Celebrities may sport flawless skin on the red carpet regularly, however, they are all of us when it comes to blemishes or acne. They want out- and Olivia Munn hasn't been shy about it at a recent Proactiv event in NYC.
The spokesmodel for the brand revealed in an interview with Yahoo Beauty, “I was on this medicine a few years back that gave me cystic acne out of nowhere, and it was like out of everything I tried nothing would make it go away.”
Looking for a solution, the gorgeous actress told Enews, "I've done cortisone. I did the toothpaste on it. I've done the acids—like you know that thing when you feel like I have to basically rip off my skin to start anew? I've basically tried all those."
"The only problem is that [cortisone] can sometimes collapse your skin, so you can literally get a divot in your skin," she adds about the quick fix shot you can request from your Dermatologist to reduce inflammation and redness within hours.
So what’s her secret to bust blemishes without causing damage? "My first tip is don't wait,” she warns. “If you start to feel it, put something on immediately.”
If a spot treatment isn’t in reach, she suggests a warm face cloth.
“It will either make the pimple go down or it will bring it up so you can then try to take care of it," she adds. But the biggest thing is, “don't pop.”
