This Major Piece of Advice From Kim Kardashian West Is Not What We Expected

Elinor Block

Kim Kardashian West just gave us a seriously major piece of advice on body acceptance. The reality star has suffered from the skin condition psoriasis, which can leave sufferers with flaky, itchy skin and red blotches all over their bodies, since 2011. 

However, in a post on her blog, Kardashian West spoke about how she's come to accept this flaw. "I have that one patch on my right leg that is the most visible. 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?" 

Everyone can get on board with that kind of advice, no?

"I got it for the first time at the DASH store opening in New York. I wore this all-sequin dress and I started getting really itchy; I thought it was just a rash caused by the fabric, but then the rash was COVERING my legs and my mom was like, 'I think you have psoriasis!!!' She has it too, and it's hereditary, so she spotted the symptoms immediately."

However, while she's become more accepting of the condition, she did reveal that she still applies cortisone cream every night and is still hoping that science will come through with a cure. 

"Scientists are constantly researching and developing new medications to help treat it, but for now, I use a topical cortisone ointment every night before bed. 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.” 

Amen, Kim.
