Masaba Gupta’s Instagram post about her struggle with ‘Acne’ is something every woman can relate to!
Do you feel an urge to cover your pimple-loaded face within the layers of makeup? This is something every girl has felt once in her life. Acne can be a lot embarrassing. But they are as normal as everything else is. Skin is just an organ of our body and our organs are bound to malfunction at times.
Masaba Gupta is quite aware of the fact. The Indian fashion designer decided to come up and talk about the insecurities of a woman. Recently, Masaba posted a throwback picture of herself on Instagram. In her post, she openly talks about her acne issues. A not-so-clear skin is something that always holds a woman down and when you’re famous, a single ‘pimple’ can suddenly become a talk of the town. But Masaba chooses to stay natural.
It's taken me a LOT to put up this picture. But I felt like I had to. Ofcourse acne is common & weight problems are common and people deal with it and get over it with time. But what do you do when your bang in the middle of it ? Ive had terrible acne for 14yrs and by terrible I mean , most days it looked like I had a cigarette Stubbed in my face. Dark scars in my face & in my head. there were days I would refuse to leave home without putting powder on my face & refused to put any lights on in the room. Ive had men tell me they want to throw up when they see my face. Ive run out of my house to school with concealer on my face because I couldn't take it anymore. So many of you must be bang in the middle of this. Some extra weight , a whole lotta acne. The truth is .. you have to go with it. That also means you have to work at getting better. Better health,better skin. Better everything. It's wellbeing afterall. Don't live with what you don't like. Punch it out of your system! You have to cringe when you see yourself in the mirror , cry until you choke. DO.IT.ALL.but once your done with that you have to run your finger down all the clear,beautiful spots on you & you have to do it every single day. Brush your teeth. Practice confidence. Practice self-Estéem. Practice strength. Because we all know it will be knocked out of us 3 mins after we step out of home. Don't expect to read an article about 'beauty coming from the inside' and expect to wake up the next day feeling like your beautiful. Doesn't work like that. If beauty to you is stepping out with a face full of makeup then so be it. If it's about flaunting your scars. So be it. But when you come back home & the lights are out. And every tear has been shed with every remark that Hit you.. until you build your wall & you will be the biggest,bestest version of everything that has happened to you. Collect your scars & build them into something beautiful. #throwback
Even if you’ve not suffered from acne or any other skin issue, you can still relate to the post. You can feel it hitting the right chords of your heart. We, the women, are always judged for our physical appearance. Be it our height, weight, complexion, hair, skin and endless things! We’re never perfect and it’s high time we should try being one.
This single post by the brave young designer shuns all the judgmental perspective of people towards women. It’s really not easy to post such a picture of yourself on social media, especially when you’re on that pedestal!
