Emma Stone Sounds Off On Acne

By December 13, 2012

Follow me on:

Actress Emma Stone is super gorgeous, right? She always looks flawless (seriously, I am totally in love with her hair.) Who knew she has acne, too?

During an interview with Refinery29, Ms. Stone admits that she had cystic acne during her teenage years. In fact, she did a course of Accutane.

And I really love that she's honest about the problems she has with her skin (I feel so bonded to her right now!) She also divulges the fact that her breakouts were video-airbrushed out of the movie Easy A, and how she still runs to the dermatologist when she's in the midst of a breakout. Cortisone injections are one of her favorite "emergency" treatments.  Never tried one? They're great for those big, inflamed, ouchy blemishes.

Whenever someone in the public eye comes out and is so frank about their struggles with acne, it makes me want to shout from the rooftops. Acne can make us feel embarrassed and ashamed of who we are. So seeing that you can be confident and beautiful, and have acne, is a great feeling.

What do you think? Let me know in the comment section below.
