Daisy Ridley loves a good DIY beauty treatment. In fact, the Star Wars actress isn’t afraid to let fans in on her at-home tips and tricks — even if they don’t always go according to plan.

Case in point: After Googling “at-home remedies for skin,” the star fell upon a turmeric treatment to help remedy her pesky breakouts in a pinch. But, according to the star, she was “slightly liberal” with the yellow-tinted herb during the application process, and it unfortunately left her complexion more mustard-hued than sunkissed goddess.

“??? I scrubbed my face and I am YELLOW! Ahahahahaha,” she wrote on Instagram. “Will have to see if I’m a squeaky clean clear skinned goddess in the morning… #wishmeluck #forrealsfloraimsosorryifimstillyellowinthemorning #benmorrisyoutoo.”


In the clip (above), Ridley joked that she had to go to set the next day (with her newly dyed yellow complexion) to continue filming the next Star Wars installment, not “Minions 2.”

Ridley’s turmeric treatment isn’t the first time she’s aired her skincare woes on social media. Last month, the actress opened up about her nine-year battle with endometriosis, which, she admitted, wreaks havoc on her skin.


“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,” she wrote. “I’ve tried everything: products, antibiotics, more products, more antibiotics) and all that did was left my body in a bit of a mess. Finally found out I have polycystic ovaries and that’s why it’s bad. I can safely say feeling so self conscious has left my confidence in tatters.”

The star added that after a modifying her diet, seeing a specialist regular and finding the right treatments, she’s seen improvements in her skin.

“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,” she urged fans.

We couldn’t agree more.
