Gauri who worried with the fact that she hasn’t blessed with her mother’s “bombass skin”, said that she used old makeup products for a dance performance in her college. “This was especially when I was just getting used to the “heroine/actress” tag and many people probably wondered what kind of actress has shit skin like this” Gauri wrote in her to depict that her self esteem hit majorly at that time.

After all these efforts, the actress’s skin started behaving normal. she says by sharing a set of recent pictures. “Even then, I have to admit that I have been guilty of resorting to filters and editing apps to hide the acne” she said.
In her next story, Gauri shared a recent selfie picture of herself which was captured in January.

In her last story, Gauri remembered of a tailor aunty who criticized her for her bad skin. “you’ve got a good hair, but what about your skin ?” the aunty asked Gauri. The actress says that she still remembers that and requested her followers to accept each other. “If you notice a flaw in someone else and know for sure that it can’t be fixed in less than 10 seconds, don’t bother telling them? It will be better left unsaid. Normalise acne” she said.
