With just a couple of weeks to her fairytale wedding, Kim Kardashian has found herself in a difficult spot as she has learned that she has an incurable skin condition called psoriasis. Apparently, the diva who is envied for her amazing beauty and flawless looking skin has woken-up to find a terrible rash that spread all over her body. Kim Kardashian covers the entire story of her skin condition in her reality TV series Keeping Up with The Kardashians.
After being scared by her sister, who believed the flaky red patches on her skin were caused by ringworms, Kim turns towards a specialist’s opinion, a dermatologist who tells her that the red patches are actually psoriasis. Psoriasis is a chronic immune-mediated disease that affects the skin, but that is not contagious.
Apparently, Kim Kardashian isn’t the only one in the family with this skin condition, as her mom Kris Jenner has been struggling with the condition from the time she was the same age as Kim. After Kim finds out that the skin condition is incurable, but controllable, she panics. Her doctor tells her the psoriasis is affected by travelling, diet and fast lifestyle and suggests to lead a slow-paced life. Slow paced is definitely not a word in Kim’s vocabulary as she tells her doctor firmly: “It’s just not possible!”
Kim rushes back from the dermatologists office and heads to her mom’s house to confront her. Kim blames her mom for passing on the skin condition to her and tries to deal with things. Kim’s career is all about image and this could really affect her in everything she does. Kim states in the episode which covers her trouble with psoriasis that:
“My career is doing ad campaigns and swimsuit photo shoots. People don’t understand the pressure on me to look perfect. When I gain a pound, it’s in the headlines. Imagine what the tabloids would do to me if they saw all these spots?”
However, it seems that Kim has found a way to deal with the rash and do the ad video she had scheduled, although she insisted that her mom had it canceled. Makeup is yet again a saver for Kim as she manages to cover every spot with the help of high coverage makeup products. Do you think that Kim’s career will be affected by this skin condition?
