Discover the Treatment Kendall Jenner Used to Get Rid of Her Acne
Some would paint the Kardashian-Jenner sisters as the picture of perfection — sleek strands, curvaceous bodies, and glowing skin — but these women have flaws lurking under the surface, too. Most recently, Kendall Jenner admitted that she's been battling acne for years behind the scenes. Hard to believe, right? We've never seen pimples when she's strutting down the catwalk! It was only after getting Laser Genesis treatments from a dermatologist that Kendall got all cleared up.
"What I want everyone to understand is that it's been a process: It wasn't anything that happened overnight," she wrote in a blog post. "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."
Yes, even though Kendall is a supermodel teen, she still has the same worries other pubescent girls face. Acne changed the way she interacted with others. As devotees to Keeping Up With the Kardashians, we can remember Kendall's shy years pretty well (that was before her Estée Lauder contract and Chanel runway walks). "It completely ruined my self-esteem," she said. "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." Somehow we don't think Kendall would have trouble picking up a boyfriend with or without the pimples.
