Naomi Watts is speaking out about a skin condition she was diagnosed with while filming her Netflix show “Gypsy.”

“I was really suffering from rosacea. It was making my life miserable,” she told The Sunday Times Style. “My skin was just saying leave me alone.”

“Gypsy” ran for one season in 2017 before ultimately being canceled. During its production in 2016, Watts was working 16-hour days and reportedly had to get her makeup done “two to three times a day.” On top of all that, she had to sit under “hot lights” for many hours to make sure her skin and makeup was looking perfect.

According to the Mayo Clinic, rosacea is “a common skin condition that causes redness and visible blood vessels in your face. It may also produce small, red, pus-filled bumps.”

This skin condition was said to be a determining factor when the film star co-founded the clean beauty line ONDA with Larissa Thomson and Sarah Bryden-Brown.

“ONDA is the natural authority for living beautifully,” the website reads. “First came eating whole foods, organics and green cleaning products and now it’s clear the beauty industry is following the mainstream move to ethically sourced, clean, non-toxic and organic ingredients.”

The 51-year-old actress and now business owner went on to talk about another health issue she has endured —menopause. She believes that society makes women feel “unsexy” when they are going through it.

“Menopause should not be a dirty word,” she added. “It’s a shame society has made it so. We need support from each other, and not to be made to feel like unsexy, infertile, crabby old ladies that should be sent out to pasture.”

“We actually have wisdom and compassion that far outweighs youthful arrogance. Along with some mood swings and floods of tears on the side,” Watts pointed out.
