Sam Faiers is no stranger to the world of big hair and fabulous make-up, but when the cameras are off, it seems the ex-TOWIE star loves to go bare-faced on the beach just like the rest of us!

Sam posted this sunny, no make-up selfie on Instagram on Wednesday (9 April) and while some of her followers were less than complimentary, we thought she looked as gorgeous as ever...

The former The Only Way is Essex lady is usually photographed with perfectly coiffed locks and lashes-a-plenty, so we thought it was rather refreshing to see Sam with scraped-back hair and fresh-faced, freckled skin.

And while her lack of false eyelashes and mascara might not scream 'glamour-puss,' who can be bothered to look super-glam when all they're doing is sunbathing on the beach during a relaxed, family holiday?

We love the fact that Sam's eyebrows are still perfectly groomed and, we don't know about you, but we'd much rather keep cool and focus on protecting our skin from those damaging UV rays than worry about looking impeccably made-up.

And we're sure Sam will be doing the same as she's a pretty savvy girl when it comes to looking after her skin and health – especially after recently being diagnosed with Crohn's disease after falling sick in the Celebrity Big Brother house earlier this year.

Good on you Sam, happy holidays to you and the Faiers family!

ps: We're LOVING the pink and silver Peach Bums bikini (from £70) too. Who needs mascara when you've got swimwear like that?!
