“I can’t control my pimples, but I can change the way I look at them.”
Acne affects over 50 million people annually, making it the most common skin condition amongst Americans. But while most people feel the need to cover up their pimples, French illustrator Izumi Tutti chooses to embrace hers by turning them into constellations.
“Ever since I was a child I always had many insecurities. Every time I read a magazine or watched a movie, I always saw the same kind of look being represented,” Tutti told BuzzFeed.
“I felt like we were being taught that only looking a certain kind of way would make you happy.”
