@selenagomez PSA I got most of these products free. I ain’t just rolling like that everywhere. Use any serum to take off make up before washing. It breaks it up nicely. Also use a sponge to wipe eyes to treat eyes delicately when removing make up.

Selena Gomez Addresses Concerns Over Shaky Hands
In the TikTok video, Selena is seen applying makeup remover and washing her face, but some viewers made fun of her for her shaky hands.
The 30-year-old took to social media to clarify that the shaking was a side effect of her medication for lupus. "Lol I shake because of my medication for lupus," she wrote. "Also read my disclaimer. I ain't no pro [laughing face emoji]." Despite her ongoing health battles, Selena refuses to be burdened by her lupus diagnosis.
She previously spoke about her kidney transplant on the Today Show in 2017, saying: "She [Raisa] lived with me in this interesting time where my kidneys were just done...The fact that she was a match, I mean, that’s unbelievable.
That’s not real”. “That was it. I didn’t want to ask a single person in my life. The thought of asking somebody to do that was really difficult for me.She volunteered and did it—and let alone somebody wanting to volunteer, it is incredibly difficult to find a match.
The fact that she was a match, I mean, that’s unbelievable. That’s not real”. Gomez also thanked Raisa again in March 2021, writing: "Thank you for blessing me. I am forever grateful to you,” In her 2022 documentary, 'Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me', the superstar further detailed her struggle with lupus.
"I haven't felt it since I was younger," a crying Selena said in the documentary about the joint pain she is feeling. "In the morning when I wake up, I immediately start crying because it just hurts, like, everything." "I found having a relationship with bipolar and myself, it's going to be there," Selena said.
"I'm just making it my friend now. I think I needed to go through that to be who I am and I am going to keep going through it, but I'm really happy. I'm at peace. I'm angry. I'm sad. I'm competent. I'm full of doubt. I'm a work in progress.
I am enough. I am Selena," said the pop queen. The singer has been open about her struggles with lupus and continues to be a strong advocate for autoimmune disease awareness. Despite her setbacks, she remains grateful and continues to inspire others with her unwavering spirit.
