However, it seems the former Disney darling has since learned to embrace her pimples. In fact, Miz Thorne has even come to think of her acne as “beautiful.” Huh.
Still, the 18-year-old hasn’t always had such a cordial relationship with her zits as she’s previously tried the anti acne drug Accutane in the hopes of completely getting rid of her blemishes. The Duff actress explained:
“The [doctors] told me, ‘Nine out of 10 people never get one pimple again.’ So many things are bad for you, but when you have this thing on your face that feels like a monster├óΓé¼┬ª I was like, ‘OK, I’ll do it.'”
Unfortunately, the medicine didn’t work but the failed attempt at getting clear skin inspired her to try all-natural, toxin free products to combat against her pimples. At looking at her complexion in a different way, Bella shared:
“I got this pimple the other day and I said to my sister, ‘Look at this! I have a press day coming up!’ And she said, ‘That’s a beautiful pimple, Bella. That is beautiful. Scars are beautiful. We both struggle with acne, but now, every time we get something on our face, we just say to each other, ‘That’s beautiful. I love my scars. I love my skin.’ You have to change your mind-set.”
AH-Mazing. Bella’s journey has led her to partner with Burt’s Bees for their #LoveYourNature campaign — which makes sense as she revealed her mantra now is:
“Love your skin. Love it. Love your nature!”
Well said! Keep slaying the game, girl.
