  • Kim Kardashian just got real with fans by sharing images of a psoriasis flare-up on her face.
  • Last month, Kim slammed a tabloid for saying she had a "bad skin day" because of psoriasis.
  • She previously tried using Kourtney Kardashian's breast milk to manage her flare-ups.

Back in early February, Kim Kardashian hit Twitter to slam a tabloid for saying she had acne when she was, in fact, having a psoriasis flare-up. Kim's had psoriasis (a condition where skin cells build-up and create red, scaly, and itchy patches) for quite some time, and she just hit Instagram Stories to share a glimpse of what she called her "psoriasis face" with fans.

Kim has been open about her psoriasis, and in 2016 said she's not going to hide it anymore. "Sometimes I just feel like it's my big flaw and everyone knows about it, so why cover it?" she explained, adding "I'm always hoping for a cure, of course, but in the meantime, I'm learning to just accept it as part of who I am."

And of course who can forget the iconic moment on Keeping Up with the Kardashians where Kim rubbed Kourtney's breast milk on her psoriasis as a home remedy? Good times.
