To anyone out there who feels embarrassed or ashamed by breakouts… I feel you,” she said.
The former Disney star and music comeback, always have been honest and vulnerable, recently put no-makeup affirms on Instagram. “My chin gets it the worst because I hold my microphone as close to me as I possibly can because some of my music has softer tones to it,” she told Allure. “So the chin is always the first area that I treat. I usually put a mask on and a humidifier on my face after my show.”
