Kendall Jenner recites a positive mantra to herself every morning when she suffers an acne breakout.
The model became the face of skincare brand Proactiv last year, and at the time, revealed she has been battling the skin condition since her early teens.
In a new interview with Teen Vogue, she opened up about how she’s finally got her acne under control, and when she wakes up to a breakout on her face, she tries to stay positive.
“If you’re really just having a day where your skin is just not looking great for you, I do this thing every morning where I say five positive words about myself that have nothing to do with anybody else,” Kendall commented. “That always makes me feel better. Sometimes you just have to look at yourself in the mirror and talk to yourself as corny as it sounds, it really does lift you up.”
The 24-year-old also said she ignores her acne, and tries to not focus her energy on worrying about how she looks.
“I know I found myself on days where I had pretty bad flare-ups, I would kind of just try and forget about it, and almost act as if it wasn’t there. Even though, obviously, I knew it was, and everyone around me knew it was,” the model explained. “If you just put that energy into it, it ends up being not much of a thing. But when you’re self-conscious about it, then everyone starts looking.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Kendall shared how since her acne confession, she’s built up a supportive community around her, who can share the daily ups and downs of living with the skin condition.
“Everyone else that struggles, we can all connect on it, and share tips, and secrets, and tricks, and all those things,” she stated.
