Is there any such thing as a celebrity who suffers from acne?
At first, it seems not… but that's only a myth - there really are celebrities out there who suffer from acne!
Many people envy those who have achieved celebrity status. They are viewed as rich and powerful… glamorous and sometimes even a little super-human.
When you see them on television, in movies or in the glossy magazines the men always look ruggedly handsome and the women look stunningly beautiful.
Seldom are we given the chance to see these celebrities, in the comfort and privacy of their own homes, as they wake up in the mornings. No doubt the envious population would change their options somewhat knowing that almost no one is particularly glamorous at that time of day.
Cosmetics, technology and advanced photo editing methods can easily make people look younger, thinner and magically cover up flaws such as freckles, scars and acne. This is just what the producers of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire have had to do.
All three adolescent stars - Daniel Radcliffe who plays Harry Potter, 15. Rupert Grint who plays Ron Weasley, 17 and Emma Watson 15, who plays Hermione Granger - have broken out with acne forcing the film makers of Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire to use special effects to hide their skin imperfections.
Celebrities deal with the same problems the rest of us do, acne being one of them. Britney Spears, Judith Light, Stephanie Seymour and Elle Macpherson have all publicly discussed how they have suffered from and corrected their acne problem.
By doing so, they have not only helped themselves, but millions of other acne sufferers around the world - they are positive proof that acne treatments work.
Your acne problem won't be gone overnight, it will take time. But as you begin to see an improvement in your condition it's quite possible that you will begin to feel like a celebrity, too!
