Riverdale star Lili Reinhart has always been amazingly candid when it comes to talking about her struggle with cystic acne — and this weekend is no exception. Case in point: On Saturday evening, the 24-year-old actor shared an adorable selfie in which she’s wearing acne stickers on her forehead, and well, it’s a perfect reminder that even celebrities get pimples from time to time (or all the time).
In the photo, which she shared on her Instagram Story, Reinhart is smiling with her eyes closed and cupping one side of her face in a loving way. “Cystic acne is keeping me company on this Saturday night,” she writes on top of the selfie, along with: “Thank you, wife @charlihoward for inventing these beautiful flower patches @squish.beauty.“
Naturally, the vegan skin-care brand reposted Reinhart’s photo, and the post has since amassed countless comments from fans leaving messages like, “Aww she looking so happy ❤️👑,” “Wow, lili is so damn beautiful ✨,” and “I NEED that squishbabe glow.”
Now, fans of the Swimming Lessons author will know that this is far from the first time she’s opened up about dealing with acne. For instance, the actor previously told People that she finds it “therapeutic” to share photos of her acne on social media because her fans remind her she’s not alone. “It also shows other people that it’s okay to break out,” she said.
Needless to say, we love Lils for being so honest and real about her skin, as it truly is an amazing reminder that no one is immune to acne — not even seemingly perfect celebrities.
