Bella Thorne has opened up about how difficult it was growing up with skin problems; revealing that she suffered with low-esteem as a young teenager as a result of being so worried about her spots.

Telling InStyle that she was so upset about her skin she'd often cry at night,  Bella shared: "I cried every night for months. It sounds silly to say that I cared so much about my face, but when you're a young girl, it takes a toll on your self-esteem."

Adding that she still has the same hang-ups about her skin, Bella continued: "It's unbelievable how people looked at me differently because I had pimples. I'm still self-conscious about it."

As for her advice for anyone else struggling with the same issues, she said: "You have to take a deep breath, realize that whatever is stressing you out is not the end of the world, and trust that you'll move on."

This latest revelation follows Bella's recent #mynaturalbeauty initiative that encouraged young girls to post make-up free selfies in a celebration of their natural, unedited selves. 

Speaking about her motivation behind the project, Bells shared: "I used to cry every night because I thought I looked so ugly. I used to read comments about my face, my skin, my nose, my eyes, and even my beauty marks people didn't approve of.know lots of my friends also struggle with acne and it's something you can't control."

Well said.
