Kendell Jenner was freaked out about high school acne
Kendall Jenner suffered from really bad acne when she was younger and it really affected her self-confidence.
Kendall shared some memories on her web site:
I had such bad acne when I was younger; I remember it SO well!’ she shared. ‘I started having skin issues around the 8th or 9th grade.’
‘I think I just got acne from being a teenager and simply growing up, which happens to SO many people,’ she said. ‘But, where it really impacted me was how self-conscious I became about it. It completely ruined my self-esteem.
‘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 though she found it very challenging at the time, Jenner didn’t let the acne hold her back and she went on to achieve great things.
