no, its not weird to be insure of ur face, I have been insecure of my face for all my life, even tho I don't have acne, I have other parts of my face that I dont like and my face had caused me to have depression and one day I tried to take over my life just bc of my face... well and other reasons but my face was one of them, be proud that u r alive. :)

I'm so sorry Ethan. you shouldn't be treated like this especially with a person who deals with acne . I'm really sorry Ethan .

You are a survivor and a mentor. And you’re absolutely right. If you’re a dude and “ if putting a little powder on your face makes you feel more you, fuck it.” You only live one life. I wanna try and smile through most of mine. Keep the goods coming 🤙

There are more people that you have helped than you will ever know. I pray that there are more people like you that keeps things real. We all have skin struggles and not everyone has access to a dermatologist advice. Dr Dray has some good youtube advice for good skincare. Also, all the best actors were make up.

Normalize having acne. It’s natural and you’re bound to get at least one in your life. It doesnt define you.

Dude. This resonates on a level I can’t even describe, not even through acne I am blessed to not have suffered with that and I am so sympathetic to all who are feeling bad about themselves with that and I hope you find hope like Ethan did, but with the other circumstances in my life that made me feel the lowest I have ever been in my life and I relate to feeling like I was addicted to feeling low after a period of emotion I couldn’t control, like I didn’t know anything else but I was lying to myself. I know and remember the feeling of loving myself even though I felt worthless. I suffer with bpd and my emotions are so strong in all directions with little control in relation to the extremes but it isn’t permanent and I too have grown the most I have ever grown in the last 6 months. Yeah If hadn’t gone through what I had gone through I would never have learnt the lessons I have and made the personal growth I have made in 2020. This may be a few months late but honest to god I have never respected another human being as much as I have right now. My experiences are still raw for me, but I know it’s going to put me in a place where I can be happier in the long run and that’s a fact for everyone in life. Anyone who is struggling with their own stuff rn, look to this example and my example and any example around you that you know personally of. Life throws shit at you and it seems terrifying and intimidating to hear about and experience, but in the end it will make you a stronger human being and a happier one

Wow, I am so blown away by how incredible you are, Ethan. I really had no clue that this was such a big issue and that Ethan Dolan u**y was trending.. I had noticed that you had acne but I didn’t think it made you ugly at all and didn’t think much of it truthfully at the time! (I think I didn’t like the short hair more than anything but that’s just a preference 😜). I remember seeing your posts on Instagram and being proud then, but now watching this video (yes I’m almost 6 months behind on my RUvid subscriptions 😂), this is one of my favorite videos you’ve done. Being so vulnerable and honest with us. Showing us what being a man truly is, men can wear makeup just like women can if it helps them express themselves or feel more confident. Thank you for explaining how you got through this, because so many people can use that advice- just finding little things that bring you joy, taking one step/hold on the rocks at a time, to get through any low part in their life. Thank you for sharing this journey with us, I’m sorry people were so awful to you, but I’m so glad you found the love for yourself and confidence through this. I love you, E!! I’m always wishing the best for you ♥️

I’m struggling with acne and it seems like the only way people ever get out of it is being on accutane. This doesn’t give me hope because I know my family doesn’t have the money to pay for this. I just wish there was another way

Never had acne problem before, but seeing this video made me cry A LOT. The comments that people wrote to Ethan were so rude and so mean that got me into tears...for real. I can’t even understand how a person can feel to have the right to destroy another person just because of a skin problem... LIKE WTF?! He‘s a human being as we all are and he deserves respect as everybody does. I wanna thank both of you guys, Ethan and Grayson, for making a video like this and trying to spread good messages like this with your RUvid channel. I’m happy to see that young guys like you want to make people understand that WE ARE WHO WE ARE despite our physical aspect and that how we look does not define what we are! Thank you very very much for doing this!! WHOEVER IS READING, please be kind to everyone and respect everyone because we are ALL humans and we all have feelings!

