How to Bypass Field Filter Validation Exception when the record is updated via Trigger

Hi -
I have a Field Filter Validation on Lookup Field CutonFieldA__c on Account Object . The Account is related to Custon Object B . When I make any updates to my related record (from Custom B) , Some of the fields on Account gets updated .

But suppose I have a value already populated on CutonFieldA__c  field on Account , which is now not satisfying the filter condition . If I try to update my related record (from Custom B) , I am able to Save the record succeffuly , but the values on the Account are not getting updated because of the FIELD_FILTER_VALIDATION_EXCEPTION Error .

This way user is not getting to know that the changes didn't flow to Parent recod . 
Can you please suggest me on this?

It is not possible for triggers to ignore validation rules without adding custom logic

You can try below steps as a workaround:
> Add a "Skip Validation" Checkbox field to the object
> Set the "Skip Validation" field to TRUE in a before trigger.
> Add logic to your validation rules so that they do not execute if "Skip Validation" is set to TRUE.

Else you can check using custom settings to bypass validation rule.
