Kendall Jenner may be one of the biggest models out there right now, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have any insecurities and or feelings that get hurt when trolls are hella rude. Just last month, Kendall opened up about how having had acne since she was a teenager has impacted her, saying it makes her feel ‘anxious, helpless and insecure.’ And now, she says that acne — along with the haters — has made her cry for days.
Kendall told Allure, ‘I’ve always struggled with a bit of acne since I was around 14. It killed a lot of self-esteem and I had to really work past that.’ She also said people tend to have a really sh*tty habit of pointing out when she has a pimple, as if she doesn’t know already.
She remembered the time she was breaking out at the Golden Globes, saying, ‘I was feeling good about myself, and then when people say mean things I’m like, “I know I have a zit. I know I’m breaking out. You guys don’t have to keep pointing it out. I obviously see that, but let me live.”‘ Seriously, is there anything worse than when you’re tired or something and people say, ‘Wow, you look tired’? So rude.

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. ❤️
Understandably, everything adds up to Kenny feeling awful. She admitted, ‘I have cried endlessly for days because of things people have said to me, and I’ve had to become stronger through it. I mean, don’t get me wrong: I am not superhuman. I definitely feel, and the things people say online are very hurtful.’
Luckily, Kendall has found a skincare routine that’s working for her. She’s also learned to tune out the hate, but hopefully people will stop coming for her when she didn’t send for them.
