Kendall Jenner Also Used to Have Problems With Acne

It can be really hard to struggle with bad acne. It can undermine anyone’s self-esteem, leaving deep scars both in the body and soul. In nowadays’ society, we are more likely to think that our beloved celebrities are free from suffering from such conditions, as we always see them striking their best poses and their flawless skins in the most glamorous magazines. Reality, however, couldn’t be far from the truth.

Kendall Jenner Acne Problems

There is a long list of celebrities, who battled (some still do) with bad acne, the latest of which is supermodel and Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ cast member Kendall Jenner. She may now be Estee Lauder’s new face and one of the most photographed models in the world, but not that while ago (it all started when she was in her 8th grade) the 19-year-old young woman wasn’t that proud of her skin. It was so bad she couldn’t even make eye contact with people.

Kendall Jenner bravely opened up about her bad skin condition in a touching and honest post, where she also celebrates her sisters’ pieces of advice and unconditional support during those long and depressing years. However, although the young model could rely on a good beauty regime, an even better dermatologist (who introduced her to a skin therapy called Laser Genesis) and her family’s support, such scars have physically but not emotionally healed, leaving Kendall with some deep self-esteem problems.

“It completely ruined my self-esteem. I wouldn’t even look at people when I talked to them. I felt like such an outcast; when I spoke, it was with my hand covering my face. Sure, I had crushes in high school, but I wouldn’t even think about looking at guys. […]”Even after things started to clear up, it took a solid amount of time to be okay with my skin and gain back my confidence. I realized that it’s a part of life for some people, and it doesn’t define who you are.”

It is indeed a moving post, which reveals the human’s fragile nature. Moreover, Kendall Jenner’s sincere post shows us that it can literally happen to anyone of us, but that it shouldn’t stop us from pursuing our dreams. We are not superhuman and, to quote Kendall, acne “doesn’t define who we are.”

Kendall Jenner is just another celebrity, who found the courage to open up about (what is inexplicably regarded as) such a frightening condition, but the list could go on including Emma Stone (who recently said she “had bad hormonal acne when I was 17, and they put me on Accutane for it. Then, I had stress acne when I was 20, when I did Easy A, which they kindly video-airbrushed out of the movie”), and award-winning Keira Knightely (who opened up about dealing with acne on Vogue Australia: “I’m incredibly self-conscious about the fact that I get bad skin”).

Even some famous Youtubers shared their acne experience with their fans in really touching videos, the most famous of which is probably Cassandra Bankson’s coverage routine video, which gives its viewers some really precious tips and confidence.
