Daisy Ridley may be one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood, but she's not afraid to point our her imperfections.
The "Star Wars" star is opening up to her fans about her painful struggle with endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome in an incredibly candid new Instagram post.
Alongside a photo of herself sporting a facial mask, the 24-year-old actress says it's been a long battle.
"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," she says. "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," she adds. "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."
Ridley is the latest celebrity to publicly address her battle with endometriosis, a chronic condition where "tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus — the endometrium — grows outside your uterus."
Both Lena Dunham and Padma Lakshmi have also talked about their struggles.
