Her fans always hoped she'd find her way back and the snap looks like a solid indication that Lindsay is on her way.
The star's skin is golden, her sweet freckles there for all the world to see. Her usually heavily-made up features are bare and that incredibly impish grin is back too.
Lindsay, now 32, shared the sunny shot from the deck of a boat which was basked in sunshine. In recent days she has also posted pics of herself recording music in a sound studio so she is clearly back to work and feeling good about it too.
While she is best-known for her acting and her controversial personal life, Lindsay is a successful recording artist also. We'll have to stay tuned to see what comes next, but whatever it is, we're happy to see that Lindsay is looking so healthy, fresh and happy.
