Singer Madison Beer has struggled with insecurities stemming from acne for the "majority" of her life, but once she learned that her skin doesn't define her, she realized that confidence comes from within.
Nowadays, the star has been able to get her breakouts under control, but she wants other women to know that having a pimple — or two or three — isn't a flaw.
"Learning that it doesn’t define you is huge – that was a huge thing that I had to accept," she told Glamour of how she handles "bad" skin days. "It doesn’t make you any less beautiful. We’re human beings, and we can’t be so hard on ourselves for something human and natural."
The brunette babe noted that like her own experience with hormonal breakouts, acne isn't something most people can control, so there's no point in worrying over it.
"I feel like that’s just another flaw with society that hopefully is changing — women particularly are expected to be perfect all the time, but we have pimples, dark circles, wrinkles, cellulite, whatever," she explained. "It’s deemed like a negative thing, but I actually think that it makes you human. And these are beautiful things."
Her views are what prompted her to help launch Know Beauty, a line of skincare that curates personalized product collections for each buyer.
"I want people to understand this isn’t about forever — like, I still break out once in a while," she noted. "I feel like so many things are marketed as if you’re never going to break out ever again and it’s going to make you look perfect. But it’s like, 'No, you still might break out, but this is going to help keep it under control.'"
The social media star likes "to keep it simple," so she sticks to the brand's Clarifying Cleanser and Calming Day Moisturizer.
"You need to have a routine that you feel comfortable with," insisted Beer. "It comes from within you to feel sexy and feel confident, and I don’t think that things like a pimple on your face should like reduce that."
