It's been two whole years since season four of ITV’s Love Island kept us glued to our sofas, and although Kendall was the first Islander to be dumped on the 2018 show, it’s safe to say she’s far from forgettable.

With her stunning looks and washboard abs, you’d be forgiven for thinking the former beauty queen doesn’t suffer from common beauty problems like acne.

But that’s far from the truth, according to the Islander who revealed to her 913k Instagram followers that she’s been suffering with "horrendous" breakouts.

“I’m actually annoyed at myself for not taking photos of how bad my skin was last month,” Kendall shares. “My breakouts were so bad and sore I could barely touch my face at one point.”

The TV personality opened up to her fans about her skincare struggles, asking her followers “does anyone else feel like the slight change in weather or our masks have been causing horrendous breakouts?”

It seems like Kendall is experiencing what the beauty world is calling “maskne” .

Since the government made the wearing of PPE mandatory, there have been increased reports of people suffering with skin conditions such as acne, eczema and rosacea – even after wearing a face covering for short periods of time.

Kendall has always been open about her skin journey, in the past admitting to fans “for some reason, I’ve got the skin of a teenager.”

Fortunately, the star has found the perfect products for clearing up her bad skin which she claims “has done wonders.”

In an Instagram story, the Islander shared that she had recently purchased a face wash, toner and moisturiser from cosmetics brand Clinique – known for its kind-to-skin formulas.

Speaking about the products, the star says: “my skin is the best it has ever been, maybe because it isn’t too chemically, I don’t know, but it deffo agrees with me.”

Kendall didn’t specify which exact products she purchased, but Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions Cleansing Foam, £19 here, Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions Clarifying Lotion £18.50 here and Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel, £16 here are all suitable for spot-prone skin.

It’s not the only skincare tip she’s shared either. The star regularly shares product recommendations to a highlight reel on her Instagram page.

The former model says she uses Simple Kind To Skin Cleansing Wipes, £1.65 here, to remove the top layer of her make-up before washing her face.
