Kendall Jenner is no stranger to the occasional acne flare: The Model and Keeping Up With Kardashians is the star Having long been open to problems with the skin and the associated shame (Last year, trolls tried to bring them down by accenting their barely visible acne in the Golden Globe, and she had an immediate reaction.)
Earlier this month Jenner was announced again when she announced this The Proactiv's New Face. Her mother, Kris Jenner, teased the fans with a video in which she said that Kendall would soon be opening up on her "roughest story" ̵

In her defense, on Thursday Kendall recorded her Instagram stories to take part in the 10-year challenge and share photos of herself as a teenager with bumps that covered her face. "I was 13 years old and was crying home every day because people were staring at my skin," she wrote.
To further her point of view, she shared a separate lengthy post on her side, revealing how difficult it was to live with acne and that was really a big deal for her.
"Although there are much bigger problems in the world, suffering from acne was a weakness for me," she wrote next to a make-up-free photo of herself "It's something I'm concerned with I've been busy since my youth, and I've become anxious, helpless and insecure.

Jenner wrote that, in her opinion, it's important to share her insecurities with the world, especially with so many impressive young women too you look up. " As humans, I do not believe that we share our insecurities enough because we live in a time when" perfect "is the standard," she wrote. "We're curating our lives online and picking the pretty moments to post I want to show a younger generation that not everything is perfect."
All the acne shaming has given her strength, she continued, but she does not. I do not want others to go through what she did. "I would never want that feeling for anyone, so I've found something after countless possibilities that has helped me keep clear skin for myself," she wrote in reference to Proactiv. "It has been a long journey, but I am looking forward to where my skin is now, I do not think I would live the day I am sure to post a make-up image, my goal is To initiate a dialogue skin-positive.

To avoid further setbacks, Jenner disables the paid posts and hopes to leave the whole situation behind.
Controversial Controversy: If you're struggling with outbreaks (like the many adults who nowadays have acne), it can be hard to be confident in the face of the majority of the media that perfect skin is not only available, but expected. Jenner's message reminds that outbreaks should not affect your self-esteem.
