Kim Kardashian Got Brutally Honest About Why She Embraces Her Psoriasis

by Robert Anthony

It's official: Kim Kardashian has her own flaws.

Despite the fact that we might have already known that, the 35-year-old star is opening up about suffering from the skin disorder psoriasis.

Psoriasis is a medically-diagnosed skin condition that creates itchy, dry patches around your body from skin cell build-up.


During flare-ups, these dry patches can be seen on Kim Kardashian's skin -- and now she's opening up about how she's learned to accept her "big flaw."

Everyone with psoriasis has different symptoms; sometimes the rashes are itchy, sometimes they're flaky. Mine flares up from time to time for different reasons.

Kim took to her official app and website to reveal how she deals with her condition, saying,

I don't even really try to cover it that much anymore. Sometimes I just feel like it's my big flaw and everyone knows about it, so why cover it?

That's the spirit, Kim! Embrace your flaws, we all have them in many different forms.

Another form of motivation that might be helping Kim cope with her condition is the fact that Kris Jenner also suffers from psoriasis.

According to Daily Mail, Kim inherited the skin condition from her mother after being diagnosed back in 2010.

Since then, Kim has been pretty open about how psoriasis has affected her life -- even on episodes of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians."


If you know anything about psoriasis, you know that there is no cure for it, but there are many different treatments to help patients cope with it.

Kim Kardashian's trusty treatment technique includes applying cortisone cream on the affected areas.

She continued,

I'm always hoping for a cure, of course, but in the meantime, I'm learning to just accept it as part of who I am.

You know what, Kim, I'm sorry for bashing you for staring longingly at Beyoncé and wishing that you could be her after the VMAs this year.

Not many people are willing to open up to the world about their real-life struggles like you are. And still, even with your flaws, you embrace every part of yourself.

That's truly inspiring.
