But now, Adele has opted to share some fresh-faced snaps to help others going through the same thing.“I’ve always been embarrassed about my skin,” Adele began.“I’ve struggled with it for most of my life.

I’ll never forget when it first started to break out and a lady asked me if I’d been in an accident.“I was mortified… I think I’ve carried that shame with me for too long.“Everything I’m going through at the moment has taught me it’s good to share.

I’m not the only one.“I’m very lucky to be on this treatment but it’s ravaged my skin a lot,” she continued bravely.“I’ve shared what it’s done to my hands and feet but I was too ashamed to show you my face.“I’ve been thinking a lot recently and I’ve realised that it’s good to share as much as I can.“What if someone else is suffering too and they think they’re alone?
