"I've learned that keeping it healthy and clear is mostly due to keeping it clean," Port said about her skin. "I TRULY think the key to inner and outer beauty isn't about all the things we can buy to cover up our skin, but how we can embrace our skin and keep it healthy. Clean skin is in."

"The more I keep it clean, the better condition it's in," she said. "And when you do decide to put a little makeup on ( I mean, we all do 😊 ) our skin is a pure foundation for it to live on! So goodbye haters! I'm gonna embrace my bare, colorless, pale, and ghostly skin because I don't need to hide behind anything. I urge all you out there to not be afraid of showing that beautiful, bare face of yours to the world."
