Kendall Jenner's acne used to make headlines. Heavily-zoomed paparazzi photos magnifying barely-there chin zits became front-page news stories, tied to tired captions like, "Supermodels, they're just like us." She was even bullied for her barely-visible breakouts on social media, to the point of having to step in to shut down the negativity herself.
But you — and the Twitter trolls — may have noticed that Jenner's skin has done a complete 180 recently.
