So I have always struggled with mild acne. Always had these bumps on my forehead that JUST WOULD NOT BUDGE! I had gotten used to them. But the journey I have been on for a couple of months has been quite a painful one. I’d just come back to chitral from a day trip to kalash and after I had washed my face it started to burn and my skin went red. Didn’t take it seriously but the next day I had these tiny red bumps ALL OVER MY FACE.I freaked out but didn’t let it get the best of me because I was at work. They would show on camera, everybody started to ask me, started with the totkas and then came the anxiety.. khair when I got back they kind of calmed down.My skin looked clearer than before. But some three months back it started to act up again and it was even worse this time! I kept it clean,toner,creams,dermatologists,everything! Nothing seemed to fix my skin and I had my night AND days of crying. Feeling insecure. Anxiety. Makeup wouldn’t help. I was a mess but I went through it and got out of it too. I went to a different doctor and he prescribed me some meds. My skin has been better than before. But it made me wonder.. Why is my skin defining me? Who has made these beauty standards that we always feel the need to match? The society? Clear skin is beauty? I know that the idea of being “perfect” is appealing to majority but you don’t need to be an airbrushed flawless image to feel beautiful. Nobody should feel the pressure of matching the ridiculous societal beauty standards.Have your own.Beauty is within and anybody who makes you feel small because of what you LOOK like shouldn’t be around you! To all the brothers and sisters out there! Being a celebrity does not mean perfection; it only means we have chosen a profession that makes us and our lives public but certainly not that we do not go through issues in life; Every individual has their own. Perfection is not what we should be seeking, being comfortable in our own skin is the key. This is my skin at the moment. Better than before but still not quite okay. But till I tackle it am I gonna hide myself from the world? Shy away from people? No. Yes I am struggling but my skin DOES NOT define me. 🙏🏽
Sharing photos of her acne, she asked, “Why is my skin defining me? Who has made these beauty standards that we always feel the need to match? […] I know that the idea of being “perfect” is appealing to the majority but you don’t need to be an airbrushed flawless image to feel beautiful.”
Her fans and fellow celebrities appreciated her post including celebrities like Syra Shahroz and Meesha Shafi. The post garnered 120,000 likes and comments.
In between this, Yasir Hussain’s irreverent and frivolous joke upset Hania Amir. Yasir Hussain in his AMA session on Instagram was asked to describe Hania Amir in one post and he replied with ‘Daanedar’ (pockmarked).
Hania initially brushed his comment off, saying, “Forgive my friend. He’s become prone to making inappropriate jokes.” Later, however, she addressed the mean-spiritedness behind the joke, saying: “It’s high time that people realize that it’s not okay to make jokes out of people’s insecurities. Humour is great but be careful with it.
Don’t try and act cool about making someone feel bad about what they might consider a flaw. It’s disrespect. Not funny. I’m not laughing. No one is.” Yasir Hussain, however, did not respond back or apologised as his crude remarks have definitely upset even his followers as well.
