Seal’s Discoid Lupus is currently in remission but still carries the scars that Discoid Lupus often leaves. Typically, people treat Discoid Lupus with steroids or topical creams that help reduce inflammation.
Bad ass celebrity woman, comedian, actress and writer Mindy Kaling, I could definitely relate to this celebrity! Mindy Kaling to be starring as Amita in Ocean’s 8, battles with oily skin!

Part of a celebrities’ job is to look perfect, even so, they are only human and cannot escape some of the everyday conditions that affect your everyday Joe.
