‘I woke up this morning in the worst spirit you guys , all because of my skin…’ she said. ‘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 went on.

But Keke realized opening up would help fans with their own struggles, saying: ‘I just thought to share because I know I’m not alone.

‘People always try to cheer you up or say you look beautiful which makes it worse because that’s not how YOU FEEL. Then you feel bad about feeling bad smh,’ Palmer said. ‘But, I think it’s okay to feel those things and to let yourself be for a minute.’ 

But she finished on an optimistic note, telling everyone: ‘I’m only human and everyday 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.’
