Britney Spears Gets Bad Skin Dermatology Oscar

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Britney Spears had a lot of over exposure this year – including over exposure to the sun.

That’s the skinny from San Francisco-based dermatologist Dr. Vail Reese, who says Spears got so much sun during 2006, that she deserves a “dermatology Oscar.”

To that end, Reese has just awarded Spears one of his annual “Skinnies Awards” for having bad skin due to over- tanning, a habit Reese says leads to skin cancer and melanoma.

Other winners that received Skinnies from Reese this year include Seal, who won “Proudest Pocked Pitchman,” for not being self-conscious about his scarred skin condition.

  • The Ancient Mayans depicted in Mel Gibson’s flick Apocalypto get “Skinnies” for being the “Most Tattoed and Pierced Social Group.”

  • Brittany Murphy wins a “Skinnie” for her “Surprisingly Lush Lips,” which Reese speculates are the result of too much cosmetic surgery.

    However, Reese has praise for fair-skinned starlets like Rachel McAdams, Scarlett Johansson and Keira Knightley, who he says “actually take care of their skin.”
