Just let it be.”
Talking about her skin Disease she said “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 neighbour aunty makes it out to be. I developed this skin condition during my teenage years, and there is still no cure for it.”
The consultant, Sonal Bansal who is a dermatologist at Fortis Memorial Research Institute which is at Gurgaon said “Keratosis pilaris causes small tiny bumps on upper arms, thighs, elbows. They can be red in colour and feel rough. They are very often confused with ingrown hair.
She further added “If the skin is dry, these bumps can be itchy and dryness can, further, increase them.”As per the dermatologist advice she said “To deal with keratosis pilaris, the use of creams with glycolic acid is recommended. Also, gentile exfoliation is needed.”
She firmly says I love myself for what I am I can't change the perspective due to the disease.“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!
She concluded saying“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."
