Celebrities And Their Skincare Secrets To Deal With Breakouts

Whenever you look at celebrities, they always have perfect skin. No matter where they are or what they’re doing – be it award shows, on-screen, or just a casual outing – their skin seems to glow. Us mortals, on the other hand, seem to struggle with it all the time. No matter what our skincare routine consists of, they never seem to go away.

An important thing to know is that these celebrities are like “us mortals” too. All of them struggle with their skin – with acne, breakouts, pimples, and whatnot. They’re not magically blessed with clear skin. Like you struggle with your pimples, Beyonce does too.

The only difference is that most, if not all. pictures you see of these celebrities have been edited and airbrushed to make them look flawless.

So, what is it that these celebrities add to their skincare routine to make their skin look so good?

Seventeen.com compiled a list of many, many celebrities talking about their struggles with their skin, and how they treat it.



“I have cystic acne, so I use a Manuka honey mask to combat it and hemp oil to smooth out the surface of my skin,” she told Refinery29. “I also use a Vitamin C serum and black soap, and that’s it. If I go to the dermatologist and get a peel, she prescribes me shit after, but I don’t use it. My skin goes crazy, and I break out.”

“Usually, I’ll use a clay mask or deep cleansing mask after a long day of wearing makeup. My favorite masks are the GlamGlow Supermud Mask and anything PUR. I actually don’t break out very often, ever since I gave up dairy. When I get breakouts, I leave them alone and pray for the best.”



“I now moisturize my face every night and put on body lotion after I shower, not just in the winter, but all year round, because, why can’t I be soft during all the seasons?!”



“When I’m filming a lot I try to get [facials] once every two weeks because I wear so much makeup on set and it’s just getting caked on,” the actress told People. She also says that once in a while, she’ll add a professional microdermabrasion to her face routine. “I do it to just kind of exfoliate and then I can see all the makeup that’s been stuck into my pores. So that helps a lot!”



“My chin gets it the worst because I hold my microphone as close to me as I possibly can, because some of my music has softer tones to it. So the chin is always the first area that I treat. I usually put a mask on and a humidifier on my face after my show.”



“There is this focus on skincare and having a great base that I’ve learned from both sides of my family. That starts with eating well, and using cardamom to cleanse is part of it. Cardamom is great for you and has a number of skincare benefits [like vitamin C and boosting circulation]. One of the only ingredients in Persian tea is cardamom. So it’s really about finding those things, whether it’s a tea or juice, that help supplement your skincare routine through your diet. It’s about making sure that you internally take of yourself, that you focus on fixing more than what’s externally visible.”



“The [Bioré] pore strips have always been a staple for me. I like products where you can really feel like it’s working, and of course you can see all your blackheads getting ripped out.”

“With Bioré’s new Baking Soda Acne Cleansing Foam you really feel like it’s working and I like that—I need that in a face product.”


“Try green tea facials or a mud mask. I use them every night, and I get great results.”



“I put a super-super-hot towel on [the pimple]. If it’s inflamed, it’ll go down — at least for me — and the towel also clears the redness away.”


“I make my own toner with Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. I take about 4-6 oz. of bottled water and put in one teaspoon of the apple cider vinegar in a small plastic bottle. I use it in the morning after cleansing my skin and then at night, after taking off all my makeup. I love it because it’s all natural. Then, I just moisturize and I’m done.”



“The one thing that I cannot live without when I’m traveling is a small container of tea tree oil. It’s not the most glamorous thing, but if you get a cut, a mosquito bite, a small breakout, no matter what it is, it’s my little cure-all. It’s inexpensive, it’s small enough to carry on, and I bring it with me all the time.”


“I think the best thing to do is to make sure you don’t keep piling makeup on it. Just kind of let it be and wash your face.”

“You don’t want it to turn into something bigger. The best thing is the Clean & Clear 60 Second Shower Face Mask. You just put it on and then take a shower, and the heat from the shower activates the mask. Your face gets all tingly. It feels so good.”


“I use this On The Spot acne treatment for stuff like that. I also use Murad Daily Cleansing Foam. It feels easy and not too mature for my skin. And then I’ll follow up with Murad Clarifying Toner, which is a new step for me because my makeup artist recently told me how important toner is if you have oily skin. This one is lightweight but it gets the job done. Then I have the Neutrogena Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub because I have blackheads, and I hate them. But I don’t do that everyday so that I don’t over-exfoliate.”



“My skin-care regimen is, like, 20 minutes long. Everyone always laughs at me because my mom, from a young age, got me into cleansing. I remove my makeup with my favorite Neutrogena wipes, I cleanse my skin with my Clarisonic, and then I do my serum, my acne treatment, and then I do eye cream and my moisturizer. That’s me every morning, every night.”


“I take enjoyment from having a professional pop a zit. They know what to do, especially when you’ve been so patient and haven’t picked out a zit. I go once a month.”

“I dealt with really bad cystic acne growing up. I tried changing my diet and my beauty products before going on Accutane.”



“Whenever it’s been really bad, I’ve gone to the dermatologist to get those cortisone shots. Those are amazing. They’re kind of a miracle. But also kind of terrifying because this huge needle is coming at your face. But no pain, no gain!”
