But now it’s so cystic and cracked, and it won’t go away, ”he revealed in this video, in the middle of a facial treatment session provided by his wife Hailey Bieber. Before admitting to what point these buttons altered his self-confidence: “It really bothers me. I wear beanies more often, which probably aggravates the situation. But who loves acne?

Justin Bieber isn’t the only one to opt for these regressive accessories, which seem to be the new fad of stars suffering from acne.
