Model and reality TV star Kendall Jenner is on the cover of Allure magazine’s March 2019 issue.
The 23-year-old model spoke to the magazine about some of her beauty secrets, dealing with acne and also dealing with mean things said about her online.
Read excerpts below.
On the hate she received over her acne at the Golden Globes: “I mean, it’s something that I look at myself in the mirror every day and see. Like, I don’t want it there, but you have to deal with what you have right in front of you, and I had to deal with it, and it was probably a once in a lifetime thing for me to go to the Golden Globes (in 2018). I don’t know if I’ll ever go again, ’cause that’s not usually my event to go to, you know? And so I went and I was super excited about it, and I’m not gonna let something so little (and big) as acne stop me. I was feeling good about myself, and then when people say mean things I’m like, “I know I have a zit. I know I’m breaking out. You guys don’t have to keep pointing it out. I obviously see that, but let me live.”
On reading mean things online: “I have cried endlessly for days because of things people have said to me, and I’ve had to become stronger through it. I mean, don’t get me wrong: I am not superhuman. I definitely feel, and the things people say online are very hurtful. You also just have to live your life and not pay attention to it. I think it can get pretty unhealthy if you really are deep in it and paying attention to it all the time. I think that that’s what can really mess you up.”
On which sister has the best skincare routine: “I honestly might need to take credit for this one, only because they haven’t really struggled with breakouts. Khloe did a little bit when she was really young, and then Rob a bit when he was really young but he’s not my sister (laughs). They all have beautiful skin. So I will talk myself up and say that I might be the [skin-care] master in the family.”
