So I was always taking care of my skin ever since I was in school. There were times when people would ask me, ‘What do you do for pimples? What do you do for hair color?’ I would always help them to enhance their looks and feel comfortable in their skin.”

So I thought, ‘Why not do a little bit of touch-up and get this thing going?’ And since I changed my username to this, I got a lot of exposure from the international skincare market.

There’s also no other guy out there who’s doing so much on skincare, especially collaborating with different brands, going to different clinics, and all doing a lot of procedures.”

No matter if he lives in Dubai, with heart, Adnan is a pure Pakistan in and out. On becoming Pakistan’s first Ken doll he said, “I thought that this is an idea that I can use to make my country stand out in this field also.

So whenever I go out to the international market and whenever I give speeches, I tell that I’m from Pakistan. And that people in Pakistan are conscious about their skincare.”

Talking about lookalike surgery things went down, Sahar Tabar Iranian girl who had surgery to lookalike Angelina Jolie went viral and later turned out to be the worst thing. She was on a ventilator in 2020 due to coronavirus.

Skincare is a debatable topic in our society

When it comes to men taking care of their skin, in Pakistan it’s a big debatable topic that is considered a very feminine thing. Adnan stated, “Why? Why do people think that men don’t need to take care of themselves? Don’t we have a face? Even a lion goes to the river to wash his face.

Aren’t we leaving, breathing beings? Don’t we eat? Those are the same things that women do too. We’re in a time where women are equal to men which also means that men need to start taking care of their skin a little more too.

It’s often only when the man is getting married that he realizes that he needs to work on his skin, otherwise, not many bother.”

Just like every other celebrity doing something unique Adnan also faced high criticism and hateful comments on social media.

“I just don’t care. You should do something that makes you happy. And you should not listen to people. I am open to criticism and consider their feedback if I feel it’s worth it. If you’ve got some haters, it means you’ve also done a good job. Till the moment you’re keeping the public on their toes, you’re trending.”

Adnan has become a big star, he was recently called by a clinic in Turkey that sponsored his expenses and performed a rhinoplasty and a hair transplant on him.

He claimed, that it made him even more famous. He continued: “If taking care of skin, doing makeup, and going all the way to Turkey to get a nose job makes me happy, I don’t care what the rest of the world thinks. I do what makes me feel confident about my look. I felt honored to be invited for the collaboration.”

‘I won’t go extreme’ – Adnan Zafar

In the world, many have gone extreme with the procedures to lookalike as Ken-doll. Adnan clearly said that he won’t do any extreme stuff. He added: “I don’t think I require any more extreme procedures like other Ken dolls have. I believe in good skincare and aesthetic care, and regular visits to the dermatologist which helps me not to overdo things.”

Adnan is more interested in Tiktok rather than Instagram with 450,000 followers on the former. He even planned to start his YouTube channel when his followers hit half a million on Tiktok.

He concluded, “My YouTube channel which will help people to know me better. I will start working on it after Eid, inshaAllah, wherein I will be helping people with skincare tips, taking them inside my life in Dubai, and a lot of positivity.”
