The Janaan actress Hania Aamir is known for her style sense and flawless beauty. From her skin to her hair, she never fails to amaze her fans and followers.
However recently, the actress has been facing severe breakouts and decided to share her lifelong struggle with acne with her followers.
She shared a number of her pictures without any makeup and wrote:
I always had these bumps on my forehead that would just not budge! I had gotten used to them. But, the journey I have been on for a couple of months now has been quite a painful one.
She shared her experience of a trip to Chitral and said:
I had just come back to Chitral from Kalash and after I washed my face, it started to burn,” she said, adding it instantly turned red. “I didn’t take it seriously but the next day I had 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.
She further told painful comments of people and wrote:
Everybody began asking me. I started with the totkas (quick fixes), and then came the anxiety. When I returned from the trip, I calmed down a little as my skin looked clearer than before. But, some three months back, it started to act up again and it was even worse this time!” she added. “I kept it clean, used toner and creams, went to the dermatologists, everything! Nothing seemed to fix my skin and I had my days and nights of crying.
She concluded by saying:
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, but being comfortable in our own skin is the key.
Here’s her post!

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. 🙏🏽
