When it comes to natural beauty, no one gets realer than Loose Women’s Stacey Solomon.

And just when we thought we couldn’t fall in love with her honesty anymore, the 28-year-old shared a raw and brave photo of her acne.

Taking to Instagram in support of her younger brother, she showed of spots on her cheek, as she jokingly told her 900k followers that she’d encountered “sympathy puberty”.


“I love my little brother so much that I appear to be experiencing sympathy puberty 😂😂 Or at least that’s what we’ve called it!” she wrote alongside the candid image.

“Had the best laugh with my lil bro tonight talking about all things hormone induced and I’m grateful to my spots for making that happen.
Love you Joshy! #SpotsAreSexy #QuarterLifePuberty 😂”

Fans instantly rushed to comment on the photo, as they praised the mum-of-two  for being “real” and dubbed her a “role model.”

“Spotty Stacey ! I love you !! You are so real lol 😂 I wish my daughter would get some of your confidence xxx” one said.

“Love it …… just like the rest of us xx” another added.

“Fab role model Stacey! 👏 love all your body confidence posts!! You’re sending such a great & important msg – embrace & love the skin you are in!” a third commented.

The positive post comes just days after Stacey laughed off criticism over her new curly locks.

As she channelled her “inner @nadiaandkaye and Baby” on Friday’s Loose Women, Stacey was met with some rather uncomplimentary comments as hair trolls compared her look to Medusa and even a packet of instant noodles.


But not one to take a back seat, Stacey shut down the haters, posting a picture to her Instagram with the caption: “For anyone who was offended by my curly hair (I noticed a few)… I’m not sorry… #nobodyputsbabyinthecorner”

You tell em, girl!
