Keke Palmer has a “discreet beard” because she suffers from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).
The 28-year-old actress was diagnosed with the disease – which affects the functioning of the ovaries – after battling adult acne for years, and has now revealed how she learned to deal with her health issues.
She shared, “I kind of found out this is what I was dealing with and it answered a lot of questions, not only why I had acne but why I grow hair. on my face or under my chin, you know I have a discreet beard that I have to shave every other day.
“I started to focus on the fact that you know, in order for me to treat acne after puberty like I did, there had to be something deeper. And that’s it. around that time I tackled PCOS and also things that I needed to change about my diet. “
Keke has spent time learning about the disease. However, she now accepts that it is “different for everyone”.
Speaking to ‘The Tamron Hall Show’, the ‘Hustlers’ actress added: to empower me.
“It was to empower me and to give me the opportunity to say, ‘You know what? Just own who you are, love yourself.’ It was like I was like, ‘I love you my daughter no matter what. I love you so much. I will show you everything and I will not be afraid.’ “
