It is hard to be a model and Kendall sure does know that. While the young Jenner has always received praise for her flawless skin and amazing fashion sense, she was slammed for having acne on her face while she attended the Golden Globe Awards.
There is no doubt that Kendall was able to make an impression on people as she walked on the red carpet wearing a strapless tulle dress but cruel trolls were more focused on something else. Many people were quick to point out that Kendall's face was covered with acne.
Some people commented how the model looked bad while other suggested that Kendall's efforts of hiding the acne with makeup were a failed attempt. While there were many out there pointing fingers at the Victoria's Secret model, Kendall's fans were quick to come forward in support of her.
One of her fans wrote how it was completely normal to have acne and there was no need to make a big deal about it. “You’re really out here talking s**t about her skin? You’re out here making fun of something that is a completely normal thing for everyone to go through? Grow up. Acne or not, she’s gorgeous," the comment read.
While another called out the trolls for being insensitive and for poking fun at something that was very common among people. “Seriously guys...You think it's smart to make fun of Kendall just because she has bad skin tonight?” another tweet read.
Another fan was quick to ask people to be understanding towards the problems that are faced by people. “Y’all need to stop making fun of Kendall’s face. I get Y'all have clear skin but a lot of us suffer from acne and it’s embarrassing enough and to have someone point it out…” read the comment.
Previously, Kendall had opened up about how acne was one of the biggest problems that she faced while growing up. According to the model, it was also the reason she was insecure throughout her teenage years. Her level of confidence dropped so much that she even found it hard to talk to people.
"Where it really impacted me was how self-conscious I became about it," Kendall said. "It completely ruined my self-esteem then. 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."
Even in an interview with Allure, Kendall mentioned how her confidence kept dropping due to this. "It was not a good time for me—it just killed my self-esteem," Kendall said at the time. "I thought when I didn't look at someone, they couldn't see my face."
Kendall admitted that she had crushes while growing up but decided not to talk to them thinking they would make fun of her after looking at her face. She was on a rollercoaster ride of emotions but admitted that talking to her family about her struggles helped her a lot.
The reality star went on to explain how it took a while for her to gain the confidence that she had once lost. "What I want everyone to understand is that it's been a process: It wasn't anything that happened overnight," she wrote. "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."
There are still times when Kendall feels conscious when she gets one zit on her face but the model admitted that she is trying her best to get over it. "I'm working towards not caring and I'm just in so much of a better place about it all now that I'm older," Kendall wrote.
"I realized that it's a part of life for some people and it doesn't define who you are," she concluded. One of the ways through which Kendall was able to fight her acne was after she found an "incredible dermatologist" to help clear everything up.
Now Kendall relies on Laser Genesis to help keep breakouts at bay and also credits her sisters with helping her get through what she considers a difficult phase in her life. Looking back at the Golden Globe Awards picture of how confident Kendall looked despite her acne problem, we sure think that she has come a long way.
