Famous Women Talk About Fighting Acne & About The Shame They Get Because Of Their Appearance

Date February 26, 2018

Celebrities are just like us. They may have glamorous wardrobes, luxurious houses, and personal stylists, but there's one thing they share with normal people: skin problems. Too much chocolate, too many fast-food, too much coffee - what we eat can flare up the acne, but even having a perfectly balanced diet won’t necessarily cure it.

Famous women openly talk about their experience of fighting acne and about shaming they get because of their not so perfect skin.


Kate Winslet

Kate Winslet began to experience serious skin problems when she turned 30. The star confessed she was tired of reading about her skin imperfections and thinking, “Oh, look at me, I'm covered in ugly spots, proper cystic bumps, if only they knew how embarrassing it was.”

Talking about the remedies to stop acne, Kate is confident it’s something only dermatologists should prescribe.


Rihanna says she got used to pimples and she expects them every month.

I have an ugly day every month; pimples on my face, I’m fat and in a bad mood.

When she feels like her skin is not perfect and covered with acne, she cuts out all alcohol and coffee and drinks more water.

Katy Perry

The singer confessed that her insecurities with acne make her stay inside or even wear makeup to bed.

Bad skin really made me want to hide.

To fight acne, Katy uses Proactive skin products with an active ingredient, benzoyl peroxide. It helps to vanquish acne bacteria and is recommended by dermatologists.

Kaley Cuoco


Bing Bang Theory star revealed she feels insecure whenever she acts in front of the camera. It happens due to her “terrible, terrible skin.”

Kaley used to treat her skin with "the harshest prescription," but nothing changed until she stopped eating fast food every day.

My skin began to clear up! My acne wasn't totally gone but it was significantly better.

Kendall Jenner


During the Golden Globe Awards 2018, Kendall Jenner caused vivid discussions among fans and people on social media. However, it was not her gorgeous dress that aroused public interest. Fans were more focused on what was on her face, and she soon became a trending topic for the whole ceremony.

I wouldn’t even look at people when I talked to them. I felt like such an outcast; when I spoke, it was with my hand covering my face.

Jenner wrote that her acne emerged when she was in the eighth grade, but even at an adult age, she is still experiencing skin problems. The star uses laser treatment to eliminate redness and stimulate the production of collagen.

Cameron Diaz

Like most celebrity women, Cameron Diaz says that skin problems eliminate her confidence in front of the camera.

It was embarrassing. I tried to cover it with makeup. I tried to get rid of it with medication. Nothing helped for very long.

Diaz revealed her acne cleared up when she stopped eating cheeseburgers and fries so frequently.

Emma Stone


In one of her interviews, Emma said she experienced hormonal acne as a teenager, but even now she still suffers from skin imperfections during certain days of a month.  The star used cortisone shots to prevent acne flare-ups.

A cortisone shot from a dermatologist makes my acne fade away in a matter of days. The injections contain a steroid that fights inflammation.


It appears the famous women are just like us when it comes to skin problems. Fortunately, all these celebrities learned how to fight with imperfections and overcome shaming because of their appearance. We should follow their example too. Just keep in mind, dear ladies, we are always beautiful no matter what.