WHY PEOPLE DO THIS ? Sometimes I feel ashamed for being a human ... acne is the worst insecurity ever , even if u got rid of your acne , the fear and the anxiety of getting them back or the left scars are the worst sh!t ... nothing worst than small thing can effect bad on u and u can't control it . that's enough people

i know no one’s gonna read this but i just feel like i need to let this out too. I’ve had acne for 8 years. I’m a sucker for skincare and used all the right products, but it didn’t help. My acne was severe. I got prescribed so many creams and stuff that was supposed to help, but it didn’t. I got prescribed strong antibiotics but they didn’t help either. After 6 years of acne i went on accutane, and it got a lot worse at first but then cleared up my skin and my confidence was starting to rise. Tho 2 years later my acne came back and it was just as bad as before accutane.. It’s now been 8 years with extreme acne and my self esteem is completely gone. It destroyed me, i had no confidence, no self esteem, no nothing. I was so insecure i never left my house without makeup. And if i slept at someone else’s house some day, i would literally sleep in my makeup to now show my acne. I’m now on accutane again and i’m in the stage where my skin is a lot worse (before it gets better). I’ve been struggling SO hard with acne and my mental health caused by it. I’ve hated myself, always, for how my skin looked. I know my skin isn’t supposed to define me or make me self conscious, but that’s just how much it affects you and how society tells you that acne is ugly etc. And it makes you feel SO not worthy of love, and not as good as others.. I hope it gets better soon 😕

E is the most grateful person. Even when he had his peak of acne he still thought of other people and how they have it worst. After he was facing his acne he had scars. Scars are marks from the past when one person was so brave that they kept it with them. From a person who has never had acne i can't put my shoes in his situation and know what E was feeling. Acne can cause many things such as anxiety, depression, trauma, or even weight loss. E kept fighting and toward the end he kept going and never stopped. In his rock climbing story it's an example i think anyone can hear even withe people who don't have acne, you can do it if you start from the bottom and take little steps to your goal you can make it. If you give on hate on someone just because of their appearance you're actually ill. Strive to the top and don't stop Ethan and anyone who is reading this and having a hard time.

Great job, Ethan! I’m really proud of you. You and your brother have set a superb example of how to go through a difficult trial - relating the downs as well as the ups, giving a step-by-step outline of your progress so others can follow those principles, and being willing to go on the record and share your emotional story with strangers (unknown friends). It takes a lot of tenacity to do what you did. Whenever you hear a negative comment, you can think of a person whose life will be affected for good by your bring willing to speak out.

actually you know what E, I recently subscribed to you guys and when I saw that makeup post on your feed I had no clue abt your acne breakout and didn't even feel that it was less manly of you to put on some powder on your face cause it's cool. who doesn't. If it really makes you feel confident then fucking do it dude. now that I now abt what was going on w you at that time, it's still cool. you made yourself confident and accept yourself and that's what matters so yeah! you go guys! I love you🙌🏻❤

I mean that's my POV atleast

Having acne makes us even more beautiful. I went through the hardest time with acne and just know YOU WILL GET THROUGH IT weather you are 14 or 22 you will get through it it took me 3 years to get rid of mine and it takes others even more but I promise it will make you grow so much that you will feel so comfortable and confident and just know that it is okay to show off your acne and pimples no matter how much they make fun of you at school or wherever just remember that you won’t even know those people in a few years show it off and say yes this is me and I am human this is normal. And no I don’t care if this whole thing sounded cheesy i love you.

Ive been dealing with heavy acne for 7 years now. It was gone until a month ago, it exploded again. I have to use accutane for the 3rd time now. I am just devastated.

I'm devastated by how many good, kind and great people experience depression and anxiety because of acne. I have been dealing with acne for almost 5 years and no matter how hard I try, acne still remains. It is difficult to deal with acne, please keep your opinions, comments and insults to yourself. People with acne have it hard enough just with themselves.

