Kendall Jenner has opened up to Allure about her self-esteem issues surrounding her acne and skincare routine since she was 14-years-old.

She only revealed to the world last month that she is a long-time sufferer of the skin condition which plagues mainly young teens around the world.

Taking to Instagram back in January, she wrote to her fans; "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."

She continued; "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."

Jenner's goal is to create a conversation surrounding image and insecurity; "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.

Now, she has stated that the online haters as well as her acne has made her cry for days in the past. We've all had a bit of a sob when a massive spot surfaces on the exact day you have an important event on, it's so cruel.

She revealed more about her young life to 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 is also a person who detests when her pimples are pointed out to her, as we all are.

A break-out at the Golden Globes caused her endless stress, 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.'"

Those people are legit the worst. Rude, much?

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."

We're happy for her that she's found a great skincare routine that works for her, and is starting the conversation. Young women are under such pressure to look picture perfect 24 hours a day.

Vicky Pattison might be well known for her ballsy on-screen persona, but the Queen of the Jungle revealed today that, just like everyone else, she can be her own worst critic.

According to Celebs Now, the former Geordie Shore cast member burst into tears as she shared with the Loose Women panel her battles with self-scutiny.

As part of this afternoon's show, Vicky had to listen back to a pre-recorded clip of herself as she voiced some of the negative thoughts she has about herself and, understandably, the experience was an emotional one for the reality star.

Vicky was reduced to tears as she heard herself saying: “What are you doing here?  You’re not as good as everyone else.”

The tape also revealed how the Newcastle native compares herself to other women and tells herself she’s doomed to fail.

She said: “Look at them – everyone’s so clever and glamorous.”

“They’re thinking, ‘Who are you, what are you doing here?’”

“Just make it easier and go now.  You’re gonna fail and everyone’s gonna laugh.”

Vicky went on to explain that she experiences such negative thoughts every day and admitted she tries hard to act like people’s comments don’t affect her but in reality they do.

She also confessed that her insecurities are only made worse by the comments she receives on social media.

She said: “People tear strips off the way you look, which is never nice. I get everything – people say I don’t deserve to be where I am because of my past.”


Since the show aired, Vicky has received a stream of online support with women admitting they love and admire her and encouraging her not to give in to the negativity which at times surrounds her.

The Geordie thanked her fans by tweeting: "So overwhelmed by all your amazing support and messages after my appearance on this afternoon's @loosewomen.. It was a tough one for me!"
