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. I know lots of my friends also struggle with acne and it's something you can't control."
