Diane Kruger opens up about battle with Rosacea

15 May 2015

Looking at her flawless complexion now, you’d never believe that Diana Kruger suffered from Rosacea. The star spoke about overcoming the skin condition and how she achieves perfect skin.

She said: “I wasn’t blessed with great skin. I used to have rosacea and had to quit smoking to get rid of it.”

It’s not known what exactly causes Rosacea but there are certain triggers, including smoking, too much sun exposure and alcohol.

“I still struggle with undereye circles,” admitted Diane. She’s found that her skin looks a lot healthier when she doesn’t drink alcohol, and so tries to avoid wine before big events.

“It did wonders for me. It kind of sucked though because I enjoy a glass of wine.”

So what else does she do to keep her skin looking smooth and clear? Diane is obsessed with moisturiser, opting for thick, rich formulas for deeper penetration. She also swears by sunscreen, saying “I started to get brown spots when I first moved to LA, and coming from Europe I wasn’t so accustomed to the sun. Now I wear SPF 50 or 60 even when it rains!”

Her main beauty mantra though, is confidence. She concluded: “You can be the most beautiful women in the world and still find something that bugs you. I’ve learned how to highlight the things I like and hide the things I don’t.”
