Acne does not affect anyone just physically. It can also affect a slew of emotions. Ask Keke Palmer. Palmer always keeps it real, but it's still refreshing to see such a big star say what we've all been pondering: why is acne still so difficult to treat?!?
Palmer posted a funny but-non-joking video on Instagram earlier this week, pleading to doctors to discover a cure for adult acne. She says plastic surgeons are fantastic. All of these years and inventions boob jobs, under the muscle, tummy tuck, BBL, implanted muscles, but you cant seem to grasp how to remove my beautiful skin and apply it on my face? I'm fed up with it, you've figured out a cure?
Palmer has spoken out about her acne difficulties for the first time. Back in December 2020, she revealed she was diagnosed with Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).
TMI may be a problem for some of you, but for me my platform has always been used for things much greater than myself, she wrote. My acne has been so severe that people in my field have offered to pay for me to have it fixed. I tried EVERYTHING.
Palmer claims to have been put on Accutane twice, ate well, and got clear blood testing. Doctors could not see anything wrong with her, so she took her health into her own hands and did her research, ultimately finding an answer. But even after getting answers, dealing with PCOS symptoms, like acne, can be a constant struggle. But talking about it, like Palmer does, helps remove the stigma.
