Daisy Ridley 'hates' wearing make-up
Daisy Ridley "hates" wearing make-up.
The 24-year-old actress has admitted she doesn't like to smother her face in cosmetic products, but she also feels she can't step foot outside of her house without applying a face-full of make-up because her battle with endometriosis - a condition where body tissue sheds like the inside of a womb - and having polycystic ovary syndrome, has caused her to have "the worst" skin.
The brunette beauty shared a picture of her with cream on her face via Instagram to openly talk about her nine-year battle with the condition. She wrote: "At 15 I was diagnosed with endometriosis. One laparoscopy, many consultations and 8 years down the line, pain was back (more mild this time!) and my skin was THE WORST. I've tried everything: products, antibiotics, more products, more antibiotics) and all that did was left my body in a bit of a mess. Finally found out I have polycycstic ovaries and that's why it's bad. I can safely say feeling so self conscious has left my confidence in tatters. I hate wearing make up but I currently don't want to leave the house without it on. HOWEVER PROGRESS IS BEING MADE! (With some help from a dermatologist and cutting out dairy (waah, except for spontaneous ice creams) and cutting down sugar (bigger waah but gotta do what you've gotta do)). Finally. Finally. (Throughout all this I've only had people being wonderful and encouraging and occasionally making me realise I'm being ridiculous and there's more to life)... My point is, to any of you who are suffering with anything, go to a doctor; pay for a specialist; get your hormones tested, get allergy testing; keep on top of how your body is feeling and don't worry about sounding like a hypochondriac. From your head to the tips of your toes we only have one body, let us all make sure ours our working in tip top condition, and take help if it's needed.#wasthispostlongenough#maybethesehashtagscanbulkitupabit#alsohowmanybracketsdoesonewomanneed #ifyourereadingthisiapplaudyou#thisisaclaymaskincaseyourewondering (sic)."
Meanwhile, Daisy - who made her debut in the science fiction sequel 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' last year, which saw her cast as the main protagonist Rey - has hit out at bodyshamers.
The London-born star previously responded to a meme on Instagram which featured a picture of her in character as Rey with the words "I can't believe the unrealistic expectations I'm setting for young girls. Who cast me anyway? Don't they know real women have curves?"
Posting a screenshot of the meme, Daisy wrote: "'Real women' are all shapes and sizes, all ethnicities, all levels of brave, have families, don't have families. I am a 'real women' like every other woman in this world. (sic)."
