The most lovable funny girl in Hollywood has been in the spotlight for over 20 years starring in blockbuster movies and dominating the box office. It wasn’t until she released her book, The Body Book in 2015 that she came clean about something that so many of us deal with… cystic acne.
She recounts dealing with painful cystic acne throughout her teenage and twenty-something years. She attributes the relentless breakouts to a junky diet filled with sugary processed foods and dairy. “If you are what you eat, I was a bean burrito with extra cheese and extra sauce,” she quips in the book and claims her skin cleared up after she began eating healthier and taking better care of her skin with a daily routine of cleansing twice a day religiously.
For years she portrayed the modern woman on Sex and the City as a full time working single mother. Deep down, she was always insecure struggling with Rosacea. Over 16 million Americans struggle with rosacea and even the Hollywood elite aren’t an exception.
In an interview, Nixon admits “Up until five years ago, I had no idea why my skin would get so red…I thought it was just because of my fair complexion. The problem was, it never really went away until I really learned the kind of products and ingredients I should be using” she says. Nixon worked with a dermatologist to identify several triggers that caused the red rosacea, like sun exposure, spicy foods and red wine and started using products with natural ingredients to reduce flare ups.
