Kim Kardashian Reveals Psoriasis on Her Face in a Morning Selfie

Kim Kardashian is opening up about her ongoing battle with psoriasis.

The 38-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians reality television star shared a selfie on her Instagram Story on Sunday morning (March 17).

“Morning psoriasis,” she captioned the picture in bed, showing several red patches across her face.

Kim first opened up about her diagnosis all the way back in 2011, and has updated fans over the years about her condition as it has gotten better and worsened.

She also shared a selfie in February showcasing an herbal ointment she was wearing on the flare-ups on her face.

Psoriasis, which has no cure, causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin, forming scales and red patches that are itchy and sometimes painful.

    I’m sure the 50 layers of makeup she wears everyday don’t help.

    this is THE ONLY thing i feel sorry about for her. it sux to have this. i have it too, during cold months especially. it’s not fun. it comes and goes though. makeup actually doesn’t make it better, but it doesn’t make it worse either, i was shocked to learn that, too. lots of makeup is fine to wear as long as it’s clean makeup lines like clinique and bareminerals and stuff

    Maybe if she stopped crapping on her face with all the chemicals just to cover this up they wouldn’t be flaring up like that.

    Problem is she’s insecure about her flaws.

    Putting makeup has nothing to do with that. I suffer from psoriasis as well and I don’t put on any makeup, and it still gets worse.

    For anyone here suffering. First of all, a lot of times on the face, it’s rosacea.

    Generally, psoriasis and rosacea are both related to your liver. You may have liver damage somehow. Sometimes it’s from alcohol. Other times, people take too many meds like aspirin and Motrin. Young girls often take meds for their menstrual cramps and don’t realize what it does to their liver.

    I’d get liver function tests done from the doctor.

    Another problem caused by medicines, etc is Leaky Gut. Look it up. If you took too many meds, you can damage your stomach lining. You damage that and harmful things leak into your bloodstream.

    Number one thing to try for the liver is MILK THISTLE. It has to be certain strength. Just do your research. It can heal your liver and clear up your skin.

    If your stomach lining was damaged, you can get an overgrowth of yeast in your system and tissues called Candida Albicans. This is not easy to rid yourself of. It causes problems like toenail fungus, food sensitivities, tiredness, sugar cravings, brain fog etc. You should not just trust the doctors. You have to be educated about your own body. Doctors usually won’t tell you this stuff and will put you on more meds and never get to the ROOT of the problem.

    True. It’s an internal problem. Try Milk Thistle. Your liver is probably compromised somehow.

    WOW, thank u for sharing

    The liver is a filtering organ. It wouldn’t be the cause of psoriasis but always helpful to keep the body running as good as possible.
    I’d heard of milk thistle and tried it just as a detox thing. I eat well, exercise, have no major vices, etc. I tested it one day and became very weepy. I wasn’t sure if it was why or not and so I tested it the same day of the next week and the very same thing happened.
    Natural treatments are great but not cure all and affect some people differently than others.

    These types of skin issues are usually about the body’s overactive immune system. Keeping the organs in check is great and the liver is a filtering one. Even small children can have psoriasis and they usually don’t already have any real liver issues. I do agree with you that natural remedies are great. They should be well thought out and in conjunction with medical treatment. Doctors cannot usually advocate these things legally.

    Quality makeup is always a plus for wearers whether or not someone has any medical skin condition. Some of it has ingredients that are actually good for the skin. Staying hydrated and calming nerves is also a plus. Another reason to meditate.

    Maybe Kim should try these remedies, they worked great for me! https://www.wellordie.com/care/top-home-remedies-for-psoriasis-that-actually-work/

  • cuzjcacjo

    absolutely! everyone should be wearing clean makeup lines. and getting rid of stress does help

  • YaThink

    That’s true. Thanks.

    I always wondered why docs don’t do that. However, I also know from personal experience that they often keep you coming back for meds, etc that do not work.

    As a teen, a dermatologist kept giving me all kinds of lotions for my face. I had sensitive skin. Did he ever talk about that? No. A family member gave me some common sense advice, and it was major for my breakouts. I look back now and know he just wanted me spending money. It was a waste of my time and money.

  • YaThink

    I don’t know if I’m agreeing or not agreeing with you. I just know that when your liver is damaged, it can lead to skin problems. And I believe if you research psoriasis, the medical data found points to liver damage.

    But of course, I agree with what you said earlier about babies with psoriasis.

    In any case, people need to check into these things and find what works for them.

    Good luck to all.

    Skin problems can happen with liver damage but that’s mainly due to the liver not being able to properly do it’s job as one of the body’s filter organs. It is usually more the effect rather than the direct cause. Proper liver function is optimal and we do agree on that.
    It’s trial and error for what works for an individual. Magnesium is good because it helps the skin emollients and has a calming effect to the body.

    Look for a specialist in a certain field, nutrition for example, rather than a general doctor whenever possible. An herbal medicine specialist would be able to help you more with natural alternatives. The internet makes it easier to locate someone. Weed out those who only think they know or some of the workers at health stores because most of them are only cashiers and aren’t well trained.
    Advice and then trial and error has worked for you, me, and others.
