Whether it was in our teens or as adults, most of us have struggled with acne. Yet there’s still a huge stigma surrounding pimples, blemishes and “bad skin.” More than 50 million people in the U.S. struggle with acne every year according to the American Academy of Dermatology, so there’s really no reason to be ashamed of your skin, because odds are the person next to, behind and in front of you probably all have acne too.

And though it might be easy to assume celebrities are born with picture-perfect skin, they have acne too. Underneath heavenlike lighting, heavy makeup and drastic retouching, celebrities such as Kendall Jenner, Miley Cyrus and Rihanna deal with annoying blemishes and pimples like you and I do. They also know that the more they talk about it, the more the stigma surrounding acne is shut down. To help you feel comfortable with your own acne, we’ve collected stories from 11 celebrities on how they learned to embrace their skin. Read the inspiring accounts ahead.
