Top 10 Celebrity Acne Cases

For most of us, acne is an inevitability of adolescence. Characterized by blackheads, cysts, redness, and inflammation, acne is an unsightly and embarrassing skin condition that for some, can last all the way into adulthood. And while we can’t always achieve aesthetic perfection, we can take comfort in the fact that underneath all that glitz and glamour, celebrities suffer from the same maladies as us common folk. These Hollywood stars have been battling acne for years:

Britney Spears

Pop sensation Britney Spears emerged as a rising star in her teen years, so it was no surprise that she too suffered from acne. Her problem was relieved as soon as she started taking the standard prescription medications. The blemishes reappeared during pregnancy, as is common with spikes in hormones, but again cleared up after the birth of her baby. Today, Spears’s skin is glowing and healthy, but not without the help of expert airbrushing techniques.

Jessica Simpson

Commonly seen as a spokesperson for the Proactive skincare line, Jessica Simpson has been battling acne for years. As a teen, she took prescription medication that worked temporarily, but her skin soon reverted back to its original state. Since then, she’s tried several skin care line until she found one that worked for her. She’s even agreed to be photographed when dealing with a breakout. While this approach may be unconventional, it also brings to light an uncommon bravery that shows the public acne can be dealt with.

Cameron Diaz

This Charlie’s Angel may look flawless on the red carpet, but beneath her expertly applied foundation lie the same imperfections that face the rest of us. Unfortunately, most of us don’t have a team of makeup artists working to help us put our best face forward. Although Diaz does not openly speak about her skin condition, she does acknowledge it, claiming that although she still suffers from adult acne, she noticed a major improvement in her skin after she quit smoking. So she’s not perfect – shocker, right? With or without blemishes, Cameron’s still a showstopper in our books.

Brad Pitt

Most women will agree that Brad Pitt is breathtakingly handsome, so it may come as a shock to discover that he too has been dealing with acne throughout his life – and he’s got the scars to prove it. Make-up and airbrushing will usually take of most of it for photo-shoots and movie roles, but he still has to deal with the scarring in his daily life. Still, he is constantly in the spotlight and with or without makeup is able to exude a confidence unrivalled by most other actors.

Megan Fox

Male fantasy, Megan Fox suffers from acne and acne scars too. Fox admits that her photo-shoots require a fair bit of airbrushing to help hide the scarring. However, red carpet appearances tend to more blatantly reveal those minor imperfections even with exceptional makeup artistry. Thank god – she’s not perfect, after all.

Daniel Radcliffe

“Harry Potter” elegedly suffered a severe break out during filming of the last movie.

Keira Knightley

This seemingly infallible actress has admitted to airbrushing in her photo-shoots to help cover acne scars.

Katy Perry

The “I Kissed a Girl” singer has recently taken over for Jessica Simpson as Proactive’s celebrity spokesperson, citing her own ongoing battles with blemishes.

Justin Timberlake

Turns out, Cameron Diaz’s ex can’t escape those bumps and imperfections any more than she can.

Leonardo DiCaprio

Dicaprio’s adolescent acne lingered for some time in his adulthood as well.

Some celebrities have chosen to use other methods to deal with the after-effects of acne: Actor Edward James Olmos has very visible acne scars, and chooses not to cover them up with anything but a mustache; Jerry Garcia of The Grateful Dead covered his scars with a bushy beard.

Celebrities address their skin problems with top of the line cosmetic treatments. Well guess what – those same treatments are offered to the general public and are more affordable than you think! Procedures most effective at treating acne include Microdermabrasion, IPL Photofacial, Bluelight Therapy, Thermage, Laser Skin Rejuvenation, and Chemical Peels, all of which are offered by the experienced physicians of the Healthy Skin PortalNetwork.
