Surprising Celebs with Skin Conditions

Anyone can develop a skin condition, and celebrities are no exception. But even though many skin issues can interfere with your appearance, these stars haven’t let their differences stop them from being in the spotlight. As with the following famous faces, your skin issues don’t have to get in the way of living your best life.

Kim Kardashian

The Kardashians have become a household name since their reality TV series debuted in 2007. No matter your opinion on them, there’s no denying Kim K.’s abrupt rise to fame. Like many moments of her highly publicized life, her diagnosis of psoriasis was captured on camera. Psoriasis is a chronic immune system disorder that appears as red, scaly patches on the skin.

Jessica Simpson

While Jessica Simpson has lived with eczema for most of her life, she experienced more extreme flare-ups after having her youngest daughter in 2019. After visiting her dermatologist, the starlet has gotten the condition under control with a two-pronged approach of red light therapy and topical medications. If you have it, too, visit our office for an individualized eczema treatment plan.

Winnie Harlow

Canadian fashion model and contestant on America’s Next Top Model, Winnie Harlow is a public spokesperson for vitiligo. In this autoimmune disorder, the immune system attacks melanocytes (which create darker skin pigment), leading to patches of white skin. Winnie was just four years old when she was diagnosed, and despite facing extreme bullying, she began modeling after being encouraged by a Toronto journalist

There’s no complete cure for this condition, but recognizing that the condition can affect emotional and psychological health, we offer effective vitiligo treatments like laser therapy to reduce the appearance of depigmentation.

Jada Pinkett Smith

You might recall the altercation between Will Smith and host Chris Rock during the 2022 Oscars. Jada Pinkett Smith, who was the butt of Rock’s tasteless joke about being bald, has since spoken out about her experience with alopecia. This type of hair loss can have several possible contributing factors, including hormone changes and autoimmune disorders. Oftentimes, hair grows back, but there are customized alopecia treatments available to address hair loss of many forms. 

Renée Zellweger

Actress Renée Zellweger reportedly suffers from rosacea, an inflammatory skin condition that causes skin redness and a rash. It tends to appear on the nose and cheeks, and can be triggered by factors such as emotional stress and hot weather. If your rosacea is interfering with your quality of life, allow us to develop a treatment plan to help you manage it.

Cindy Crawford

Model and actress Cindy Crawford is just one of popular culture’s most prominent names with a facial mole. Eva Mendes, Blake Lively, and of course, Marilyn Monroe have also become known for theirs. Despite being given the moniker of “beauty mark,” not every celebrity chooses to embrace their mole. In 2003, Latin singer Enrique Iglesias had his surgically removed, citing concerns about the potential for it to become cancerous. If you’d prefer to part ways with yours, our board-certified dermatologists can perform mole removal following an evaluation.

You don’t have to be a celebrity to want clear, irritation-free skin. Whether you have a chronic skin condition or you’re suffering from issues like blemishes, dryness, or signs of aging, our board-certified dermatologists can help.
