Amy Adams. Photo by Steve Granitz/WireImageGET THE LOOK: Beautiful skin like Amy Adams's starts with a few simple lifestyle changes, says Dallas-based dermatologist, Dr. Allison Singer. "Always wash your face before bed and avoid high-sugar foods," she says. "Recent studies suggest increased insulin levels can increase oil gland activity."
INSIDER TRICK: If a pimple pops up before a big event, Dr. Singer says, "A cortisone injection given by a dermatologist directly into the blemish will make it go away in about 24 to 48 hours. Also, a combination of benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin cream used on the spot is a great zit zapper."
