Brittany Snow is a beautiful actress, presently starring in Pitch Perfect 2 on the big screen. On Wednesday night she'll join Erin Andrews in hosting the 2015 CMT Awards. One look at Brittany Snow, and most assume she's always had it easy when it comes to her beauty treatments. After all, her beauty is natural.

In a recent People magazine report, the actress shares a couple of beauty issues she's dealt with over the years--including one very bad wax job.

Can you say 'Ouch?'

“I once went to a lady for the first time who was going to wax my eyebrows, and she told me I needed to wax my entire face,” Brittany Snow explains. “I have very, very sensitive skin, and my face did not like being waxed, so I broke out and then had to go to Vegas to promote Hairspray. In pictures I look like I’m terribly sunburned, but really it was a reaction to the wax. Never again.”

Brittany Snow went on to explain that the good looks fans see on the big screen and at events like tomorrow night's CMT Awards weren't always so easily achieved.

“Growing up in Florida and having naturally curly hair was a bit tough,” she says. “I had to learn to do treatments and masks to keep the frizz under control. Now, I love Kerastase and Moroccanoil products.”

One of her current beauty treatments has a twofold purpose--one of which the actress is very proud of being involved with--Biore Pore Strips.

“They were always something I used as a teenager,” Brittany Snow shares. “[Biore] asked me to be [its] spokesperson, and I was excited since they also teamed up with my charity, Love Is Louder, to bring awareness of mental health and positivity.”

It sounds like beauty goes way beyond skin deep for Brittany Snow.

Are you among those surprised that she hasn't always easily achieved her present good looks?

Is there an important takeaway from hearing about Brittany Snow's bad wax job?
