Actress Yami Gautam recently revealed she has suffered from the keratosis pilaris, an incurable skin condition, since her teenage years. She had been the face of the former fairness cream brand but now decided to let go of all her fears and insecurities. The actress penned a note on her Twitter revealing that she has been dealing with this condition.
Yami Gautam has been conscious about her skin condition for years, but now she has decided to embrace it. She shared a bunch of close-up shots of herself with series of tweets. She wrote, “Hello friends, I recently shot for some images and just when they were about to go in for post-production (a common procedure) to conceal my skin condition called Keratosis- Pilaris, I thought, ‘Hey Yami, why don’t you embrace this fact and accept it enough to be OKAY with it. Just let it be… (Yes, I do talk out loud to myself)”.
She elaborated about her skin condition since her teenage days, and the actress wrote, “For those who haven’t heard about this, it’s a skin condition wherein you get tiny bumps on the skin. I promise they aren’t as bad as your mind and your neighbor aunty makes it out to be. I developed this skin condition during my teenage years, and there is still no cure for it.”
Yami said she is finally ready to accept her flaws wholeheartedly. She further added, “I’ve dealt with it for many years now, and today finally, I decided to let go of all my fears and insecurities and found the courage to love and accept my ‘flaws’ wholeheartedly. I also found the courage to share my truth with you. Phew!”
The actress wrapped her post, writing, “I didn’t feel like airbrushing my folliculitis or smoothing that ‘under-eye or ‘shaping up’ that waist a tiny bit more! And yet, I feel beautiful.”
Yami Gautam was a part of Pavan Kirpalani’s Bhoot Police, co-starring Saif Ali Khan, Arjun Kapoor, and Jacqueline Fernandez.
