Kendall Jenner has described her acne as "debilitating" as she revealed she used to run home in tears because people stared at her skin.
The supermodel took part in the 10-year challenge as she shared pictures of herself as a 13 year old.
The images show how bad her acne was.
She said: "i was 13 and ran home crying everyday because people would stare at my skin"
Now filled with confidence, she posed up make-up free as she opened up about her problems with her skin in a lengthy statement.
But following backlash when she first detailed her skin issue in a "raw and personal announcement", she disabled comments on the post so no one could leave their thoughts – positive or negative.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, 23, took to Instagram to share a stunning make-up free picture of herself.
In the black and white snap, Kendall lounges in her pyjamas with a towel tied around her head.
She said: "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. 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.
"Being insecure about my acne gave me thick skin but I wouldn’t ever wish that feeling upon anyone so after trying countless options, I found something that has been helpful in maintaining clear skin for me.
"It’s been a long journey but I’m excited for where my skin is now. 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."
Kendall received some backlash from fans when she revealed that she was the new face of Proactiv skincare.
Her momager Kris Jenner had caused a social media meltdown by telling her followers to keep their eyes peeled on Kendall’s Twitter for an upcoming "raw and personal announcement".
And people couldn’t believe it when they found out what the big reveal was.
It’s believed the contract is worth millions of dollars.
