Millie Bobby Brown may have her own skin care line, but the Florence by Mills founder wants to make it clear that she still gets breakouts. In a new selfie posted on Instagram, Brown showed her followers the expectations versus the reality of dealing with adult acne.
The first shot shows Brown glammed up with a glittery smoky eye and nude lip, but in the second photo, the actor and Glamour Global Women of the Year cover star, never been shy about her struggles with acne, shared an unfiltered look at her breakouts. In the snap, taken in a car, she has no makeup on and shows off a few pimples and inflammation on her forehead and cheek. She also called out her own skin care line in the caption, writing, “@florencebymills send help!”
In Brown’s Glamour cover story, she opened up about branching out from acting with her beauty line. “It’s like — I know I should make this movie now. I know I should write this book now. I know I should do this now,” she said. “It’s not because I can’t do it in 10 years; of course I can do it in 10 years. But why, when I know that it’s going to work now? Just like Florence will be there in 10 years. You’ll be able to see my movie in 10 years on TV.”
The star also previously told Glamour that she has no problem showing her acne on Instagram and encourages others to do the same. “I don’t like that social media has a lot to do with beauty perception,” she said. “Being someone else on social media is not healthy. I think it’s so important for other people to see the side of you where you have no makeup on and where you actually just woke up. That’s why I like to expose my pimples online, and be like, ‘Guys, look, it’s awful.’ It’s like, who cares? Everybody gets them. Social media should be a place to talk about real things — real situations — and I don’t think we should be hiding.”
