Cameron Diaz is one of many Hollywood stars whose skin is plagued by acne. Acne can occur when too much oil on the face builds up and clogs pores, resulting in pimples that can be tough to hide. A good skin care routine can help to care for bad skin, and to get acne under control, a dermatologist can prescribe topical treatments, antibiotics, and even certain types of birth control pills to prompt celebrity skin (and yours, too) to clear up.
