Kim Kardashian has been super open about her struggle with psoriasis in the past, but in a new Instagram post, she showed how she covers it up when she wants to.

Full disclosure, this is part of promoting her new line of body makeup, but she revealed that while most of the time she's not insecure about her psoriasis, there are days when she prefers to wear makeup. Totally fair.

"I use this when I want to enhance my skin tone or cover my psoriasis. I bruise easily and have veins and this has been my secret for over a decade. I’ve learned to live with and not be insecure of my psoriasis, but for days when I want to just cover it up I use this Body Makeup," she wrote.

You can see her psoriasis pretty clearly in that video. There's a visible difference between the body makeup leg and the other leg by the time she's done applying. Like... damn.

It seems like the question of whether she should cover it up or not is something Kim's been grappling with for a while. Back in 2016, she said she was learning to accept it.

"Sometimes I just feel like it's my big flaw and everyone knows about it, so why cover it?" she said. "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."

But it's totally understandable to have days where you feel less great about it. Do you, Kim!
