Supermodel Cara Delevingne has hit back after she was subjected to a barrage of abuse for showing off patches of flaky skin. The model is battling psoriasis, a condition which causes red and crusty patches of skin, but she has received a host of catty remarks after posting a photo on Instagram.com detailing the severity of her condition. The image shows Delevingne sitting in a supermarket trolley with flaky patches of red skin on her legs, and it prompted several nasty responses including, "OMG (oh my God)! Your skin! Cara Delevingne u need a bath!" and "Ugly boots, ugly legs". Now the British beauty has hit back, taking to Twitter.com to write, "Just to reiterate, I have psoriasis and it's (sic) leaves scares (sic) and I will have (it) for the rest of my life... I can handle the negative comments but just remember that no one is perfect. Embrace your individuality! It's makes you who you are."
