Like a lot of girls, YouTuber Reshma likes posting makeup tutorials. But her scarred face definitely sets her apart from her peers.
In 2014, Reshma's brother-in-law allegedly threw sulfuric acid in her face while she visited Northern India to take an exam. The attack caused her to lose her left eye and resulted in severe burns and disfigurement.
As part of her videos, Reshma is hoping to raise awareness for the campaign, Make Love Not Scars, which seeks to ban the over-the-counter sale of acid, which is surprisingly easy to purchase in India.

Unfortunately, the brunette beauty's story is all too common. According to the BBC, there are approximately 1,000 acid attacks in India every year with 90% of the victims being women. A common motive is a man seeking revenge after getting rejected.
While the Asian country has implemented stricter punishment for perpetrators, it's still relatively simple to obtain the liquid.
