Laverne Cox Posts Makeup-Free Selfie, Reminding Us To Give Our Skin A Break Sometimes

The Orange Is The New Black starlet loves to get all dolled up, as we have seen from her glamorous red carpet appearances, but now she proves she can just as easily strip down and go totally bare. Laverne Cox posted a makeup-free selfie and embraced her natural beauty, imperfections and all. She looks so fierce.

She captioned the Instagram photo, "Always good to have days with no makeup to let my skin breath. #washfacenobase #TransIsBeautiful." Many of us are so used to slathering product on our skin on a daily basis, that we often forget how important it is to give our skin a day off to reboot. Not only is it beneficial in terms of health, it also feels really good.

The actress shows off baby smooth skin in the picture, but also some subtly dark under-eye circles, proving that no one is perfect and that celebrities are in fact just like us under all that couture fashion and makeup! And you know what? Cox embraces her so-called "flaws" with a whole lot of confidence, giving us a look that says "this is me, and I am beautiful" — what a positive and inspiring message.

No woman should feel reluctant to go makeup-free and flaunt her real, natural beauty, and Cox reminds us of that.

Slay.
