Summer House's Lindsay Hubbard Opens Up About Her 12-Year Acne Struggle
"It has been such a long journey — and one that I’m still on — to try and maintain clear skin."
Lindsay Hubbard wants to break down some of the taboos around beauty. The newly platinum blonde Summer House stunner recently spoke out about her breast augmentation, in hopes that she can help remove any of the perceived stigma around the procedure. Now, like Lorde and Bekah Martinez, Lindsay is opening up about her years-long struggles with adult acne.
"I feel so flattered that people even think I have decent skin because it has been such a long journey — and one that I’m still on — to try and maintain clear skin," Lindsay wrote on Instagram, revealing that she went on Accutane in college to combat breakouts, and it's still something she's dealing with today.
"I have been on/off various acne medications and topical creams for the past 12 years," Lindsay wrote. "NOW, I feel like I’m constantly battling acne scars (from college), redness/uneven complexion, Melasma, sun spots, and STILL breakouts.. like how embarrassing that I still have adult acne!!"
But this year, she's found a routine that works for her, including a daily four-part Rodan + Fields Reverse skincare system and using full-coverage foundations when necessary, including Too Faced's Born This Way, Makeup Forever's Mat Velvet, and Sephora's Airbrush Foundation. She also relies on a laser treatment to help with scarring:
"The lifesaver for me over the past six months has been doing Clear + Brilliant laser treatments at @laseraway," she says. "Although there is a setting where C+B can help more with skin coloration, I use the texture setting to help get rid of the years of acne scarring I’ve racked up, rejuvenate collagen, and it helps reduce the size of pores by 20%. It basically gives you a fresh layer of skin."
Lindsay's not the only celeb to sing the praises of Clear + Brilliant: Courteney Cox has talked it up in the past, and Cynthia Bailey always makes time for the treatment when she's in LA (and we know how luminous her skin is).
