Bella Thorne opens up about dealing with acne
Bella Thorne has opened up about her struggle with acne, posting a frank picture of what her skin looks like without the influence of concealer and/or the airbrush filter.
Proving that flawless skin is beyond the reach of all us mortal beings, Bella explained her decision to share a selfie featuring a little bit of acne: "real skin alert 🚨 it's no secret I struggle w acne. Sometimes it's clear and sometimes it's just not.
"I'm very self conscious and constantly feeling bad about myself. BUT I shouldn't feel bad. It is normal to have acne. EVERY1 does!
Adding that she's done with the pressure of trying to cover-up her breakouts, Bella continued: "It's only our society and social media outlets like this one that tells us we have to have "perfect skin" to be considered socially acceptable.
"I'm here to tell you rn FUCK THAT. I'm going to show my skin for what is it and own it. No matter what any1 says. #ownit #beyou#acne #purebeauty #nofilter #lol"
This isn't the first time Bella has spoken up about her struggle with her skin. She previously told Cosmopolitan: "To be honest, when you have bad acne, nobody knows how it feels — until they have experienced it.
"I always understood what it was, but then I had it, and I mean, you want to cry when you look in the mirror. Like, actually cry. If you haven't had acne then you don't know, but it's this terrible, terrible feeling. It's humiliating."
Well, in a world where blemishes can be glossed over with a Snapchat filter, it's pretty cool to see Bella using her platform to show that nobodies skin looks that flawless in real life.