People can be such ignorant monsters. I have suffered with acne for 9 years and it has also left terrible scars on my face. It was not my fault, it was not my hygiene. These things can be because of hormones, genetics, environment, etc. Acne and scars are literally only SKIN DEEP. A persons looks and their personality has nothing to do with their skin. Discriminating against acne and calling it ugly or unattractive is as good as discriminating against someone based on the colour of the skin. It boggles my mind how obnoxious people can get when talking about people's acne. Do you have any idea how the person dealing with these spots and painful cysts is feeling? I wish the media, social standards and the beauty community could acknowledge how normal acne and scarring is. Porcelain skin romanticization has caused the same form of depression and anxiety in people as white supremacy has in people of colour. Fucking stop and actually fucking empathize.

I am a male. In the 30. If i eat allot acidic food or a mix of acidic foods i get mostly one big red cystic acne around my nose wings left or right. Tomatoes, lemon, sour fruits, histamine meats, herbal teas, probiotic foods, vit c etc. Someone relate to this and know why this happens and what to do? I miss some vitamine or mineral? I need to eat fruit once in a while and some meat but if there is a wrong mix up in a day i eat and drink with acidic foods, meat, herbal teas i get these cystic acne. Everything with acid seems to do me bad, but are good for my health. So frustrating.

I feel for anyone who struggles with acne. It really sucks. With that said, I feel much much worse for those who are not famous, not rich, and have severe acne. At least he has money and access to treatments that the vast majority of us could never afford. If you feel bad for him, maybe consider reaching out to the regular everyday people in your life who suffer from acne. They need your support far more than this privileged RUvid star does.
Alison Kruckeberg
This video HELPED me SOOO much! it actually made me cry. Feeling and relating to you and your journey just made me feel like I am not alone. I wish I knew that when I went all through school with acne COVERING my face. Life is SO hard in general. Losing your confidence and searching for that spark that you once had before...can make life a lot harder. People can seriously be so ruthless. Iv tried everything to get rid of my acne. People would bully me badly and say I was dirty.... it was hormonal acne and you cant do much about that. You just have to be patient and hold on tight because it does get worse before it gets better. That was the hardest thing to hear and witness. I am three years FREE even though some of my acne comes back here and there.. I feel like a new person. Confidence is back and now I am only left with scars. Like you were saying...I would never want to get rid of my scars completely because they showed me to be bold and confident with myself and remember that iv been on one HELL of a journey. THANK YOU so much for sharing this video. Really touched home for me and hopefully does the same for a lot more out there.

Ethan, I just found this post. Am I a troll? I really don't know, because I am a 65 year old nana. I have a 16 year old grandson who has/had acne. He was blind so I don't think he really knew why kids were laughing, but we did. I'm taking frequent breaks while typing because of the tear for you both. You could see your face, he couldnt. He had acne on his back as well. You look so sad in some of those pictures. I wish I could have found those videos and pictures when it was so bad for you. I don't know what I would have done, except call the 'perfect skin' kids our for you...But, I promise you that they still have some issues too, things they hide from their friends and families, while your skin is now clear. Please trust me on this, did I mention that I am 65? I have seen a few things. My g-son also started Accutane and it also helped him, and his skin is now clear. You do the things you have to do and you live your life. You and your brother have each others backs, and you have good hearts. I'm 65, I can tell..... I hope you go forward, Ethan, and stand up for someone else and help them. Show those sick, cruel pups what a real man is.

