On Friday, Lili Reinhart, 23, showcased her fit physique while enjoying a beach day in Los Angeles.
The “Riverdale” actress looked confident posing for the camera in a floral-print swimsuit and black sunglasses. Reinhart shared the photo to her Instagram account with the caption: “My daughter @elsie took this.”
And while Cole Sprouse’s ex-girlfriend appeared self-assured in the snap, she recently revealed her past struggles with cystic acne.
“I used to let a breakout debilitate me,” she told Marie Claire in June.
“I wouldn’t leave the house because I was so ashamed and would wear a baseball cap to cover my face if I did have to go somewhere. I would even avoid mirrors. It used to be really awful because my attitude about my skin was awful,” she continued.
However, the 23-year-old has come to accept her skin.
“What helped me is accepting my acne, rather than hiding it…or trying to do a bunch of laser treatments or really expensive microneedling treatments,” Reinhart shared.
“No one cares about your acne except for you. Meaning that no one is negatively affected by your acne. You are the only one who feels self-conscious about it,” she said.
Now, Reinhart doesn’t rely on heavy makeup to hide her blemishes.
“Lately, I haven’t been wearing foundation at all, especially if I don’t leave the house, so concealer has been a staple for me,” Reinhart revealed about her quarantine skin routine.
“It’s interesting going from one extreme to another, like wearing makeup for 16 hours a day to wearing none at all. Once COVID happened, we had to stop production of Riverdale and I fled to LA.”
The actress admitted, “I definitely have not been wearing makeup on a daily basis and because of that, I’ve been having to remind myself to keep up with my skincare routine during quarantine.”
“I cleanse twice a day, moisturize, and all of those good things, but I have to remember to mask and exfoliate. I’m usually such a skin mask fanatic, doing them every two or three days.”
Before the quarantine, Reinhart was in a long-term relationship with her “Riverdale” co-star, Cole Sprouse.
The two were first linked in 2017 but kept their relationship under wraps. And while they were photographed several times throughout the years, they rarely discussed their romance.
In 2018, Reinhart opened up on why she keeps her personal life secret saying, “I think it’s just that I’m so protective over it. It’s not something the world needs to know about, because if you give them anything, they are just going to want more,” she told Who What Wear.
In February 2020 rumors started swirling the couple had split. In May, People reported the pair were “currently not together.”
