Bella Thorne wants her fans to see her at her most vulnerable.

Bella Thorne is still self-conscious about her formerly blemished skin.

The flame-haired star now boasts a clear complexion, but having flawless skin hasn't always been the case for the 18-year-old. Bella has never shied away from talking about her past skin problems, and has once again opened up about them to America’s InStyle magazine.

“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,” she admitted. “It's unbelievable how people looked at me differently because I had pimples. I'm still self-conscious about it."

Her friends helped her get through her skin anxiety though, and Bella found laughter was the best medicine when it came to coping with her acne woes.

“Friends have told me I'm a good person to have around when they are going through a tough time because I find a way to make them laugh, which is the biggest compliment,” she smiled. “You have to take a deep breath, realise that whatever is stressing you out is not the end of the world, and trust that you'll move on."

When it comes to her fans, former Shake It Up star Bella says they've been there through thick and thin and are forgiving whenever she makes mistakes. However, she also wants her followers to know that there’s more to her than what they see in the media.

“When they see me on camera, they see this nice hair and make-up and a pretty dress. I wish they saw the part of me when I’m at most vulnerable,” she said, adding that going through acne and dermatitis is when she was at her most low.