I have very bad acne as well and i remember just feeling alone and sad all the time just because of what my face looked like. I tried multiple different products and beauty stuff to help but nothing was working and my sin was getting worse everyday. I started getting bad grades in school to the point where i had all Fs in my grades. Then a new boy moved to our class and his face was just covered in pimples but he was just walking around like nothing was wrong. Then in the middle of class he started putting face cream on his face meanwhile i couldn't even talk about my acne in front of people without being imbrassed so i started watch his every move (like a creep) and just trying to learn how to just confess i have acne and eventally i took pictures of my self and sent it to my friends and told them that i am happy the way my face looks. My friends were happy that i was happy and in a good place, i started getting my crap together and started getting good grades and complements from people. Then i disided to talk to the boy who helped me through all this.. and thats i did and turns out he started paying attention to me more now so we started talking for days then weeks than months until we started dating and we have now been together for 3 years now and when ever we feel bad about our skin we help each other get through it. If your still here reading this i just wanna say thank you for listening to my my ace story.

I cried so much during this video just because I remembered my acne journey (still have it but it's mostly gone). I had Acne since I was 11 until 16 (now). Firstly I tried a scream which made my face burn and sometimes caused rashes (that stayed for a whole day) later on I switched to Accutane. Watching your video made me realize what an huge impact Acne had on my psyche. Not only did strangers comment on my appearance but also my family which hurted even more. I was embarassed and didn't want to go school to hide from the disgusted glimpses. Looking back I realize what a waste of time it was. Thanks for sharing E 🖤🖤

@Sila Barlas thank u so much Sıla! I'm from Turkey, (and I'm guessing maybe you're Turkish,too?) Anyways, we have roaccutane here I think it's the same. But dermatologist cost a lot of money tho...and going there every month just to give blood and stuff will cost a lot of money to me and my family. But if my acne gets worse I have no other chance other than going there and start the medication. Thank you so much for the info, I hope u can receive your ideal skin asap. Proud of youu!💕 Almanya'ya bol sevgiler

@Mood : Willy Wonka I'd love to. Though your experience can be different as I live in germany and my drug isn't exactly the same as Accutane. I mean at least it's called different (it still is prettty much the same). Anyway I don't know how it is where you are from but in order to be "allowed" to take accutane I have to go to my dermatologist monthly to let them take blood samples (to check my liver data) and do a pregnancy test (even when you are a virgin but of course not if you are a boy). I am now 8 months in. I have to admit that the first 3 months had been really rough. I' ve had anxiety and I was really moody even when the day just started I was grumpy and aggressive, which really hard to handle for my family. Although I don't think I was depressed at that time. It took 3 months till I actually started seing any progress but as soon as it started to work my skin started to clear up pretty quikly. But the months before my skin had even been getting worse. Your whole body but mostly your face and lips will be super dry all the time. I was very suprissed about that as my skin is normally extremly oily. That's why you have to drink a lot of water and use chapstick. I also gained weight during my treatment (about 10 pounds but being in quarantine might' ve had affected that hihi). Although I don't think many people experience weight gain during theirs. My psyche is better now but I still am sometimes down, which is still an huge improvement compared to my mentally unstable self from the beginning. I hope sharing my not so brief summary was somewhat helpful. I also hope I didn't terrify you with my words about what might be in store for you if you decide to take the drug. But I can guarantee you it's worth it and I would absolutely do it again. Wishing you the best of luck and sending lots of love no matter what you decide Sila

You just took the words from my mouth! But I still have acne tho. Can u talk about your accutane journey? My dermatologist recommended me to use accutane but my mom didn't want me to took it because u know all the side effects that she's been hearing. I kinda wanna experience accutane though...

Ethan isn’t being dramatic someone that has been on countless acne meds and creams literally hearing comments like that doesn’t help anything “wash ur face” fuck why didn’t just bc we have acne doesn’t mean we don’t care for about our skin and wash it I think of that doesn’t do anything other than hurt us for have problematic skin. Severe acne scars or blemishes it ain’t anyone’s fault for it. It makes u feel shit about ourselves even when I saw Ethan gettin I was thinking ew I was thinkin damn that’s tough bc I get that feeling of your just act up out of no where his acne wasn’t even that bad I’m happy they posted this. And I’m happy that Ethan has a brother that helped him and stood up for him in this time ETHAN your skin is beautiful acne or no acne. 🌝
