Kim Kardashian Reveals How She Covers Up Her Psoriasis

Kim Kardashian Reveals How She Covers Up Her Psoriasis

Going by the magazine shoots, TV footage and Insta feed of Kim Kardashian, you would probably believe that the celeb has nothing to hide. 

But the mum-of-four is starting to open up about her experience with psoriasis, an autoimmune disease that she’s “learned to live with” for over a decade.



In a recent Instagram post, the 38-year-old shared a video and a series of photos revealing how she covers the dry, scaly patches that psoriasis is characterised by. Of course, it involves a plug of her new range of products – the KKW Beauty Body Collection. 

Watch below to see how she does it…

In the video, Kim demonstrates how she uses the KKW Beauty Body Makeup on her legs, using a brush to spread the product evenly over her shin completely covering her psoriasis patches.

“I use this when I want to enhance my skin tone or cover my psoriasis,” she wrote in the caption. “I bruise easily and have veins and this has been my secret for over a decade. I’ve learned to live with and not be insecure of my psoriasis, but for days when I want to just cover it up I use this Body Makeup.”

Kim has been on the hunt for a cure for her psoriasis for the better part of the last decade, trying everything from celery juice to breast milk to light therapy. She has even consulted with a medical medium in hopes of relief from her autoimmune disease. All to no avail.

In the meantime, she’s relying on her Body Makeup potion. Those before-and-after photos are seriously impressive. But what really shines is her confidence. It’s great to hear Kim isn’t letting a few psoriasis patches hold her back.
