Celebrities normalising real skin gets major praise from us

Millie Bobby Brown, at 20, isn’t one to embrace the filtered life, even on a bad skin day with her acne. 

The actress recently took to social media to share her journey with acne, posting a snap of her real skin on her skincare brand’s page, florence by mills. 

In her post via her skincare brand, florence by mills, Millie bravely showcases her skin’s texture and blemishes, choosing to embrace them wholeheartedly.

“‘#embraceyourskin as told by mills,’ she wrote.

“My journey with acne is deeply personal. we all deserve to feel confident and comfortable in our own skin, and I hope that by sharing my experience, you feel inspired to embrace your skin and love it, no matter its stage. xo – millie.”

Whether you’re dealing with the occasional breakout or on a journey to heal your acne, it’s a shared experience among us all. 

None of us escape life without getting spots. 

Yet, amidst the filtered images, professional makeup, and expert skincare routines plastered on our screens, it’s easy to lose sight of the normalcy of skin imperfections.

Breakouts can be triggered by various factors, such as the environment, our hormones, genetics, and more.

Even with the best skincare, there are times when we have no control over our skin’s appearance.

Millie, a 20-year-old, experiences breakouts just like millions of others her age, who often feel pressured to hide them.

While her post may seem like a small gesture for a bigger issue, it’s the right kind of step towards removing the insecurity surrounding acne, particularly for younger generations.

It’s a reminder that imperfections are normal and beautiful in their own right.

Many Instagram users were impressed by the Enola Holmes actress’s transparency about her skin.

“Thank you millie really for all this you are doing for all of us who are struggling to feel good about ourselves!!! We are all perfect,” one user praised.

“Millie helps us all to feel comfortable in our own skin,” another added.

“so real. thank you for this,” a third wrote.
