Living with a chronic illness often isn’t easy, and it can come with a plethora of its own trials and tribulations. But by opening up to her 141 million Instagram followers, Kim Kardashian has proven that even celebrities live and deal with chronic conditions, too.
Kim’s recent Instagram post promotes a forthcoming series of KKW Beauty products—”body make up, a liquid body shimmer and a loose shimmer powder.” But it also demystifies psoriasis, and shows how the condition affects Kim on a daily basis.
Sharing a video of herself applying her new body makeup line, as well as before and after photos, Kim got incredibly honest with her audience about a health condition she has lived with for over a decade.
While body makeup won’t be for everybody, nor should anyone feel the need to cover up the effects of their condition unless they want to, Kim’s results with her KKW Beauty products are pretty impressive.

While the Kardashians often present impossibly preened, Instagram-perfected versions of themselves to the world, it’s refreshing that Kim isn’t afraid to show what her skin really looks like when she’s having a psoriasis flare.
