If you asked us yesterday if we wanted to go back to high school, it would have been a resounding "heck no." But after talking to Bella Thorne, we're reconsidering. You probably recognize the chic 16-year-old from her recent movie roles (like Blended with Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler) and lead part on Disney's Shake It Up. She's also been popping up in the front row of Fashion Week. Her favorite designers? Kenzo, Fausto Puglisi, and Valentino. "I love Valentino's heels," she said. "They're so cute with their studs, yet they're so elegant, girlie, and feminine." (Damn, she's got way more style than we did as teens. Juicy Couture tracksuit anyone?)
The Neutrogena ambassador reminds us of everything that's great about being a teen. For Bella, there are no limits when it comes to beauty. She's got some of the best braids in Hollywood, and she's trying hair trends straight off the runway. She's mastered the art of the selfie and has almost 3 million Instagram followers to show for it. Plus, she's often spotted on the red carpet with inventive manicure designs that we could never pull off (a nail piercing . . . uh, no). But unlike most teens, Bella has already learned the secret to antiaging — sunscreen. "I just went to Mexico, and I wasn't sunburned because of the Neutrogena Clear Face Liquid Lotion Sunscreen SPF 55 ($8)," she said. "It has SPF in it, and honestly it's the best because it's oil free and it's water resistant."
