After Hania Aamir, Tuba Aamir Liaquat too shuns ‘unrealistic’ beauty standards
TV show host Syeda Tuba Aamir Liaquat has called for women to accept their skin and avoid longing for ‘unrealistic’ beauty standards.
During a special Ramzan transmission that she’s hosting on state-run Pakistan Television (PTV), Tuba said that no one had a ‘photoshopped skin’, implying that the photographs of models on magazine covers were highly edited.

Just yesterday I was talking about skin and photoshop on Hamara Ramazan Transmission and then later saw @haniaheheofficial post in which she spoke up about her skincare struggles and her story is super relatable. She made a very grounded yet an unpopular opinion. Don’t let your skin define YOU! #syedatubaaamir #haniaamir #dontletyourskindefineyou
“The girls who long for ‘magazine’ skin must realise that it’s all fake – none of it is real”, she said.
She further said that every woman had pores on her skin and it was a very real thing and should be accepted.
Hania had started a campaign yesterday calling for women to accept their imperfect skin.
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. pic.twitter.com/J314a4Xy1r

In her Instagram post, Tuba also appreciated Hania Aamir’s stance on the matter.
She said that Hania’s was a very grounded yet unpopular opinion. “Don’t let your skin define YOU!”, she exclaimed.
A number of other celebrities including Mehwish Hayat had supported Hania Aamir’s campaign with Hayat writing ‘Flawsome is Awesome’.
Flawsome is awesome. Away from the studio lights, the cameras & the glamorous make up, We all battle with the same skin problems & insecurities as any other girl. Let's embrace it – its called being a woman. #MehwishHayat #Flawsome #Beautyiswithin #london2019🇬🇧 pic.twitter.com/GX6KqLsGOf
