Taking to Instagram, Port wrote a lengthy caption about the nasty comments she receives whenever she posts pictures sans makeup, with people often telling her she looks "dead or anemic."
She continued to share how she's struggled with her skin over the years, including suffering from "terrible acne." But Port now feels the solution to keeping her skin "healthy and clear is mostly due to keeping it clean."
Hi guys. So I don't want to come off as preachy AT ALL! But lately, when I post a pic of myself without makeup on @instagram, people hate- telling me I look dead or anemic or whatever! Over it! I struggled with my skin A LOT growing up. I had terrible acne throughout high school and college and finally got it under control in my mid 20's. I've learned that keeping it healthy and clear is mostly due to keeping it clean. 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. 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. Join me and tag all your clean skin selfies using the hashtag #OurCleanSkinIsIn Let's do this!!!

User marissalynnnm applauded Port for being inspirational, writing, "Love it, I'm on the journey to clean clear skin too. When that day comes, I can't wait to go out fresh faced! This is inspirational."
And there are many other commenters who feel the same way, with comments on the image including, "You are gorgeous Whitney and a great role model for all the girls out there," and "I think you look fab! You inspired me to go out without makeup@tomorrow and I am with you on keeping my skin clean. I use great products twice a day and it really helps. Love you!!!"
Another Instagram user wrote, "I feel you With! [sic] I have very pale skin as well and no colour [sic] on my cheecks. [sic] People ask me if I'm sick or tell me to lie in the sun but I'm over it. I love your skin colour [sic] and mine as well!"
"Whitney, you have gorgeous clear skin, so who cares what the haters say," user melbell_au wrote. And we couldn't agree more. It's wonderful to see a woman embrace her natural beauty, despite the nasty comments that she may have received in the past.
