It’s easy to assume Chrissy Teigen has it all. As the most hilarious—and always honest (and never afraid of being blocked by the president)—woman on the internet, Teigen is happy to share her enviable, vacationing-in-Bali life with her fans. But she also never shies away from a keeping-it-real moment.

In her most relatable moment of the month, Teigen took to Snapchat to prove that while her skin may look dewy and dreamy on TV and in her Instagrams, that’s not always the case. Turns out, in addition to having a cute kid, a devoted husband, a killer career, and a whip-smart sense of humor, Teigen also has the occasional bout of hormone-induced acne.

“Look at it. So angry. Ow.”

“Here’s my skin on my period,” the Lip Sync Battle co-host shared yesterday in a 10-second Snapchat clip. “Look at it. So angry. Ow.” As a messy-topknotted Teigen pans the camera, you can see her red, inflamed, blemished chin, cheeks, and nose. And chances are, you’ve been there, too.

Hormonal acne is usually the result of an endocrine imbalance. Most women tend to experience these effects around mid-cycle, when they ovulate, or right before their periods.

While you definitely shouldn’t pop, pick, or torment your blemishes, feel free to share them with your Insta followers.

If you, too, are adult-acne-prone, consider adding collagen to your beauty routine, and memorize this guide for getting rid of spots, zits, and pimples once and for all
