Emma Stone, Along With Millions of Others, Has Acne
Along with her impressive acting chops, actress Emma Stone is known for her porcelain skin and has a contract with a major cosmetic company. But evenThe Amazing Spider-Manactress gets . According to the American Academy of Dermatology, this common skin condition affects an estimated 40 to 50 million Americans and is caused when dead skin cells clog pores as a result of a buildup of sebum in the skin.
Stone has said she had hormonal acne as a teenager and treated it with Accutane, a prescription form of vitamin A that has since been discontinued because of its side effects and was pulled from the market. Stone herself only took the drug for two months as it made her skin, lips, and eyes overly dry. Then when she was 20, she developed cystic acne, a type of acne marked by hard, painful bumps that start deep in the pores. “I realized how debilitating and embarrassing it can be to have cystic acne,” she told Refinery29. “So, I'm really interested in the biology of what makes up acne and how to work on it from the outside, too.” As a result, she says, "I'm vigilant about skin care across the board, both with sun and breakouts."
Acne is treated with topical creams, oral antibiotics, light and laser treatments, and chemical peels. You may find that your acne improves as you grow out of your teens, only to have it pop up again in your 20s, as Stone’s did. Acne can also appear in your 30s and 40s, though it is generally most severe in your younger years.
