Kyline Alcantara admits that her struggle with acne breakouts in 2018 took a toll on her confidence.

As a celebrity, she felt the pressure to always look her best, especially as people bashed her for her skin condition.

In a recent Zoom interview hosted by Ever Bilena, Kyline told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), "Of course, it was a struggle at first ‘cause there’s a lot of people that are bashing me because of my skin.

"They always say na, 'Artista ka, bakit ganyan yung skin mo? Dapat role model ka sa mga tao. Dapat hindi ganyan yung balat mo.'"

The experience taught Kyline to brush off the negativity so she could protect her mental health.

"[I'm] like, 'Why are you expecting me to be perfect?' Bakit ine-expect ng mga tao na porke't artista ka, you always need to be perfect, you always need to be ready every single time."

"I mean, yes it’s our job, but we’re humans too. So yeah, it’s a struggle, but eventually na-realize ko rin po na may masasabi at masasabi lahat ng tao.

"May gawin ka mang totoo, I mean tama, may masasabi pa rin sila. May gawin ka mang mali, may masasabi pa rin sila. So just live your freaking life."

The 19-year-old actress also learned to pick products that work for her skin. She became particularly discerning when it comes to make-up, since this tends to clog the pores which then causes acne breakouts.

Kyline told the press, "Sobrang sensitive po kasi ng skin ko and siguro nasa... bawal po kasi sa akin yung oily, na parang yung may oil na paggawa dun sa ingredients. Siguro sa ganoon lang.

"And, siguro yung... sobrang sensitive kasi talaga ng skin ko, e, kaya perfect sa akin yung Ever Bilena. Kasi even though, nasa drug-store make-up na siya, super-duper affordable siya."

She continued, "Yun yung parang good thing sa kanya, e, super affordable, maganda yung quality, mura talaga siya.

"As in super and okay pa siya sa skin ko... for Filipina skin, of course, for sensitive skin also."

She said, "Ever since pa naman, yung blush, yung nag-o-overlap siya dito [sa may nose]. Drunk blush yun.

"Yun yung gusto ko kasi para siyang sunkissed look. Para kang nag-beach all day. Hehe! And yes, sa TikTok [ko siya na-discover]."

Kyline also learns new make-up hacks from her make-up artists on set. One thing she shared was how to keep her blush in place even if she puts her face masks on.

She said, "The secret is layering talaga. Layering as much as you like, a bit more until it’s a little bit more intense than you want them to be. And then powder 'tapos setting spray.

"Setting spray is the key to success, promise. Yun talaga yung parang for me, such a good beauty make-up hack."

As for skin care, Kyline still believes that less is more.

She explained, "Kasi before ang dami ko ina-apply sa face ko, like oil on top of moisturizer, on top of serum, on top of clindamycin [antibiotic used for the treatment of a number of bacterial infections].

"Marami talaga and parang na-o-overwhelm yung skin ko. And parang nagka-clog siya sa pores ko.

"So ngayon na nag-pandemic, siyempre hindi ako nagme-make-up lagi, hindi ako lumalabas lagi, so na-realize ko na naging kalmado yung face ko.

"Wala ako masyado nilalagay sa face ko. So less is more and less is better."
