Tillotama Shome Openly Talks About Not Following Beauty Standards And We Heart It!

February 15, 2022 | by Preeti Singh

Women are always expected to live up to unrealistic beauty standards created by society. It starts from a very young age, girls are expected to be hairless all over their body, have to be slim, smell like flowers all the time, have light skin tone and be all-around perfect like those barbie dolls they used to play with when they were kids. And it is really difficult to live up to something so unobtainable and can be mentally and physically draining for women. Recently, Tillotama Shome admitted that she does not follow these extremely limiting and difficult standards of beauty on social media and we are so glad that she expressed her opinion openly without any hesitation.

Tillotama Shome is an exceptional actress who always gets praised for her talent but that does not mean she doesn’t face the pressure to look beautiful and flawless all the time like every other Bollywood heroine. But recently the Sir actress said that she doesn’t follow the mainstream beauty standards and doesn’t bother to cover her grey hair in a tweet. She also added that she don’t get pedicures or manicures and waxes occasionally unless it’s for a character. Tillotama mentioned that not every woman follows these strict beauty norms and we should not categorise it as ‘normal personal grooming’ and we couldn’t agree more with her. “I have grey hair and I let them be, I don’t get pedicure/ manicure and I wax occasionally… UNLESS a character requires these and more. Not all women have subscribed to these stringent beauty norms, so don’t make them a part of ‘normal personal grooming’. Thank you! #newnormal,” she wrote on Twitter.

Take a look:

Tillotama Shome talking about rejecting mainstream beauty standards on social media where everyone feels the need to look perfect and flawless all the time is a strong and empowering message for all women. It’s high time to stop stereotyping beauty.

Many elements on social media, magazines, newspapers and even televisions tend to push high and barely achievable beauty standards on women. It makes a lot of women try really hard in order to look a certain way for society and it will not stop until we normalise not following these standards and make our own standards that are inclusive in nature.

Several Actresses Including Tillotama Shome Have Received A Hilarious Marriage Proposal From A “Virgin” Guy. We Have No Idea Why That’s His Badge Of Pride
