior such as piling a ton of makeup on, using airbrush and photoshop tools excessively on social media, or even stopping yourself from taking part of an activity due to your insecurities.We are here to promote self acceptance and self confidence. Women that may have skin issues such as acne, hyperpigmentation, eczema as well as women with no underlying skin issues such as aging beauty, richer toned women and women with clear skin, who feel like it's a requirement to cover up or feel ashamed of what is natural to them.We want women to have the privilege of feeling equally beautiful with bareface or makeup on.We are here to remove the stigma of imperfections.

My name is Fanta Ndao and I'm 24 years old. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York by West African immigrant parents. I'm a full-time student at Aveda Institute; studying esthiology. I truly find happiness in making my own natural skin care/hair care products in my spare time, it is a connection with my mind, body, and soul. In my opinion, anything organic natural whether it is the plant, the seeds, or the oil it all has a relationship with each individual human being and you may find a product that really connects with you whether it is physically or mentally. I struggle with acne prone skin for a number of years and I was in the modeling industry where there was a lot of pressure in fitting what was made the standard of beauty. I decided to stop modeling around the age of 22, To find true contentment in my life. In the past, I find myself seeking people's approval which didn't make sense to me due to my beliefs which is that I’m the creation of god so I should only be seeking validation from my creator. I want to purify my mindset and not allowing negative people get in the way of how I live or view myself. My experiences lead me to have a beautiful vision to start the initiative Models with Acne which is creating a space for liberation for all women to feel beautiful.
