Singer Lorde has acne

I have dealt with mildly severe acne all of my teenage life. It can be very lonely. I just watched this interview on YouTube of Lorde. If you look at her cheek you can see some very prominent acne. 

I suddenly have so much respect for her. I know what it's like to have acne like she does. I find it very comforting for some reason to see that she has acne.

There are some internet comments of people criticizing her skin. I think that's a very low blow. People with acne have low self esteem as it is. 

Thank you, Lorde. For proving to me that acne doesn't have to keep me from following my dreams. And that I shouldn't be ashamed of it.


  1. really good post. I suffer from on and off acne and i know firsthand how damaging it can be to how you perceive yourself. People don't think acne is a problem, but it is, especially because it is so visual. Thank you for devoting a post to this, and for telling us that acne doesn't mean we have to believe that life ends.
