The beauty standards are way too high in today’s world. Many people, especially women, feel the pressure to always look flawless, even if that means going through very strict diets, undergoing different surgical procedures, applying fillers and botox, and a lot more.
Looking at the celebrities and the models on the covers of prestigious magazines, we believe that we should look the same, often forgetting that these people have plenty of money to spare and a huge number of professionals who take care of their looks.
In recent years, some celebrities tend to promote natural beauty as a way of life as they are fed up with all the makeup, the botox, and the need to always look flawless. Among them is the Eat, Pray, Love star Julia Roberts.
Just recently, she revealed ‘the naked truth’ in a post she shared both on Facebook and Instagram, and which had been deleted shortly after because of some reason. Luckily, someone took a screenshot and now the photo is going viral.
“Perfection is a disease of a nation. We overlay our faces with tons of make-up. We get botoxs and even starve ourselves to become that perfect size. We try to fix something but you can’t fix what you can’t see. It’s the soul that needs the surgery. It’s time that we take a stand. How can you expect someone else to love you if you don’t love yourself? You have to be happy with yourself. It doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. Today, I want to put up a makeup-free photo. I know I have wrinkles on my skin but today I want you to see beyond that. I want to embrace the real me and I want you to embrace who you are, the way you are, and love yourself just the way you are,” the actress wrote.
The beauty industry is getting stronger with each passing year. According to reports, the global beauty industry market is valued at $511 billion in 2021.
There’s nothing wrong with a person wanting to feel good about the way they look on the outside, but it looks like that on the way of achieving physical perfection, we forget of the importance of our inner beauty.
