New Delhi: Bollywood diva Yami Gautam who not only mesmerizes the audience with her acting skills but also with her smouldering good looks, has been suffering from a skin condition. The ‘Bhoot Police’ actress recently opened up about her skin condition Keratosis- Pilaris in her latest social media post.

Yami Gautam posted some unedited pictures of herself on Instagram and penned down a long note sharing details about her skin condition. Keratosis-Pilaris is a skin condition that causes dry, rough patches and tiny bumps on the skin. These often develop on the upper arms, thighs or cheeks.

Yami Gautam shared a note that read, “Hello my insta family, 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). 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.”

The ‘Dasvi’ actress 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! 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”.

Meanwhile, speaking on the work front, Yami Gautam will be next seen featuring in ‘Dasvi’, ‘A Thursday’, ‘Lost’ and ‘OMG – Oh My God 2’.
