From slaying on-stage to making clever music videos, Lizzo always looks, dare we say, good as hell. But when the 31-year-old history-making singer sat down with The New York Times to talk about her beauty journey, she revealed that once upon a time she had to go to “skin rehab.” Dun, dun, dun!
The problems started when the “Tempo” artist was on tour and generally exhausted. “So I was on the road, and I was sleeping in my makeup a bunch. It was so embarrassing. What am I, a child? And I was waking up and thinking I’m invincible, nothing can happen to me!” she recalled. Turns out that wasn’t the case.
She explained, “One day my face broke out—not even broke out in acne, but red and irritated. I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is what happens when you party all night and you don’t wash off your makeup.’” Guess the (skin deep) truth does hurt.
So off to her own version of “skin rehab” she went. “Listen, I was in face masks—the Peter Thomas Roth green tea face mask, literally every night. It was really scary,” she said. “I thought my skin would never come back.”
