Lily Allen Shares Her Acne Woes on Instagram
Stars, they're just like us.

The 30-year-old and mom of three showed just how displeased she was with her adult acne with her caption: "How is it fair I get acne at 30? #1stworldproblems."
The cheeky Brit singer isn't the only performer to come clean about the acne plaguing her. Last year Lorde tweeted photos from two different sources during the same concert — one showed her with a slew of blemishes, while the other had apparently been edited to make her skin flawless. The honest singer pointed out the differences, adding, "remember flaws are ok :-)."
And the response to both? Appreciation from fans who commented that it took guts to post such a picture, and that Allen made them feel better. Indeed, stars are human — and quite often blemished — too.
