Yami Gautam had earlier revealed that she has been battling with a skin condition since her early teenage years. Yami had announced on social media that she has been dealing with keratosis pilaris for many years now and the actress got the courage to share unedited photos. In a recent chat with Yami Gautam opened up on going public with her skin condition.
Yami called her decision to share her story ‘liberating’ saying, “Writing the post wasn’t difficult; it was liberating. The journey from the time when I learnt of my condition to the day I put the post out, was challenging.”
The actress further added that it took her years of confidence and courage to finally talk about her skin condition. “When people saw me at shoot, they would talk about how it should be airbrushed or concealed. That would affect me a lot. It took years to accept it and wear my confidence. I was overwhelmed to see the response to the post,” Yami was quoted saying.
In the post, Yami has also shared some of her unedited pictures from a photoshoot and wrote, “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! 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.”
