Heidi Klum’s daughter has been honest on Instagram about her battle with acne. Leni Klum, 16, shared an unfiltered photo of her skin up close, revealing an active rash as well as redness on her cheek.
“My skin on a bad day,” she captioned the photo, adding the hashtags, “#nomakeup nofilter sowhat. “
In addition to the photo on her feed, she then shared a video of her naked face on Instagram Stories. In the short clip, the teenager moved her head from side to side to show fans the rashes she currently had on her face, writing “bad skin.” This too should pass. “
Fans in the comments applauded the teenager for showing off her intact skin and for being aware of the common skin struggle many experienced.
“I really like that she is so openly generous with it,” wrote one Instagram user. “I wish everyone was like her. Excellent model Leni! “
“Yeah, let’s normalize that,” wrote one commentator.
Another person added: “So cool you showing reality. “
A fan thanked Leni for posting the photo, adding, “You are a beautiful flower. Raw beauty and truth. I am looking at you.
Leni recently appeared on the cover of the January / February issue of Vogue Germany alongside her famous mom in her first big hit in the modeling world. The mother-daughter duo donned brightly colored pantsuits as they posed for the blanket with Klum kissing her daughter on the cheek.
“So excited for my first cover !! »She wrote on Instagram. “I had so much fun on set with @voguegermany couldn’t ask for a better start !! Thank you for being by my side @ heidiklum❤ »
Leni told Vogue it was only a matter of time before following in her mother’s footsteps and becoming a model herself. “The first offer came when I was only 12 or 13, from a brand I loved to wear: Brandy Melville,” she says. “At that point, I begged my mother, but no luck. Now I understand that it would have been too early.
The 47-year-old model and mother of four has kept her children out of the spotlight over the years, but has given Leni her blessing to make her debut as a model.
“Sixteen is a good age,” she explained. “If you are allowed to drive a car, you can also have an official Instagram account and show your face. And to be allowed to start with a cover of “Vogue” is an insane privilege.
