Hailey Bieber just revealed she has an ovarian cyst “the size of an apple”

“It’s painful and achy”

Hailey Bieber might be “beyond excited” about the release of her Forbes ‘30 under 30’ cover, but that doesn’t mean the mogul’s life is a walk in the park.

Just hours before the origin story of Rhode Skin was shared with the public — a journey that’s caused Bieber “to pinch myself on the daily” —  she shared with her Instagram followers that she’s been struggling with an ovarian cyst “the size of an apple.”

And this isn’t the first time either.

“I don’t have endometriosis or PCOS,” the creator of the glazed donut skin method clarified, but she has “gotten an ovarian cyst a few times and it’s never been fun.”

Pictured with her jumper lifted to reveal her bloated stomach, she added the disclaimer “not a baby” tagged to her abdomen, Bieber explained to her fans “[that] it’s painful and achy, and makes me feel nauseous and bloaty, and crampy and emotional.” 

“I’m sure a lot of you can overly relate and understand,” she shared.


Hailey Bieber isn’t the only celebrity keen to share her experience. Keke Palmer’s public portrayal of the realities of living with acne and polycystic ovarian syndrome has been eye opening.

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).
