The Bachelorette’s Angie Kent reveals her ‘swollen and unfiltered’ face in a selfie – as fans praise her for ‘honestly’ highlighting her skin condition
She’s the former Bachelorette who has always been open about her skin struggles.
And on Tuesday, Angie Kent shared a photo to Instagram of her makeup-free visage while suffering from a skin pigmentation flare-up over the Christmas period.
The 30-year-old posted two pictures of herself: one showed her looking flawless before the holidays, and the other showed her looking ‘swollen and unfiltered’.

‘Pre Christmas Instagram game was strong… versus post-Christmas comedown reality,’ she wrote in the caption.
‘Swollen, unfiltered, absolute hormonal pigment flare up all over my face.
‘Extremely fragile knowing another Christmas has gone and I’ve got to sort my s**t out for 2021, and let go of a lot of pain and embrace the lessons.’
Pigmentation is a common skin condition which often occurs due to hormonal changes and fluctuations, and can be triggered by UV light from the sun.

While each person is different, dermatologists recommend a number of treatments including serums and oils to help with the condition.
Angie’s fans praised her for highlighting her flare-up so honestly, with one commenting: ‘You’re beautiful and real, Angie.
‘Keep on being you, the world needs more women who are honest and open.’

A third added: ‘We just love you for this post-Hormonal pigmentation is no fun and some of the most difficult pigment to treat. Take care x.’
Angie said she was ‘so grateful’ for the growth she’d experienced this year, most likely due to her high-profile split from Bachelorette winner Carlin Sterritt.
She wrote: ‘It’s okay to not be okay. Nothing lasts forever, good or bad. So soak it all up, grow through what ya go through and embrace the shift!
‘Merry Christmas! Here’s to an amazing New Year’s Eve and 2021!’

Angie has been honest about her battles with bad skin in the past.
She undergoes facial treatments to help with acne scarring, in addition to getting Botox injections to prevent fine lines.
Angie told The Daily Telegraph last year: ‘I am not going to lie, I have dabbled in Botox.
‘I love me some Botox and I have suffered with acne scars so I am all about getting skin treatments, but don’t expect me to get a boob job. I am quite happy with my little breasts.’
