Scarlett revealed that when she would get stressed out while filming a movie because of her acne outbreaks.

‘It was terrible. I would cover my acne before I even got to the makeup chair just so that I didn’t feel so exposed. It really does affect how you feel about yourself and you just want to scrub it away.’

Adding that at the time, the star tried ‘every kind of acne peel and mask and resurfacing polish’ before she realized’ that those particular products were too harsh for her skin.

She ended up starting a routine of just cleansing, toning and moisturizing.
