Whitney Port has lashed out against critics who claim she has the presence of a corpse without makeup.

(Cover) - EN Star Style - Whitney Port has slammed those who insult her for looking “dead or anaemic” without makeup.

The 30-year-old became famous after starring on reality TV show The Hills and she is now the lead fashion designer behind her line Whitney Eve.

Although her life is glamorous, the star often shares pictures via social media of herself sans makeup or any other accoutrements, and she is dismayed by how some people react to her bare face.

“Hi guys. So I don't want to come off as preachy AT ALL! But lately, when I post a pic of myself without makeup on @instagram, people hate- telling me I look dead or anemic or whatever! Over it! (sic)” she wrote in a post on Instagram attached to a selfie image. “I struggled with my skin A LOT growing up. I had terrible acne throughout high school and college and finally got it under control in my mid 20's. I've learned that keeping it healthy and clear is mostly due to keeping it clean.”

Whitney went on to explain it is essential for her to remove makeup from deep in her pores.

The star is unwilling to break out for vanity.

“I TRULY think the key to inner and outer beauty isn't about all the things we can buy to cover up our skin but how we can embrace our skin and keep it healthy. Clean skin is in,” she noted. “The more I keep it clean, the better condition it's in. And when you do decide to put a little makeup on ( I mean, we all do ) our skin is a pure foundation for it to live on! So goodbye haters! I'm gonna embrace my bare, colorless, pale and ghostly skin because I don't need to hide behind anything. I urge all you out there to not be afraid of showing that beautiful, bare face of yours to the world. Join me and tag all your clean skin selfies using the hashtag #OurCleanSkinIsIn Let's do this!!!”
