Addison Rae gets real about dealing with acne

“Not feeling my best lately”

BEAUTYcrew Beauty Editor / June 10 2022

Whether it’s the filters they use on social media or the A-list makeup artists they use for red carpet events, it can be hard to imagine celebrities having skin issues.

But as it turns out, not even the rich and famous are safe from experiencing the occasional outbreak of confidence-killing acne

TikTok sensation Addison Rae may seem like a happy-go-lucky gal when she’s pumping out quick choreographed routines to chart-topping hits on her TikTok account. 

But she just uploaded a video that gives her fans a sneak peek into her current mindset and the reality of a young woman living with acne.

Rae let the telling caption speak for itself as she twisted her bare face side-to-side to zoom into the cluster of breakouts and acne scars on her cheeks. 

“Not feeling my best lately but deciding to be happy with my skin when I wish it was different,” it read. 

This isn’t the first time the content creator has dropped the proverbial veil with her fans. She even gets up close and personal with her camera on the days she’s rocking a natural, no-makeup look. And for that, we appreciate her!

Addison Rae’s not the only celeb who struggles with breakouts. Madelaine Petsch swears by pimple patches for keeping hers under control on the Riverdale set.

Briar Clark got her start in the media industry in 2017, as an intern for Marie Claire and InStyle. Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently. A big believer in self love and experimentation, Briar has made a point of becoming the Australian beauty industry’s unofficial guinea pig for unusual treatments and daring hair trends. When she’s not testing out the latest beauty launches, Briar is big on broadening her horizons, mostly in the form of food but she’s also partial to travelling to new destinations both near and far (and of course, allocating an extra bag to bring their best beauty offerings home with her).
