Cameron Diaz is currently ruining the remake of Annie but also found time to contribute to a book about health, called The Body Book. In it, she’s very honest about her struggles with her bad acne problem. Here’s what she says about it, plus the solution she found, via Radar:
I mean, I had terrible, terrible, skin. It was embarrassing, and I did everything I could think of to make it go away. I tried to cover it with makeup. I tried to get rid of it with medication: oral, topical, even the harshest prescriptions. Nothing helped for very long.
It was really challenging to cover them up for the cameras. It was awkward and embarrassing and frustrating, and I always felt really bad about myself.
I [used to] eat a cheeseburger with french fries every day. [But once I stopped] a funny thing happened … my skin began to clear up! My acne wasn’t totally gone, but it was significantly better.
Looking back, I realize that I hadn’t needed those prescription drugs, those vials of potions and creams. I hadn’t needed to be angry at my skin or feel bad about myself. I had just needed to LISTEN TO MY BODY. … acne was my body’s alarm system, it was mew ay of telling me [to stop eating fast food].
Okay, see, I always thought that greasy fast food causing acne was a rumor. You know, Gwyneth talk. But hey, if she says this works, then good for her!
Anyone here suffer from acne? What do you do to treat it?
