ith a closet full of couture and millions of fans, Kendall Jenner’s luxe life has been anything but ordinary. So it’s no wonder the reality star and model is freaking out that her crummy complexion was on display during a makeup-free night in New York City on Jan. 12. “It’s so embarrassing for Kendall to book a job then show up needing so much concealer,” dishes a source close to the catwalker. “She worries that people won’t want to keep hiring her with these ‘oil rigs,’ as she calls them, all over her skin.” Ironically, it may be modeling that’s causing the problem. “Too much makeup can clog your pores and cause bacteria and oil to build up, and then you break out,” explains Dr. Tahl Humes, director of Vitahl Medical Aesthetics in Denver. “Kendall’s probably not washing it all off when she gets home. Everybody forgets, but you need to wash your face morning and night.” She also says that stress and hormones — too much testosterone can lead to acne — are making things worse, ditto with Kendall’s hectic travel schedule. “The most effective treatments are topical at-home products and certain chemical peels and lasers,” Dr. Humes adds. But Kendall’s been there, done that. “She has the best dermatologists on speed dial and her skin’s fine for a while, but it’s always only a temporary reprieve,” explains the pal. “She might come across as this sexy, confident supermodel, but secretly, she’s so upset by her acne that it keeps her up at night.” H
