Kim Kardashian has access to the best dermatologists, aestheticians, beauty treatments, her own cosmetics line, and Photoshop retouching wizards in the world. The woman presents herself to the world with complete control over how she will be photographed. But a new Kim Kardashian makeup-free photo is making the rounds, because we rarely see her looking so naturally radiant and normal — she even has blemishes, like every human on the planet.
Kim has a blemish (GASP!!!!)/is a human being!
There's something refreshing in knowing that, for all of Kardashian's money and access, she still gets the occasional blemish. It's a totally normal, natural phenomenon that occurs because human beings have skin. When you're feeling bummed about your monster zit, just remember that even Kardashian gets 'em, too.
She skipped the makeup for a casual date night.
Kardashian and her makeup-free face were spotted out with hubby Kanye West in Santa Monica, CA, reports Page Six. The power couple had dinner at the Bungalow, and Kardashian wore simple sweats, proving that it is totally OK to take a night off from glam.
If you're obsessed with West's sweatshirt, here are the details!
That blemish may be a flare-up of psoriasis.
Kardashian also suffers from psoriasis, a skin condition characterized by scaly, itchy skin lesions and rashes, explains the American Academy of Dermatology. She's been open about dealing with the chronic condition and has posted photos of her lesions in an effort to raise awareness. It's possible that the blemish on her face is just run-of-the mill acne, or it could be a flare-up of psoriasis.
