Actress Yami Gautam has revealed that she is suffering from a skin condition called Keratosis pilaris and said that she developed the condition during her teenage years and that there is no cure for it.
Yami also shared a bunch of unedited pictures embracing her skin on Twitter.
Alongside the images, 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.”
Keratosis pilaris is a condition that causes rough patches and small, acne-like bumps on the skin.
Yami added: “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.”
