Celebrity Kerry Washington Gets Acne Dark Spots Too

Acne hyperpigmentation is absolutely merciless. Once I saw the picture of Kerry Washington without her makeup, I knew she struggles with her skin everyday just like many others do. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (the discoloration left after an acne breakout) does not care if you are a beautiful celebrity like Kerry Washington or one of the regular masses trying to make an living everyday.

It just doesn't care.

Celebrities are not immune to skin problems. Even with a team of fashion stylists, hairdressers and make-up artists, nothing can prevent acne leaving brown spots on darker skin once the pimple has left.

Celebrities Have a Team of Beauty Specialists

That is why celebrities spend thousands of dollars at the dermatologist to make sure a pimple never shows up. Or if it does show up, the dermatologist is there with a needle at the ready to make sure it never gets a chance to do too much damage. And even if a mark happens to get left behind, there is always makeup concealer to cover that spot.

And airbrushing in Photoshop to erase it in your magazine covers. There are also lighting technicians to adjust light on movie sets.

Yes, it must be nice to be a celebrity with a team to help you look your best everyday.

If you suffer from acne and your skin is naturally olive or brown like Kerry Washington's, it's double trouble because you have to deal with the acne and then you have to try to eliminate the inevitable dark brown spots that are left behind. The hyperpigmentation will last much longer than the actual pimple. Sometimes several months later it will still be there, mocking you.

If only you had a dermatologist on speed dial.

But you figure, “How can I afford treatment? I don't have the same money as Hollywood celebrities!”

Celebritiy Skin Treatments You Can Do At Home

There is still hope. Clinical treatments for hyperpigmentation are more affordable than ever, but even if that's not in your budget, there are still remedies for hyperpigmentation that can be done safely in your own home. Science has advanced so much in the cosmetic industry that there are plenty of effective skin lightening creams, microdermabrasion kits and natural hyperpigmentation remedies available at a fraction of the cost of clinical treatments.

Of course there are many scam products out there that offer false promises and may do nothing to fade the dark marks. Some creams may even have ingredients that could damage your skin permanently.

Be an informed consumer and do your research. Check out the best ingredients in hyperpigmentation creams available online and choose the best treatment for your skin.

Jerusha, Good points! Thanks for an informative article. I've also found with Rosacea, often called, "Adult Acne" though it's much more -- that makeup itself seems to aggravate my face. blessings, Cynthia

Thanks for the compliment Cynthia. I wonder if mineral makeup is irritating for Rosacea too. I have to use mineral makeup nowadays. Anything else feels really heavy and clogs my pores.

Jerusha, Hmm. I don't know. That's a good question. I'm recovering from major surgery (and more) so I kind of gave up makeup. Oooh. Come to think of it? Last year I can only count that wore makeup exactly twice. Once for my nephew's rehearsal dinner. Once for their wedding! blessings, Cynthia
