On social media, persons are quick to be critical, and Selena Gomez was scrutinized by her fans after posting a TikTok wherein she shared her makeup and skincare routine. Within the video, the 30-year-old had a slight tremor while applying micellar water to a sponge, resulting in many comments about her physicality.
Gomez responded to the questions on her “shaking hands” by reminding the audience that she was diagnosed with lupus years ago, and the shakiness is the side effect of medication for her condition.

“Lol I shake due to my medication for lupus,” she wrote within the comments of one other TikTok that drew attention to the phenomenon. “Also read my disclaimer. I ain’t no pro [laughing face emoji].”
That critical TikTok has since been deleted.
The Only Murder In The Constructing star was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease in 2014, and has been very open about her condition, which may cause inflammation throughout the body, including within the organs. In 2017, Gomez had a kidney transplant resulting from lupus, and recently discussed the results of her physical and mental health on her life in her 2022 documentary, Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me.
“I have never felt it since I used to be younger,” she said. “Within the morning once I get up, I immediately start crying since it just hurts, like, all the things.”
Along with lupus, Gomez talks openly about her bipolar disorder, and the way receiving a diagnosis has helped her enormously.
“I’ll be very open with everybody about this: I have been to 4 treatment centers,” Gomez told Rolling Stone last 12 months. “I feel once I began hitting my early twenties is when it began to get really dark, once I began to feel like I used to be not in charge of what I used to be feeling, whether that was really great or really bad.”
With the suitable care, the musical artist discovered the treatment that helped her to administer her condition, and decided to share her journey within the hope it could help other people going through the identical thing.
