Avril Lavigne is on the mend.

The "Complicated" singer, who has been battling Lyme disease, looked like the picture of health on Thursday while relaxing poolside in a bikini.  

"Mind body sun and water," she captioned the Instagram snap above.  

In the photo, the pop star wears a huge grin as she takes a dip in the pool while wearing an embellished bandeau top and a pair of dark sunnies.  

The relaxing break is well deserved, following Avril's first performance in over a year at the 2015 Special Olympics last weekend.  

Avril looked gorgeous in a sequined gown as she took the stage to perform her song "Fly." 

"We were all meant to fly...spread your wings across the universe....it's your time to, it's your time to shine!!!! There's a light inside of all of us soon you'll find that it's your time to fly #Fly #SpecialOlympicsLA2015," she captioned a stunning snap from the event. 

Lavigne gave an update on her health crisis recently to ABC News, where she revealed that she is almost out of the woods and things are looking up.  

"I'm about halfway through my treatment," the Canadian singer revealed. "I'm doing a lot better. Seeing a lot of progress. ... I'm just really grateful to know that, like, I will make [a] 100 percent recovery."
