If you've ever had a breakout or bad skin, you know what a toll it can take on your confidence...and you're certainly not alone. Just ask Kendall Jenner, who had to go through her awkward teenage years with TV cameras constantly filming for E!. The 19-year-old model graces the cover of Allure and gets real about growing up under the spotlight.

"I had just started ninth grade when I got my acne," she explains. "And I had braces. I wouldn't look people in the eye. It was not a good time for me--it just killed my self-esteem. I thought when I didn't look at someone, they couldn't see my face."

The good news is Kendall grew out of her skin problems to become the face of Estee Lauder, a beauty company, and a modeling sensation. So next time you've got a blemish, remember: it gets better! In the mag, Kendall poses with an adorable monkey and reveals she still gets shy sometimes despite all of her success.

"I still have a hard time looking at someone when I'm talking to them, and I get nervous," she says. "When I started getting in front of the camera a lot, I think my confidence started to come out. It took a minute, because I had to believe in myself."

Now that Kendall's found her stride, she's unstoppable. So the next time you're feeling blah about yourself, remember that anything's possible.
