Scarlett Johansson dishes on her struggle with acne as a young actress

Scarlett Johansson has recently reflected on her acne struggles as a young actress.

Speaking with PEOPLE, the Black Widow actress revealed how used to feel “conscious” at Hollywood events during her twenties because of her “painful breakouts” on face.

“I still look back at photos of me on the red carpet in my twenties, and I'm like, ‘I remember that pimple,’” she told outlet.

The Lucy star went on to explain how she had to wear “a lot of make-up while filming a movie” due to acne issue.

“It was terrible. I would cover my acne before I even got in the make-up 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,” asserted the actress.

The Avengers actress shared that she started following a three-step programme (cleansing, toning and moisturising), which she noted, “worked best for her sensitive skin type”.

Scarlett added that she now uses the same formulas from her skincare line, The Outset that has helped her with acne problem.

“The transparency of what’s in the line and what it’s doing sets it apart from other skin-care products,” she remarked.
