In her caption, the ABS-CBN talent wrote, "No filter. Obviously [three laughing emoji]. I know this might raise eyebrows or make some people say 'yuck' but I shared a picture of my skin breakout a few days ago on Stories and got overwhelming messages from so many of you."
In her posts, Bianca has been telling her followers that acne isn't exactly the most pressing issue in today's situation.
Addressing "anyone suffering from acne," she assured, "Know that you are not alone."
The social-media personality reiterated, "Again, yes, napakaraming mas malaking problema, but I feel you na nakakababa talaga ng self-esteem kapag nag-breakout, lalo at madalas sa WFH [work from home], mukha talaga natin ang nakikita ng iba."
She acknowledged that finding the right skin-care products for acne problem might be extra tough, especially with the pandemic limiting going out on unnecessary errands.
Bianca wrote, "As a short back story, I tried a retinol cream at yun pala, hindi ako hiyang. I consulted my doctor and she helped me with it.
"This whole quarantine I have not gone to the derma (kasi afraid #pandemic), I have just stuck to my personal no-fail few skin care steps...
"Kaso nung nag-try ako ng bago, ayun, nalagot."
Bianca then assured her followers again that it's okay to feel down about their skin breakouts.
"So, to anyone suffering from acne, don't think 'you're not supposed to feel bad' about such a 'small' problem. Your feelings are valid!
"Consult a derma if you can sa Telemedicine apps. And know na hindi ka nag-iisa."
