Cameron Diaz Was Embarrassed by Her Adult Acne

 Cameron Diaz Launches Tag Heuer Link Watch Event to Raise Money for UN Women and New York Cares Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort

Actress Cameron Diaz has revealed that she was left embarrassed after constantly suffering from terrible adult acne that she simply couldn’t get rid of. Cam confesses that she tried everything to try and make her spots disappear and she couldn’t find a solution. Cameron admits that no matter what she tried, the spots wouldn’t fade for very long:

“I mean, I had terrible, terrible, skin, it was embarrassing, and I did everything I could think of to make it go away. I tried to cover it with makeup. I tried to get rid of it with medication: oral, topical, even the harshest prescriptions. Nothing helped for very long.”

She adds that covering up her acne was always difficult when she was appearing on camera and she says that the whole situation left her feeling down about herself:

“It was really challenging to cover them up for the cameras. It was awkward and embarrassing and frustrating, and I always felt really bad about myself.”

Cameron only discovered the cure when she stopped trying to find quick solutions and noticed that her diet was to blame:

“I eat a cheeseburger with french fries every day.” Cameron says the big change happened when she started to cook homemade food “a funny thing happened … my skin began to clear up! My acne wasn’t totally gone, but it was significantly better.”

The 41-year-old says that she didn’t even need all of the solutions she was trying to apply to herself at the time because it was all about her own body to begin with:

“Looking back, I realize that I hadn’t needed those prescription drugs, those vials of potions and creams, I hadn’t needed to be angry at my skin or feel bad about myself. I had just needed to LISTEN TO MY BODY. … acne was my body’s alarm system, it was mew ay of telling me [to stop eating fast food].”
