Millie Court shares her ‘bad’ acne breakout as she goes off the pill:
Love Island winner Millie Court has posted a snap of a “strange” and “pretty bad” skin breakout after taking a break from birth control pills.
The 24-year-old star is often open about suffering from the skin condition, often sharing tips and tricks with fans, as well as snaps from days when she’s struggling.
In a new Instagram Story post, Millie – who recently enjoyed a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Coachella – shared a mirror selfie showing a breakout on one side of her face.
She added of the snap, “I took a break from my pill once a month and then realized I had left my remaining packets in Palm Springs.”
After an upside-down emoji, she continued, “So I’ve had a longer break than normal, which I think is why [for] I’m breaking out.”
“I also forgot to take my skin pills and I’ve been traveling quite a bit lately, it definitely didn’t help! Back to prioritizing my skin routine.”
Wanting to normalize pimples, Millie concluded, “Note of the Day: It’s okay and normal not to have perfect skin.”
Many celebs attended this year’s Coachella and Millie enjoyed her luxurious stay with her best friend Lucinda Strafford and RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star A’Whora.
The trio posted plenty of enviable snaps and videos from the festival – and Lucinda even revealed she’d caught the eye of an A-list Hollywood actor.
Since Millie rose to fame on last summer’s Love Island series, she has frequently shared encouraging messages with fans.
On International Women’s Day, she urged her social media followers to “love your imperfections” as she posed makeup-free.
“When you learn to embrace them and realize that our imperfections don’t define us,” she wrote. “You are just a part of us alongside everything else that makes you a person.
“None of us are the same and that is something special. We are unique,” she concluded.
Almost a year after they first met, Millie and Liam are still going strong and now live together in Essex.
And it seems wedding bells may be ringing in the future, as during a recent conversation with OK!Millie teased that she and Liam might be ready to take things to the next level.
