Keke Palmer’s unfiltered selfies will make you’re feeling much less alone with zits
Keke Palmer bares her skin and speaks.
If you’ve ever struggled with acne, the 27 year old multihyphenate can certainly relate. The former co-host of the talk show on the day took to social media on Tuesday, December 1st with an open message to fans, coupled with unfiltered selfies of her blemishes.
“Hey guys, for some of you this may be TMI, but for me my platform has always been used for things much bigger than me,” she wrote in the headline. “Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome has been attacking me from the inside all my life, and I had no idea. My acne was so bad that people in my field offered to pay for me to fix it.”
Though Palmer had tried typical solutions – Accutane, diet, drinking water – she had found no relief until she had taken matters into her own hands. “My blood tests were fine. But I needed to take a personal look at my family, who have a history of diabetes and obesity, to understand what actually happened to me,” she wrote. “And unfortunately, doctors are human, and if you don’t look like that, they may not think this is your problem. You may not even suggest it if you look healthy, whatever that means! I’m once and in tears came to a doctor All they offered was a measles vaccine … Exactly. “
