For last three-four days, Sonam Kapoor is in the news everywhere on all the social media, for the brave step she has taken. Everyone knows there is a team behind every celebrity to get them ready for all the events and public appearances, but only Sonam Kapoor has the guts to come in front and tell about her regime before every public appearance. Female celebrities are always role models for young girls and want to look flawless like them. little they know the work behind that. Many of the young girls ended getting depression, anxiety just because they don’t have flawless skin. Many are bullied too.
Sonam Kapoor took a step to boost their morale and show them they are beautiful the way they are. She wrote a message to all of them with her picture to show them the real Sonam Kapoor behind the makeup, and guess what, she won all the hearts. Read below what she had to say to young girls.
Sonam Kapoor Says;
“So, for every teen girl leaning into her bedroom mirror, wondering why she doesn’t look like a celebrity. Please know that nobody wakes up like this. Not me, Not any other actress, (Not even Beyoncé. I swear.) Here’s the real deal. Before each public appearance, I spend 90 minutes in a makeup chair. Three to six people work on my hair and makeup, while a professional touches up my nails. Every week my eyebrows are tweezed and threaded. There’s concealer on parts of my body that I could never have predicted would need concealing.
I’m up at 6 am every day and at the gym by 7:30. I exercise for 90 minutes and, some evenings, again before bed. It’s someone’s full-time job to decide what I can and cannot eat. There are more ingredients in my face packs than in my food. There’s a team dedicated to finding me flattering outfits.
After all, that, if I’m still not “flawless” enough, there are generous servings of Photoshop.
I’ve said it before, and I will keep saying it. It takes an army, a lot of money, and an incredible amount of time to make a female celebrity look the way she does when you see her. It isn’t realistic, and it isn’t anything to aspire to.
Aspire to confidence. Aspire to feeling pretty and carefree and happy, without needing to look any specific way.
The next time you see a 13-year-old girl gazing wistfully at a blemish-free, shiny-haired Bollywood actress on a magazine cover. Bust the myth of flawlessness for her.
Tell her how beautiful she is. Praise her smile or her laugh or her mind or her gait.
Don’t let her grow up believing that she’s flawed, or that there’s anything she’s lacking for looking different from a woman on a billboard. Don’t let her hold herself to a standard that’s too high, even for the women on the billboards.”
