Fair play.

The 22-year-old posted a no-makeup selfie of her current reality, a "pimply, bleeding, sore face" and explained how she struggles with her skin.

Her detailed post explains how her problem skin gets her down at times but it does NOT define her and she wants others to stop letting "imperfections kill their confidence".

Haven't done a post like this in a while, so here goes. THIS is my current situation. A pimply, bleeding, sore face. It doesn't look THAT bad, but it feels prettttty bad. My skin will always be a journey in itself, I don't think I will ever be one of those girls who feels completely okay without makeup, but that's fine. Even when my skin is at it's best, which does happen sometimes, when I don't have any big angry pimples and everything looks quite smooth, I'm still a little self conscious... I feel like I can't wear singlets or backless tops because my skin on my back is still quite bad, which kind of upsets me. But just because I'm not completely confident with my skin, doesn't mean I'm not a confident person. I've come a long way from the girl who used to cry every single night about the way her skin looked. These days my skin is just a minor downer for me sometimes. This post is just to show you all that you should be confident despite your little flaws. We all have things that kill our confidence a little sometimes, no one is completely perfect, and something that might seem like the end of the world for you, may go unnoticed by everyone else. Happy people are the most beautiful people, and i know it's hard to feel happy when you're focusing on your imperfections- but I just want to let you all know that you are beautiful EVEN if you have acne, or bacne, or cellulite, or your thighs touch or you've got stretch marks. You beautiful and unique and amazing as you are, and being confident and happy and that will shine through and make you even more beautiful! THESE ?? are my imperfections, they make me sad sometimes but they're not who I am, and they aren't going to kill my confidence, so don't let your imperfections kill your confidence! ✨
