    Personal Best: Q&A With Bella Thorne

    By Kara Mayer Robinson
    WebMD Magazine - Feature

    Teen actress Bella Thorne, 16, doesn't have much free time these days. After a 3-year gig playing aspiring dancer CeCe Jones on the Disney Channel's smash hit Shake it Up, she's been busy jetting to far-flung destinations like South Africa to shoot big-screen movies. She plays Adam Sandler's daughter in the comedy Blended, which premieres this month, and stars opposite Kyra Sedgwick in Big Sky, which recently wrapped production. Thorne has also branched out into music -- with her first solo single "TTYLXOX" -- and publishing, recently signing a three-book deal with Random House. When she finds a few hours for herself, she spends them hanging with her pals, her cats, and Netflix.

    "I have this little bag from Topshop that I carry in my purse. It's filled with random stuff: a small deodorant, body spray, and Aquaphor. I love Aquaphor. No one uses it, but it really heals any kind of dryness."

    Skin Flix

    "I use a Clarisonic every day and night. It really does wonders for my skin. I use a regular cleanser for my face, but nothing too heavy. I think if you get too heavy, sometimes your pores get blocked up."

    Insider Trading

    "I've been watching someone do my makeup every day for as long as I've been working. Everyone has tricks. One I learned on Blended is taking a little sponge, holding your lashes against it, and putting mascara on against it so it doesn't get on the top of your lid."

    No-Fry Hair Dry

    "My hair is the thing I take care of most. I don't like to put any heat on it when I don't have to because that really burns your hair. At work, I always make sure the stylists use Iron Guard protection spray. Anytime I have someone new, I'm like, 'Let me check your products!'"

    Gym Investment

    "I don't like doing the cross-trainer but I do it anyway. There are things in life you really hate but you have to force yourself to do because they make feel better. You hate it for a reason, because it's hard. But you should always overcome the hard things."
