Kim Kardashian is being praised for showing her face during a psoriasis flare-up.
Kim Kardashian has been vocal in the past about her struggles with psoriasis. The skin condition often results in visible red patches on the affected person's body. While it can target a specific area of your skin, it can also be widespread, affecting your entire body. Kim has been often spoken about how she deals with the condition on her reality show, giving people tips on her social media. However, she rarely shows photos of her flare-ups. That changed yesterday when the media mogul posted a photo of her face make-up-free in the morning, clearly showing off the red blotches on her skin.

"Morning psoriasis," wrote Kardashian as her caption. The image was posted to her story for her millions of followers to see. She is being praised for showing her face with the markings, and considering she usually doesn't step out of the house without a full face of make-up, this is likely a huge deal for the reality TV star. The 38-year-old let everybody see her untouched visage before Kanye West's Sunday Service performance.
According to Page Six, Kardashian told fans that she was considering starting a medication to control her flare-ups. In the past, she has tried everything from UV light treatments to topical creams but nothing has seemed to get the condition under control.
