Acne doesn’t just affect someone physically. It can be a rollercoaster of emotions. Just ask Keke Palmer. In a new video, the actor realized he still suffered from adult acne. Palmer always remains realistic, but it’s always refreshing to see such a big star say what we’ve all been thinking: why is acne always so hard to treat? !
Earlier this week, Palmer hopped on Instagram to make a joking but not pleasing video for doctors to develop a cure for adult acne. “Plastic surgeons are amazing,” she says. “All these years and all these inventions – work on the breasts, above the muscle, under the muscle, tummy tuck, BBL, even implanted muscles – but you don’t know how to remove the beautiful skin from my ass and put it on my face? I’m sick of it, I’m done with it, people here with adult acne are struggling and you haven’t found that remedy?”
This isn’t the first time Palmer has opened up about her acne issues. In December 2020, she revealed that she had been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
“For some of you it may be TMI, but for me my platform has always been used for things way bigger than me,” she wrote. “Polycystic ovary syndrome has attacked me from the inside all my life and I had no idea. My acne is so bad that people in my field have offered to pay me to fix it. J ‘ve tried EVERYTHING.”
Palmer says she was put on Accutane twice, ate well and had clear blood work. The doctors saw nothing abnormal. So, she took her health into her own hands and did her research, taking what she found to a doctor and getting a proper diagnosis. But even after getting answers, dealing with PCOS symptoms, like acne, can be an ongoing struggle. But talking about it, as Palmer does, helps get rid of the stigma. Because all skin is good skin.
