Celebrities Who Aren't Afraid To Show They Have Acne

It sometimes seems like famous women have it all. But, at the end of the day, they’re only human. And, like most humans, that means celebrities deal with the same breakouts of pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and hormonal acne that the rest of us know so well.

One of the nicest shifts that is occurring, thanks to social media sites like Instagram, is the willingness that many celebs now have to share their lives with fans — the good, the bad, and the pimply. Instead of putting on a perfect façade that keeps fans at arm’s length, they’re embracing their imperfections and broadcasting them to the world to prove how much we have in common. So, okay, we may not, literally, be living the life of Kylie, but as the youngest Jenner sister showed in a series of Snapchats, she, too, gets breakouts and pimples. Jenner was even kind enough to let us in on the product she uses when acne rears its head: Mario Badescu Drying Lotion, a pink treatment with salicylic acid and sulfur that dries up pimples while you sleep.

And Jenner isn’t the only one letting the world in on the reality of her skincare needs. These 5 celebrities aren’t at all afraid to show they have acne.

Lorde

Lorde

She’s as unpretentious as celebs can get, so it comes as little surprise that Lorde would be totally honest when it comes to details about her skin. The singer has used her Instagram to post side-by-side pictures of edited versions of her skin, clear of all signs of acne, and photos that aren’t photoshopped and show that she has acne. Other selfies give us a glimpse at her nighttime acne skincare routine. And she encourages fans to think of their “flaws” as normal and nothing that should cause shame.

Gabrielle Union

The Almost Christmas star has seriously beautiful skin, but even Gabrielle Union experiences the occasional breakout. And she isn’t afraid of documenting it on Instagram, where delights fans with makeup-free selfies that show she, too, isn’t immune to a pimple or two (but, let’s be serious, she still looks amazing).

Brie Larson

Brie Larson

Brie Larson is under constant scrutiny lately and the paparazzi photos keep coming, whether or not she has a zit. But Larson was hilariously on point when she revealed on Instagram that she put too much extra-strength spot treatment on a pimple the night before and it only made her zit worse — and, of course, she and the zit were snapped in a red carpet photo because the show must go on.

Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling

Add Mindy Kaling to the list of super successful actresses who keep it real with pimple cream selfies. And her jokes make it all the better and more relatable: “That zit cream in your 30s life,” she wrote. “At least I’m not going on The Tonight Show later today.”

Dakota Fanning

Another serious actress who doesn’t take herself so seriously, Dakota Fanning is the kind of woman who shares makeup free selfies and pokes fun at her situation. Her caption on one Instagram selfie was everything: “Forever bruised knee caps, Mario Badescu pimple cream and a semi-sexy colonial nightgown = A BANGING TUESDAY NIGHT.”
