Xpose presenter Lisa Cannon opens up about developing adult acne
GLAMOROUS presenter Lisa Cannon has spoken frankly about the skin condition.
The Dubliner recently began experiencing symptoms of the irritable skin condition which she admits has knocked her confidence.
Looking good is important to all women, but as a presenter on Irish TV's most popular fashion show Xpose, Lisa is always under pressure to look her best.
"I've started to get a bout of adult acne in the last six weeks," the brunette presenter told Woman's Way magazine.
"I'm really suffering quite badly, it's been horrendous.
"It's really knocked my confidence because I don't know where it's come from," she said.
The stylish and curvaceous host says that the condition, which can be brought on by stress, has even affected her ability to apply make-up.
"It can knock you sideways; you can't put your make-up on because you're on medicated creams, antibiotics, so you're not always on top of everything, I certainly don't feel that I am."
"You always have things that kick you in the stomach," Lisa said.
It's not the only area causing Lisa trouble at the moment. She has revealed she has to get braces.
"I cracked my tooth last week, and have to get train track braces fitted," the busy presenter said.
"All these things that happen to your body as you get older, you think, 'Oh God'".
One area that is going well for the presenter, though, is her relationship with rugby player boyfriend Richard Keatley.
Lisa admits she was reluctant at first as she had just come out of a long-term relationship.
The presenter, who lost her mum to cancer in 2008, met Richard in a pub in Blackrock in Dublin over two years ago.
"We met so soon after I split up with my previous boyfriend, I was worried if it was too soon," Lisa said.
"But I was so glad I took the chance on him."
