Over the years, Kim Kardashian has become an iconic figure in many arenas: entrepreneurship, motherhood, beauty, and even social justice. With the release of her skin-care brand, SKKN, the mom-of-four has also become an icon for glowing skin. But, just this week, the 42-year-old revealed that her beauty journey has not been bump-free, as she opened up about her struggles with adult acne.
Kim Kardashian On Her Recurring Acne In Her 40s
In an interview with Refinery29 this week, Kardashian got candid about the fact that her radiant skin on social media and on screen has not always been the result of clear, healthy skin, but rather that her recurring acne has made her quite good at concealing. “Oh, I’ve gotten full acne, like full bouts of it,” she began, “It’s [concealed] really well under makeup. But I’ve documented it. I think if people saw it they’d be really shocked to know that I had that experience.”
The star then went on to explain how the late-onset acne had her questioning her skin-care routine and, like many of us, struggling to find a solution. “I’m like, ‘should I stop using oils if I have acne?’ Then realizing, no, to stop using oil hasn’t been helpful,” she explained. “It could be hormonal or a change in supplements. Every time I change the way that I eat or try different foods, I guess my skin has gotten really sensitive. It’s been really interesting to try new products and figure out what works for different skin that I never thought I would experience in my 40s.”
