Star Wars star Daisy Ridley is the newest celebrity to share a "no makeup selfie," but she took the realness to the next level by also having zit cream all over her face (according to her hashtags, she still threw a filter on it, though). Like all of us, it would seem that the break-out star is still prone to break outs. Of course, she still looks beautiful despite the many little white dots.
She decided to post the picture following this Instagram of her looking all done-up for the Vanity Fair Oscars party. She initially claimed that no one wanted to see her in her spot cream, but after the Internet objected, eventually she gave the people what they wanted.
ALMOST 2 MILLION FOLLOWERS WHAT?! I'm currently sat writing an essay covered in spot cream drinking mint tea but no one wants to see that so instead here's me looking all fancy pants at the post Oscars Vanity Fair pardeeeee!
Ridley has not been shy about her skin insecurities. She previously uploaded this a fake #nomakeup selfie with a caption that explained why she would never really post a makeup-free selfie. Looks like she has since changed her mind!
3 of these statements aren't true... Social media is great but also a bit scary cause what people post is the most filtered, most carefully chosen and cleverly edited moments of their lives. And self esteem is a huge issue for people around the world. My skin isn't great so I don't post no make up selfies, much as I'd like to; I have a trainer urging me on in workouts and don't include all the times I say 'I can't do it' and I don't smile all the time but I like to share the pictures where I am. But I actually do love myself, I try to think good thoughts always and am surrounded by the most wonderful people, so I'm keeping it balanced (like the Force, obvs). Just thought I'd say :)
And this, good people, is why Daisy Ridley is the beautiful nerd-queen that has captured the hearts of millions. Keep keepin' it real, Daisy.
