Salma Hayek's Acne Story

27th October 2014

Even though most people think of Salma Hayek as an outstandingly beautiful woman with flawless skin, it turns out that like many of us, it wasn't always that way. She suffered for many years with debilitating acne which led to depression and weight gain.

Skin Issues

In her mid-20s, around the time that Salma decided to make the move from Mexico to try and make it in Hollywood, she had serious issues with her skin. She had severe acne which threatened not only her self-confidence but also her career.

Downward Spiral

The acne caused Salma to become very depressed which led to her to seek comfort in food, which in turn, led to significant weight gain. Like many suffering from acne and/or depression, she felt too low to leave her house.


Acne Treatment

Thankfully for Salma, and many other acne sufferers, there are multiple treatments available to help reduce the problem. By taking action and relying on support from family, friends and professionals, she was able to get her life and career back on track.

A qualified dermatologist can advise on the right treatment to maintain clear, blemish-free skin. They will also be able to use their expertise to recommend aftercare that can help you make the most of the treatment.
