Kathryn Hahn struggled with cystic acne from her teens until her 40s.

The WandaVision star recently opened up on her beauty woes and went make-up free for People magazine’s annual Beautiful Issue, and confessed that she’s not always had the confidence to bare her skin.

Kathryn explained that her battle with ongoing cystic acne “all over my face” began when she was in college, and lasted for decades.

“I wore a ton of make-up until I got my acne under control. (After) having kids I went on a regimen that cleared it up,” she said, adding that once it cleared up, she finally felt confident enough to bare her skin.

“My self-esteem, face-wise, really took a leap up. Acne really does something to your self-esteem, especially when you’re on camera. Once that started clearing up, I definitely felt more comfortable not wearing make-up,” the 47-year-old added.

Now, she has a strict beauty regime, and said she’s investing more in her skin as she gets older.

“I stay out of the sun. I have a big skincare routine every morning. I wash my face. I have a toner. I have a bunch of serums. I love a face oil. The older I get, I’ve been definitely investing in skincare,” Kathryn shared, noting that she also wears no make-up on and off set.

“I rarely wear make-up in my real life. A lot of the roles that I have done recently, I wear little-to-no make-up. Oddly, I wore more make-up when I was in my 20s. I feel like I’m wearing less and less the older I get,” she explained.
