Mum of two Sam, whose partner Paul Knightley recently vowed to marry, took to Instagram to open up about how she had been suffering in silence.
Sharing a close-up of her skin during a breakout, Sam explained: "I’ve been really nervous about posting this picture. The last few years I’ve been very quiet about the fact that I’ve been suffering with adult acne – in my case, it was hormonal."

The reality TV star continued that it began after her daughter was born in 2017: "After breastfeeding Rosie, my skin just broke out and I couldn’t get it under control.
"I tried absolutely everything. It felt like the more I was doing to stop it, the worse it became. I’ve been so embarrassed about it and have used filters on Instagram to try and hide it.
"I would always edit and smooth my skin in pictures and I definitely wouldn’t leave the house without makeup," Sam confessed.
Sam then shared what finally worked for her and got her skin under control, with the swipe to the results showing her skin much clearer.
"I initially started to use collagen skincare products for the anti-ageing qualities but soon noticed a dramatic reduction in breakouts along with my skin becoming firmer, lines reducing and my skin feeling more hydrated."
The proud star then revealed her big surprise, that she was launching her own skincare line called Revive Collagen.
