Keke Palmer is often known to bring laughter to her fans' lives, but in a raw Instagram update, she opens up about her insecurities, particularly when it comes to her skin breakouts and scars.


On Sunday, Keke Palmer woke up in bad spirits because of her skin. That is why to remind her of the beautiful things in life, she decided to share a picture with her loved ones.

According to Keke, she's tried many things to improve her skin, but it seems nothing works. In fact, sometimes, these treatments even make her feel worse than before.

“It’s like you can try everything (which I have) and still nothing works. Every time I think my skin is on the up and up I turn around and I’m broken out even worse than before. Scarred up and wondering which products I have to throw out if not ALL. Feeling completely insecure which in turn makes you irritable and just self conscious for the smallest reasons.”



She adds that even when people call her "beautiful," she gets frustrated because it makes her feel worse that it's not what she feels. In the end, though, she realized that it's okay to feel such things and it's normal to let yourself be for a while.

"I'm only human and everydat I'm gonna roll with the punches but some days I will get the air knocked out of me. Gonna keep going though! Cause that's how I was built. Much love."



A couple of days prior, Keke showed off some skin in an Instagram photo of herself in a denim crop top and matching pants. This proves that sometimes, there are really better days than others, and that's okay.

Palmer had a great 2019, as she got to star in the movie "Hustlers" alongside Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Cardi B, and Lili Reinhart, while at the same time bagging a co-hosting gig on the Good Morning America spin-off "Strahan, Sara, and Keke."



Previously she filled in for Sara Haines during her maternity leave, but because she was such a hit with the viewers, she became one of the show's permanent hosts.

Now that a new year and decade is here, fans are excited to see what Palmer has in-store for them especially now that she's unapologetically letting her true light shine.
