    "It's the worst for your self-confidence."

    Hello, it's me. A fellow pimple popper here.

    As someone who has adult acne, which is acne that occurs after age 25, I am all too familiar with waking up to a new zit that has invaded my face.

    *An accurate description of my reaction when it happens.

    Which is why I have to admit that I found Justin Bieber's latest Facebook Watch episode, where he talks about his own struggle with adult acne, surprisingly refreshing.

    ICYMI: Justin Bieber and his wife, Hailey, now have their own Facebook Watch series called The Biebers on Watch where they let us in on their life and marriage.

    In the video, Hailey gave Justin a facial while the couple talked about their skincare routines, and the whole thing was oddly satisfying, y'all.

    The most relatable part of the video was when Justin opened up about his own acne, and said that even though he tries to take care of his skin, nothing really works.

    "I think at some point it's preference and opinion, not factual," he said. "Because some things work on certain skin, and some skin reacts bad to certain products and some skin reacts nice to certain products."

    "I would break out when I got super stressed but it would never stay, but now it's like so cystic and it's bubbly and won't go away," he continued. "It definitely bugs me. I wear a hat a lot more, which probably makes it a lot worse," the singer added.

    "I feel like every time I get pimples, [it's] at the worst time. Like, I'll have to do a Grammys performance or like, go on Ellen. I won't have a big pimple for a long time and then I'll get a huge one on my nose [or chin]."

    "I feel like, again, it goes back to stress levels. Those are probably big deals for me. Probably like something that was really important to me so I was probably over-stressing about it," he said.

    "It's the worst for your self-confidence because...especially because all these filters on Instagram. People are like looking perfect with their skin and you feel like that’s a reality," he admitted.

    "In reality, a lot of people struggle with their skin. You’re not alone. And we [are] in this together," Justin declared.

    Me, listening to the Biebs talk about something I've struggled with as a teen and adult, and throw shade at people who look "perfect" on Instagram:
