Yami Gautam shared a powerful message about self-love in an Instagram post on Monday. Sharing pictures from a recent photoshoot, the actress revealed that she is suffering from a skin condition called Keratosis-Pilaris. And she has finally mustered up the courage to speak about it and share 'untouched' photos. She also shared what motivated her to share the pictures and how she has accepted her ‘flaws’ wholeheartedly.
“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),” Yami shared.
“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.
"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!"
Concluding her revelation, Yami Gautam reiterated that she feels beautiful in her own skin, with all the imperfections and 'flaws'. She also said that she didn't feel like airbrushing her folliculitis or smoothing out those under-eye dark circles or shaping up her waist after she accepted herself for who she is.
Shortly after sharing the post, Yami received support from Kajal Aggarwal and Jacqueline Fernandez. Her fans and followers lauded her for embracing her flaws and lent support to her.
Work-wise, Yami Gautam was last seen in Bhoot Police, also starring Arjun Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Jacqueline. She recently wrapped the shoot of ‘Lost’ which is directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury. Apart from this, Yami Gautam has ‘Dasvi’ with Abhishek Bachchan. She will also be seen in ‘A Thursday’ essaying the role of a play school teacher.
