On Sunday night, the world watched as countless celebrities donned their Sunday Best to celebrate a night of extraordinary, film and television. The Golden Globes was the kickoff to award season, and for many viewers, it was our time to see our favorite celebrities completely slay on the red carpet.
Supermodel and reality tv princess Kendall Jenner totally came through and as a professional model, her photos were effortlessly flawless.
Despite serving us all with her look, commentators criticized Jenner for what appeared to be an acne outbreak on her cheeks.
While internet trolls were doing what they do, one fan tweeted out to Jenner that in spite of her acne, she was still totally killing it on the red carpet.
Jenner, who has made it no secret that she struggles with acne, took the time to shut down the haters and responded to the tweet.
Jenner is just one among a slew of celebrities who openly admitted to their struggles with acne and being privy to the critique and harsh reactions from the public. Katy Perry and Alicia Keys have both been ambassadors for Proactiv, a popular skincare brand designed to combat acne, while celebs like Bella Thorne, Paris Jackson, Lucy Hale and Lorde have spoken out openly about their struggles with acne recently.
Good morning! #mynaturalbeauty I know us girls love to put on makeup, not only for fun but sometimes to hide our insecurities…well, here is a photo of me without ANY makeup on my face. I took this photo while arriving to set this morning. Personally, I struggled with acne for a long time. I used to cry every night because I thought I looked so ugly. I used to read comments about my face, my skin, my nose, my eyes, and even my beauty marks people didn't approve of. Putting makeup over acne makes it so much worse. I know lots of my friends also struggle with acne and it's something you can't control. I know lots of people think others with acne are " dirty" or "don't take care of themselves". That is false. My question to you is: Why should we be judged? Use #mynatrualbeauty & lets inspire every girl to be proud of what they look like and who they are. I love you guys. Oh and ps…If you don't accept me for my insecurities please get off my page 🙂 #mynaturalbeauty
Having acne is definitely nothing new and with more than 2.8 million people suffering from it a year, it’s good to see celebrities stepping out and speaking out against the hecklers and not letting it stop them from living.
