Kardashian Sisters Who Struggled with Skin Concerns
Whether you love or hate them, we can all admit that the Kardashian-Jenner clan is one of the most influential families in Hollywood. They constantly set our trends in beauty, fashion, and lifestyle. But remember: the Kardashians are human, too. They often struggle with the same things we do, especially when it comes to skin health.
For instance, Kim, Khloé, and Kendall have all shared their skin concerns on the media. In a world filled with photoshopped supermodels (and Instagram models), it’s amazing that these Hollywood celebrities openly admitted their struggles with skin problems. They remind girls who struggle with psoriasis and acne that even the Kardashians are not always picture perfect.
In a couple of the “Keeping with the Kardashians” episode, Kim showed her skin condition–psoriasis–to the audience. Her psoriasis condition worsened after the infamous robbery in Paris. The trauma increased her stress levels, leading to further breakout on her skin. Earlier this year, she tweeted about how the psoriasis spread from her body to her face.
Wait why am I now getting psoriasis on my face ?

“I have moles everywhere, and a couple years ago, I noticed one growing under my breast. I immediately looked it up online and found out that if a mole is growing and changing shape, you should go to the doctor—so I did.”
Even though the mole turned out to be benign, she shared that there was a mole on her back that was skin cancer. She has since been a huge advocate of regular check ups with dermatologists.
In 2015, Kendall talked about her struggle with acne in her teenage years. Kendall tells Teen Vogue in an interview, “It wasn’t anything that happened overnight. 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.”
Her sister Kylie Jenner, even said in an interview, “I never had bad skin, but my sister had really really bad skin growing up. And the only thing that really helped her was to find a good dermatologist.”
