“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.”

She went on to say, “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.”

Jenner recently became ProactivMD‘s newest ambassador, in her promotional video for the brand, the KUWTK star opens up about how negative comments overshadowed her confidence at an award show.”I felt so good I completely forgot that I had bad skin.”

The 23-year-old model says, “My goal is to open up a dialogue around skin positivity.”
