Taylor Hill has been open about acne, telling Allure in 2017 that she's had to deal with getting makeup-induced breakouts under control. But as anyone who has struggled with acne knows, even if something successfully clears up your skin, it may not stay that way — and you may not always be able to cover it up. We're so used to seeing the Victoria's Secret Angel in full-glam makeup, it's easy to forget that she, like so many of us, get zits. Hill was happy to remind us of that on Instagram, though, and she looked absolutely gorgeous doing so.
In a selfie posted on Saturday morning, Hill is seen drenched in sunlight that brightens her green eyes, lights up her long hair, and shines a literal spotlight on her makeup-free skin, revealing that she has several pimples in a cluster between her eyebrows. In the caption, Hill simply writes, "Buenos Dias 🌞." The breakout didn't go unnoticed by Hill's fans, but more importantly, it didn't go unappreciated.
"I love how you posted this even though you can see your acne. It makes me not feel so bad about mine," one commenter wrote. It was a sentiment echoed by many. "It’s so reassuring to see someone I consider beautiful have pimples and still look beautiful," another wrote, as someone else said, "I’m feeling better seeing your natural skin with all the imperfections that are so beatiful and real." Other shared that see Hill without makeup, filters, and photoshopping made them feel more confident about their own natural skin.
A few hours later, Hill posted another brightly-lit, makeup-free selfie, again not mentioning her skin, but calling attention to her unbrushed hair. "I’m a Pisces ♓️ but my hair thinks it’s a Leo ♌️ forever a mind of it’s own 🙈," she wrote in the caption of the equally-stunning Instagram photo.
Fans were still cheering on Hill's unedited skin in this second post, and one commenter in particular summed up the relatable and refreshing message everyone can take away from the photos: "Even models get acne too!!!! I love this, shine girl 😍."
