“I loved my dress and my hair and my make-up was so beautiful,” she recalls in a commercial for skincare company Proactiv, which aired at last night’s awards show. “Then I remember going online and seeing all the horrible things people were saying about me and my skin.”
This isn’t the first time that Jenner has gotten real with fans about her visible acne. She’s previously written about her experience with blemishes on her website: “Where it really impacted me was how self-conscious I became about it. It completely ruined my self-esteem,” she wrote.
When it comes to bad skin days, honey is your best friend. It has natural anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, making it an excellent at-home treatment for killing any spot-causing microorganisms on the skin. Turmeric, on the other hand, has been used for centuries in both Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, to treat a vast array of health problems – thanks to it anti-inflammatory goodness.
The best way to tap into their healing magic is by slathering a DIY face mask over your skin. Simply mix half a teaspoon of turmeric with a tablespoon of honey and layer it evenly over a clean, dry face, avoiding the eye area. Leave it to sink into the skin for anywhere from 10-20 minutes, and then rinse it off after. Repeat once a week for the perfect spot-busting Sunday night ritual.
