Stars are people too, and they get acne just like the rest of us. But it doesn't hurt to be reminded now and then.
That's why we love Brie Larson's latest Instagram pic. The 26-year-old Room actress' picture shows her on the red carpet with a big red arrow pointing to a pretty conspicuous pimple.
Larson captioned the photo, "When you're stressing/obsessing over a zit so you put on too much zit cream before bed and wake up to giant dry spot but you gotta get your photo taken anyway."
And her Instagram followers are just loving her candor. "This is why everyone adores you...we value how real you are," one fan commented.
With this relatable post, Larson joins the ranks of other celebrities who aren't afraid to post a bare-faced, pimply picture now and then.
One pioneer of the pimple pride movement was actress and singer Miley Cyrus. We all know Cyrus isn't afraid to post controversial things on Instagram—and acne pics are no exception.
The 23-year-old recently posted a photo of herself wearing acne spot cream captioned, "when yiew match yo shirt," apparently annoyed at her bothersome blemishes.
These kinds of imperfect pics serve a larger purpose: they prove that celebs can make fun of themselves and aren't afraid to show their fans what they look like on a day-to-day basis.
Actress Daisy Ridley is also known for her fresh-faced honesty. The 24-year-old Star Wars: The Force Awakens actress recently posted a photo of herself wearing acne cream on Instagram, captioning the post, "ACTUALLY, why not?" and hashtagging "#spotcreamwin."
Lorde, 19, also made waves a few years ago after calling out photoshoppers for removing her acne without permission.
"i find this curious," she remarked, "two photos from today, one edited so my skin is perfect and one real. remember flaws are ok :-)"
Lorde has also posted photos of herself unapologetically wearing acne spot cream on Instagram. You go, girl!
Mindy Kaling is another celeb who isn't afraid to let her imperfect skin shine. The 37-year-old actress and author proves to be just one of the girls once more in an Instagram pic captioned, "That zit cream in your 30's life. At least I'm not going on the Tonight Show later today."
And then there's 45-year-old Bethenny Frankel, whose prominent pimple pic proves that acne isn't just an adolescent's problem.
Ashley Benson confirmed being candid about acne was cool in this Instagram picture captioned, "It's the new trend." And the Pretty Little Liars actress is right, why should we be afraid of our imperfect skin? It's what stands between us and the world, after all!
With so many flawless faces around, it's refreshing and empowering to see stars document their unwanted zits, blemishes and imperfections on social media.
So keep posting, ladies!
