Dannii Minogue has opened up about the 'terrible' skin condition she is constantly battling, after having recently celebrated her 50th birthday.

The Aussie pop star, who featured as a judge on The Masked Singer, also spoke about the "boring" regime behind her youthful skin.

Speaking to The Sun on Sunday's Fabulous magazine, Dannii disclosed how she maintains her glowing complexion – and treats a common skin condition at the same time – after she gave up Botox, along with sister Kylie, in 2010.

"It’s obviously down to the boring things that we know are good for you – sleep, exercise, drinking water.

"I try to look after myself with regular facials. I haven’t gone much over the years, but recently I’ve definitely had to ramp that up."

Dannii, who has a 10-year-old son Ethan with ex-boyfriend Kris Smith, also shared her struggle with rosacea.

"I try to look after myself with regular facials. I haven’t gone much over the years, but recently I’ve definitely had to ramp that up. I have terrible rosacea so I have laser treatment for it."

Rosacea typically only occurs on the face and is most common in people between the ages of 30 and 50. The condition causes facial flushing and redness as well as sensitive skin and sore eyelids. Though anyone can get rosacea, it seems to be more common in women.

She added that her youthful looks are also genetic, with dad Ronald and grandmother Millie, who turns 102 later this year, also sporting great skin.

In the same interview, the mother-of-one insisted "growing old is a privilege", which is something she "realised" when her sister Kylie Minogue, 53, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005.

"If I’m around people now who are upset about getting older it just takes my breath away – like, seriously? There’s a real appreciation of life and you’ve got to celebrate it," she said.

Earlier this year, the star told the Mail on Sunday that she had been looking forward to reaching the half a century milestone due to her famous sibling's heartbreaking experience.

"I’m always ageing myself up – I might be 49, but in my head I’m already mentally turning 50. I was always like this. I could never wait for the next birthday."

The former The X Factor judge added: "Each year when I have a birthday I think about when my sister was very sick, and going through cancer. The doctors said we don’t know if she’s going to get through this. She’s going to have all the treatments day by day, but...

"So if anyone says, 'Ugh, I’m getting old,' I tell them, 'Yeah – the lucky ones do. And it’s awesome and you’ve got to enjoy it.'"

Kylie underwent a lumpectomy and chemotherapy, before being declared cancer-free in 2006.
