Lili Reinhart might be one of the stars of a hit television series and also dating Cole Sprouse but she wants you to know that she has struggles of her own. The 21-year-old took to Instagram Stories this week to remind fans she has cystic acne and she is more than okay with it.
Reinhart posted a selfie showing off her face dotted with what appears to be acne or pimple cream–likely Mario Badescu’s cult product Drying Lotion, which the star has confirmed she uses. Reinhart captioned the photo: “Hi I’m Lili. I’m 21, a Virgo, Cali-girl. And I have cystic acne. Hmu [hit me up].”
The actor has been vocal about her skin problems in the past, telling Teen Vogue she doesn’t let “a pimple on my face decide what I do and where I go.” Cystic acne refers to blemishes that are deep in the skin and therefore aren’t as easy to treat as the average pimple. The actor has previously revealed her skincare routine for managing acne via Instagram, which includes a clay mask, a smoothing peel, a detox mask, a treatment oil and of course Mario Badescu’s Drying Lotion.
For other people suffering from acne, hearing Reinhart joke about her struggles and embrace her skin the way it is certainly a refreshing departure from what we usually see from Hollywood.
