"I've been slowly eating my way back to health since then and I am now feeling ok," Crystal told her followers.

The Playboy Playmate went on to reveal that she opted for the natural look after removing her implants four years ago and says she should have learnt her lesson.

"I advocate for being natural since I got very ill and removed my implants and everything else toxic in my body in 2016.

"I should have learned my lesson the first time but I guess the universe keeps sending you the same lesson until you learn it.

Crystal, who was left her husband's mansion and a huge sum of money, explained that movies, social media and advertisements make women feel terrible about themselves and said that women are overly sexualized.

"For ten years my value was based on how good my physical body looked. I was rewarded and made a living based on my outer appearance.

"To this day I need to write reminders of why I'm worthy that have nothing to with my physical appearance to convince myself that I'm enough.

She continued: "I feel sorry for the next generation looking up to people whose looks aren't even attainable without lots of filters, makeup, or money and women need to stop feeding into it.

"This is a huge slap on my own wrist for caving into this pressure, even now in my 30's – as I thought I would have learned my lesson by now," Crystal concluded.

The television personality married the late Hugh Hefner in 2012 and was with him until he passed away in 2017.
