Actress Yami Gautam is loved not alone for her craft but also for her beauty and simplicity. But did you know she has been suffering from a skin condition called Keratosis-Pilaris. The ‘Uri’ actress opened up about it in a social media post.

With some unedited pictures that reflect what she is talking about, Yami penned down a long note about her skin condition. It 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.”

Here are the pictures for you to see:

She 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 :)"

Keratosis pilaris causes patches of rough-feeling bumps to appear on the skin. It is commonly found on the upper arms, thighs, cheeks. It isn’t contagious, and these bumps don’t usually cause any discomfort or itching.
