Some wonder women are unafraid. And they’ve all embraced their flaws by flaunting them boldly, unconcerned about what the rest of the world thinks of them or their skin. Three South Asian beauty influencers are here to inform us that we don’t have to hide our ‘flaws’ but rather embrace our pores, scars, blemishes, and pimples. We don’t need a beauty filter or makeup to cover up flaws in our skin. These ladies discuss their daily struggles with skin concerns, encourage their followers, and usher in a skin positivity revolution.


Let’s meet with these South Asian beauty influencers!


Ayesha Amir

Based in Oman, Ayesha Amir normalizes acne-prone skin by flaunting it on her social media posts rather than disguising it with cosmetics. She encourages women to do the same. She’s been mocked by a slew of merciless and cruel social media users, who have advised her to see a dermatologist or wash her face. But she never allowed the jerks on social media to get to her.

In response to the negative comments she has received on social media for publishing photos of her acne-prone face, she adds, “This is where the world has devolved! They’ll bring you down no matter what. Every day, I receive hundreds of negative comments, which tears my heart not only because they attempt to bring me down but also because they will bring down people who edit their images and are transparent. They will always strive to bring negativity into the situation, and they will never satisfy with anything.

It is normal for many of us to have texture, zits, acne, pores, and scars. Such people must understand that we do everything we can to help our skin, but it takes time (a lot of time), so please don’t be cruel to anyone because you never know what they are going through! Believe in yourself, don’t allow anyone to get you down, you are deserving and lovely no matter what, and live your best life.”



Karishma Leckraz

This South Asian beauty influencer has used social media to raise awareness of atopic dermatitis (eczema) and has also created cosmetics videos to show her followers skincare tricks for dealing with this skin issue. In one of the articles, she discussed her skin issue, writing,

“My name is Karishma Leckraz, and unfortunately I’ve been suffering from atopic eczema for a long period of time.” It’s been on my body since I was two and on my face since I was sixteen. I’m now 26 years old. It’s been a while. I don’t think anyone can truly comprehend how difficult coping with something like this is unless they’ve gone through it themselves. It’s not merely a “skin issue.”

I’m also suffering from TSW (topical steroid withdrawal), which is an entirely other skin condition caused by the steroid creams used to treat eczema. I’m doing this because I’m fed up with concealing. On Instagram, you essentially see the lowest proportion of someone’s life, and people soon forget this.

So, I want people to understand how serious this may become and how much of an impact it has on our lives. Some days, I don’t want to get out of bed, let alone leave home, since I’m so miserable and look so bad, and I despise dealing with the stares and continuous “what’s wrong with your face?”

I’ve decided to document my entire journey over the next few weeks as I overhaul my diet and eliminate things like dairy and gluten to determine how big of an influence our gut has on our overall health.

This South Asian beauty influencer and entrepreneur is the owner of the Live Tinted cosmetics company. Deepica’s entire motivation for creating this brand was to make beauty products for women of color, who have very few beauty brands catering to their skin tone. Deepica’s YouTube video about concealing her black circles with crimson lipstick went popular in 2015. Instead of hiding dark circles, stretch marks, and acne scars, the 31-year-old spreads the message of celebrating them.
