When you look in the mirror and feel self-conscious about your acne, or whether you’ve had enough of feeling self-conscious about your acne, Alizeh Shah has a thought for you.
The Ehd-e-Wafa actress took to Instagram to share her insecurity-inducing acne fight.
“Here I am putting my biggest insecurity on display,” Shah began, confessing, “Yes I’ve been struggling with acne for quite a long time.”
“A lot of us have this idea that ‘clear skin’ should be the goal,” she noted, though then confessing one does not need perfect skin to be happy.
‘The current state of your skin does not measure your worth or your beauty!” Alizeh said.
She then followed up with a video zooming in on her face and proudly displaying her acne scars, as she should.
Acne is a common skin disease that affects 9.4% of the global population, making it the eighth most common condition on the earth. Acne often affects individuals when they reach puberty, but it may also affect teenagers and young adults. Between the ages of 12 and 24, about 85% of adults have a kind of acne.
It’s good to see Alizeh Shah speaking out about this because many young people despise themselves when they see inflammations and sores on their faces every day.
