Keke Palmer is baring her skin and speaking up.
If you have actually ever battled with acne, the 27-year-old multihyphenate can definitely relate. The previous daytime talk program co-host required to social networks on Tuesday, Dec. 1 with an honest message to fans coupled with unfiltered selfies of her imperfections.
“Hey you guys, for some of you this may be TMI, but for me my platform has always been used for things much greater than me,” she composed in the caption. “Poly Cystic Ovarian syndrome has been attacking me from the inside out my entire life and I had no idea. My acne has been so bad that people in my field offered to pay for me to get it fixed.”
Despite attempting common services—Accutane, altering her diet plan, drinking water—Palmer had actually not had the ability to discover relief up until she took things into her own hands. “My blood tests were fine. But it took ME taking a personal look into my family that has a history of diabetes and obesity, to understand what was ACTUALLY happening with me,” she composed. “And unfortunately doctors are people and if you don’t ‘look the part’ they may not think that’s your problem. They may not even suggest it if you ‘look healthy’ whatever that means! I came to a doctor in tears once and all they offered was a measles vaccine… Exactly.”
