Superstars Struggle with Clear Skin: Dr. Ted Lain Dermatology

Posted by | May 13, 2015 | Uncategorized | No Comments

Unless you are also a world-famous pop singer with a thing for blue hair and cupcake bras, you probably don’t think of yourself as sharing many common experiences with Katy Perry, or any other celebrity for that matter. After all, they’re the people who have discovered the secret to looking perfect all the time, right? They wouldn’t understand the embarrassment and discomfort of breakouts and acnes scars.

That’s where you’re wrong.

Contrary to popular belief, celebrities are not welcomed into the spotlight with a basket full of magical products to guarantee eternally flawless skin. In fact, many stars struggle or used to struggle with acne as much as anyone else. Here are a few media darlings who know how you feel as you search for acne treatment in Austin:

  • Katy Perry, whom we mentioned earlier, battled acne early in her career. She states in a Vogue interview, “My skin used to be a lot worse than it is. So we would do a lot of coverage cause I was insecure about my skin.”
  • Adam Levine had serious trouble with acne as a teenager; he was also recently voted ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ in People Magazine. If that’s not a story that gives you hope for your own acne treatment in Austin, then we don’t know what is!
  • Emma Stone admits in a Refinery 29 interview, “I’m actually pretty interested in skin care because I had bad hormonal acne when I was 17, and they put me on Accutane for it. After two months on the Accutane, I went off of it, and since then, my skin, my mouth, my lips, my eyes are all so dry. Then, I had stress acne when I was 20, when I did ‘Easy A’, which they kindly video-airbrushed out of the movie.”
  • Keira Knightley said in a 2006 interview with Now Magazine that it takes about four hours of prep time to create her flawless on-screen complexion. She wishes her acne could be airbrushed away in her everyday life—don’t we all?

In the real world, where people live with real skin, almost everyone fights off acne to some degree. Not even fame can change that. But that shouldn’t be a discouraging thought. We don’t remember these performing artists because of their “terrible” skin—we remember their work, talent, and personalities.

We offer specialized cleansers, laser procedures, chemical peels, and more. With a solid skincare routine and the right attitude, you could enjoy a success story just like these famous faces.
