Bella has learned to embrace her imperfections
Bella Thorne has confessed her struggle with acne and hopes that talking about it will help other sufferers along the way. The star is also partnering with skincare brand Bioré to promote their products.
She shared with People magazine: “I’ve struggled with my acne a lot, I always post it on my Snapchat. But I’m excited about this partnership. I hope I help somebody out there because I’m spreading the word.”
The news comes shortly after Bella published a picture without make-up blatantly showing her acne-prone skin. She used this opportunity to remind herself and others that it’s normal to suffer from the skin condition.
She wrote at the time: “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!
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 F**K 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”
Prior to being more accepting, Bella had admitted she often cried due to the condition.
She revealed: “I went through this terrible acne phase and I cried every night for two months straight.
It sounds really stupid to be like ‘Oh, you know, I cared about what my face looked like,’ but you know when you’re a girl and people genuinely don’t accept you because you have a problem like acne, which everyone gets. It’s actually unbelievable the amount of people that would look at me differently just because I had acne.”
