Stranger Things sensation Millie Bobby Brown is making waves once again, this time by posting a candid selfie that embraces her acne. The 19-year-old actress, known for her role as Eleven in the hit Netflix series, took to social media to share a close-up photo of her natural skin. In an effort to promote her skincare and beauty line, Florence by Mills, she playfully captioned the snap with 'send help!'
By revealing her own bad skin days, Brown aims to show her fans that even celebrities face similar challenges. She followed up with a radiant, fully made-up photo, highlighting the effectiveness of her makeup brand. The post received positive feedback from her Stranger Things co-star Noah Schnapp, who commented, 'Love it,' and Oscar winner Octavia Spencer, who attributed the breakout to 'hormones.'
Fans expressed their gratitude for Brown normalizing breakouts and empowering those who struggle with acne. Many of them feel more confident and comfortable in their skin, realizing that experiencing acne is a normal part of life. Thankful followers commented, expressing their appreciation for the actress and her supportive message.
Millie Bobby Brown launched her makeup line, Florence by Mills, in 2019. The actress admitted to Allure that she initially had little knowledge about beauty and skincare. However, she decided to embark on a learning journey to discover more about botanicals, serums, fruit and vegetable extracts, and enzymes—essential elements for healthy skin that are often overlooked by young people.
Florence by Mills takes pride in being vegan and cruelty-free, following a 'clean' approach that avoids potentially harmful ingredients and supports environmental and animal welfare causes. However, in a candid interview with Marie Claire, Brown confessed that she occasionally deviates from her typical eating habits. While she recognizes the health benefits of fruits and vegetables, she admitted to incorporating meat back into her diet to boost her energy levels during physically demanding film projects.
Recently, the young actress's latest film, Damsel, faced a delay in its release. Originally scheduled for October 13, the debut has been pushed back to a later date in 2024. In the movie, Brown portrays Princess Elodie, a character faced with an unforeseen fate—being sacrificed to a dragon to settle an ancient debt. To survive, Princess Elodie must rely on her wit and physical abilities, making for an exciting and empowering story.
