She's on every single billboard poster going and all of the high-end fashion designers are falling over themselves to snap her up, so it's hard to imagine Kendall Jenner looking anything less than perfect...

But in a recent blog post which the Keeping up with The Kardashians star uploaded to her website, the reality star opened up about her skin woes and admitted that she suffered from confidence crushing bouts of acne during her teens.

The face of Balmain and Calvin Klein wrote: "I had such bad acne when I was younger; I remember it SO well! I started having skin issues around the 8th or 9th grade."

World-famous supermodel Kendall has made no secret of her skin struggles and continued: "I think I just got acne from being a teenager and simply growing up, which happens to SO many people. But, where it really impacted me was how self-conscious I became about it. It completely ruined my self-esteem."

It's hard to believe that Kenny's breakouts were so debilitating, especially as she just completed stints at London, Paris, New York and Shanghai Fashion Week but the brunette beauty really opened up about the impact her spots had on her life, especially growing up in the limelight.

Kendall said, "I wouldn't even look at people when I talked to them. I felt like such an outcast; when I spoke, it was with my hand covering my face."

Thankfully, after paying a Hollywood skincare specialist a visit for "Laser Genesis", mixing up her beauty regime and following big sister Kim Kardashian's advice not to touch her face too often, Kendall's zits finally began to let up.

"Slowly, I'm working towards not caring and I'm just in so much of a better place about it all now that I'm older," she finished. "I realised that it's a part of life for some people and it doesn't define who you are."
