Lorde doesn't need your acne-fighting tips, thanks
The Royals singer tells people to leave her to fight her acne alone in this Instagram video
Having bad skin is already difficult - you get a hundred acne fighting remedies and solutions from everyone you know. Being a celebrity, always in the spotlight makes the situation worse.
The truth is it can affect anybody - regardless of what dermatologists you have access to. Recently, Kendall Jenner was bashed for having a little breakout on her cheeks at the Golden Globes and she told trolls what they needed to hear, "Never let that s— stop you."
Now its singer Lorde's turn.
The Royals songstress went on Instagram to talk about her struggles with acne and how she really doesn't want any more remedies for her skin.
She said that she had struggled for "years and years and years" with having acne and how much it hurts.
"For the real though, acne sucks," she said.
In the video, she is using a pink LED light on her skin while she says, clearly annoyed, that dealing with people's advice is worse than dealing with the acne process itself. She also describes how she has tried drugs for it and just hates it when people tell her what she should do to get better looking skin.
She says, imitating one the many pieces of advice she receives, "You know what worked for me? Moisturizing! Make a mask out of honey, greek yogurt and avocado. All you need to do is buy an apricot scrub! Coconut oil – the secret is coconut oil!"
She revealed that the advice hurts too, especially when it accuses her of not being hygienic enough. However, her story wasn't all about complaining. She told her fans, and it is motivation for anyone dealing with skin problems, "For anyone out there who has bad skin — and actual bad skin, not the kind of bad skin you can just use a fancy cream for a few days and it will get better — I feel your pain. We’ll get there, we will. Promise."
