Kim Kardashian shared her makeup-free 'psoriasis face' and she's receiving so much praise
Kim Kardashian is many things - reality television star extraordinaire, businesswoman, and a purveyor of the "beflie" - one thing she's not, though, is a fan of the "natural" look.
That looks set to change, given that the 38-year-old just took to social media to share a glimpse of her makeup-free "psoriasis face" with her 130 million Instagram followers.
Kim has been increasingly open about her experiences with the skin condition, which can cause red, flaky patches of skin. And when the Daily Mail shared close-ups of her face and the visible bumps on it, she refused to be silenced.
In the tweet, which was posted last month, the publication said that the mother-of-three was having a "bad skin day".
"It's no wonder the 38-year-old KKW Beauty CEO occasionally suffers a spot of bother with all the foundation and concealer she wears regularly," they continued.
"It’s psoriasis all over my face," Kim replied, less than 10 minutes after the tweet was published. She added a crying emoji.
Kim has spoken about her skin condition as far back as 2011, on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. While she said that most of the symptoms were on her legs, she tweeted about it spreading to her face in 2017.
In 2016, she asserted that she wouldn't be hiding her psoriasis anymore. "Sometimes I just feel like it’s my big flaw and everyone knows about it, so why cover it?" she said. "I'm always hoping for a cure, of course, but in the meantime, I’m learning to just accept it as part of who I am."
And she's certainly stayed true to her word. Yesterday, Kim took to her Instagram Stories to show a flare-up on her face...
Good on you, Kim!
In related news, Kim and and her rapper husband, Kanye West, are purportedly expecting a fourth child via surrogate. The baby will join 11-month-old Chicago - who was also born via surrogate - three-year-old Saint, and five-year-old North.
While Kim has repeatedly spoken about how much she loves being a mother, back in August, a Keeping Up with the Kardashians source told the publication that the reality star wasn't "in a huge rush" to have a fourth child.
"They have absolutely talked about trying for another baby with the help of a surrogate, but nothing seems decided for sure," alleged the insider, before pointing out "Chicago is still little, and they have time."
In the past, Kim has said that she's open to having a fourth child, but that it's a decision that she and Kanye will make privately. "My home and my heart feel really full right now, in the best way," she said, before asserting that a fourth baby would definitely be the last. "I don't think I could handle more than that. My time is spread really thin. And I think it's important that in all couples, the mum gives the husband as much attention as the kids."
