She recently tore a ligament after she fell off a treadmill.

Alexandra completed the look with a white sports bra and white trainers. 

She wore a soft make-up look and styled her raven tresses in a loose wave as she captured different selfies from her bedroom mirror. 

The reality star joked: ‘My trainers need a scrub,’ while wishing her followers to ‘have a fab Sunday.’

It comes after Alexandra opened up about her ‘crippling’ battle with impetigo on Wednesday as she revealed her inflamed skin in a make-up free Instagram post.

She admitted she has suffered from the condition for years and would refuse to leave the house because it made her feel so insecure. 

The make-up artist discussed the contagious skin infection as she captured her swollen skin and penned: ‘Graphic content, not the usual glam face I know!   

‘Woken up with some weird sinus blockage on left side of my face. My eye is swollen, constant liquid seeping out of my skin, under skin spot which is so inflamed. 

‘Any advice welcome, I’m going to have to put a plaster on it I think.’   

Impetigo is a skin infection caused by bacterium. It predominantly affects children and teenagers and appears as red sores on the face, particularly around the nose, mouth, hands, and feet.

The blisters burst, causing golden and brown crust patches to develop on the skin.   

Alexandra then posted another Instagram snap where she enhanced her face with make-up and wore a plaster on her nose. 

She continued: ‘I spent the majority of my teen years suffering from impetigo. It was so crippling and at times I would literally refuse to leave the house because of how disgusting I felt at that time… My skin problems caused me so much distress. 

‘Gone are those days baby. I am not gonna let that s**t waste any more of my time now. If people love you. They love you for who you are on the inside, not what you look like.

‘Life is short. S***w the spots. Be apologetically you.’

WHAT IS IMPETIGO? 

Impetigo is a skin infection caused by a bacterium; the commonest ones are staphylococcus or streptococcus.

It usually starts as small blisters, anywhere on the body but often on the face, which join up forming bigger areas of pus under the skin. The skin often peels off leaving sore, red, raw patches which dry with bright yellow crusts.

These heal from the centre outwards and may leave red rings of skin around the edge as they do so.

Impetigo is very itchy and highly contagious. This is why it can whip through nurseries, playgroups and families.

To reduce the spread at school affected children have to stay at home. But this does not reduce the risk of spread within your own family and the infection can be prolonged.

Treatment nearly always requires antibiotic cream, such as fucidin, or in established or recurrent cases, antibiotics by mouth for up to ten days. 

If the infection won’t go away, the GP usually needs to send swabs to be tested. 

Sometimes one or more children in a family or another member of the family may continue to carry the bacterium in their nose.
