Georgia Toffolo has revealed that she ‘lived in fear’ of people finding out how severe her acne was at the height of her breakouts when she was younger.

The former Made In Chelsea favourite, 28, told in her ITV documentary In Search Of Perfect Skin how she had a ‘horrendously low opinion of herself’ at the time. 

The reality TV star added that she would get up super early every morning to have enough time to cover herself in layers of makeup.

She said on the show: ‘I had such a horrendously low opinion of myself. It was like hatred, anger, why, why do you have this?

‘Going back to that time I actually feel quite upset because it is something that I don’t really talk about now.’

‘I always assumed the acne would go as I got older. It didn’t and things became even harder when I found fame on a reality TV show.

‘I was living in such fear of someone finding out how severe it was. I was getting up three hours early – layers, powder, more concealer, constantly faking the confidence that I didn’t have inside.’

It comes after back in November Georgia opened up about her ‘all-consuming’ acne battle which began as a teenager during an appearance on Lorraine.

The star admitted she has gone to ‘great lengths’ to hide her skin and detailed the effects it has had on her confidence.

Detailing the impact the issue has caused, Georgia said: ‘I don’t think I would have had the confidence to do my career because of my acne before.’ 

Discussing the topic on the morning show, Georgia – also known as Toff – said: ‘Acne starts when you’re really young, in your formative years. Mine started when I was 13, I’ve been open about it and gone to great lengths to hide it.’

Georgia explained how she would wear layers of make-up to cover her spotty and scarred skin, admitting: ‘I hid behind it for so long’.

Lorraine told Georgia she had no idea she had struggles with acne, and Georgia said: ‘It’s wonderful to hear you nothing of me and acne together. When you suffer with something like this your acne is all-consuming.’

Georgia also referenced the psychological effects of the drugs which are prescribed to treat acne.

She said: ‘What the documentary shows is when the drugs are prescribed, they’re really harsh and there are some psychological affects’ [when you take medication for acne].

She also spoke to a mother whose teen killed herself when on the medication, and said: ‘It makes me really emotional now talking about it.’

Georgia has shared snippets from the documentary on her Instagram page

Alongside a clip from the show on the day it launched, Georgia, said: ‘Let’s bare some skin, it’s time to stop hiding and be honest with what we’re going through.

‘Can’t wait for you to see what I’ve been working on for so long!’
