  • And she's not the first Kardashian-Jenner to voice her skin complaints this year...

    The Kardashian-Jenners’ image is perfection, from flawless skin to unrealistic hourglass figures, but this year, they seem to have been showing a more relatable side.

    Yes, when it comes to skin complaints, even the Kardashian-Jenners aren’t immune.

    Kendall Jenner has been very open about her struggle with acne and the skin shaming that comes along with it, criticised at last year’s Golden Globes for her acne, something she explained as difficult when growing up as a Kardashian.

    While there are much bigger problems happening in the world, suffering from acne for me was debilitating. It’s something that I’ve dealt with since I was a young teen and has caused me to feel anxious, helpless and insecure. As humans, I don’t think we share our insecurities enough because we live in a time where being “perfect” is the standard. We curate our life online and pick the pretty moments to post. I’d like to show a younger generation that not everything is perfect. Being insecure about my acne gave me thick skin but I wouldn’t ever wish that feeling upon anyone so after trying countless options, I found something that has been helpful in maintaining clear skin for me. It’s been a long journey but I’m excited for where my skin is now. I didn’t think I’d see the day where I would feel confident posting a makeup free picture. My goal is to open up a dialogue around skin positivity. ❤️

    ‘That was also kind of a tough thing for me,’ she explained. ‘To look at my beautiful sisters with beautiful skin and be like, ‘Okay, well, why me? What’s wrong with me?”’

    Older sister Kim however has posted an honest photo of herself this week on her Insta Stories, bringing attention to her psoriasis, a skin condition that causes red, flaky patches of skin.

    Uploading two photos to her Insta Stories this week, Kim showed her psoriasis flare up.

    But it’s not the first time the 38-year-old has opened up about the skin condition, with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star announcing in 2016 that she wasn’t going to hide her condition anymore.

    ‘Sometimes I just feel like it’s my big flaw and everyone knows about it, so why cover it?’ She explained. ‘I’m always hoping for a cure, of course, but in the meantime, I’m learning to just accept it as part of who I am.’

    Yes, Kim.
