The Bold and the Beautiful star Ashley Jones wants her fans to know that she doesn’t wake up looking like glamorous Bridget Forrester every morning. She recently shared two photos of herself on Instagram showing that changes in her skin can affect her self-esteem.
Ashley Jones: Keeping It Real
“No one’s seen the photo on the left before,” says Jones about the two photographs in the post below. “But why? It’s normal. And both photos have the same amount of self-worth. While my worth hasn’t changed, my confidence has. I took the one on the left at a low point (overwhelmed and embarrassed) going through adult hormonal acne during a time of high stress.
“I wish I had seen images to let me know this is okay, normal, and BEAUTIFUL,” the actress adds (with no pun intended). “And it’s also OKAY to want to treat it CAUSE IT HURTS. Badly. And there are ways to treat without oral medication. PROBIOTICS work and they are helping my skin the same way oral probiotics help my digestion. (Try @MotherDirt’s AO+Restorative Mist- it worked for me and is a huge reason for my after picture cause they balance and repair the microbiome.)
“When your microbiome is unbalanced, your skin isn’t happy and acts out with acne,” she explains. “It’s a vicious cycle. I go into more detail on my blog (and more 😳photos), but if you want a few extra tips read on. The photo on the right has good lighting (and you can see the concealer under my eyes!), but it’s not filtered.” You can read all her important tips in her Instagram post below.
Fans were thrilled to see Jones on-screen last week when Bridget arrived as a sight for sore eyes for Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang).
Bridget doesn’t show up much but we know we’d like to see her more and not just for when a family member needs her. The Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS. Check local listings for airtimes.
