When Ashley VanPevenage suffered an allergic reaction to benzoyl, which caused her face to break out, she turned to friend and makeup artist Andreigha Wazny to help cover it up.
But when Wazny posted the before and after pics on Instagram and Twitter, the images were turned into several cruel memes.
"I don't understand how people can do this and I can't figure out how to conceal a single pimple on my face," reads one of the memes, while another says, "The reason why you gotta take a bitch swimming on the first date."
Needless to say, the "disturbing and nasty comments" made the Tacoma Community College student extremely self-conscious.
"After this picture was posted and I read all these comments, I lost my confidence," the 20-year-old says in a video responding to the myriad of memes. But VanPevenage adds that she won't let a few Internet bullies get her down.
"I realized that that isn't the person I am and people's opinions don't matter to me and they shouldn't matter to anyone," she shares. "Everyone should feel beautiful in their natural skin and it doesn't matter what's on the outside of your face."
