Nowadays we see so many endorsements of fairness creams and now there is so many beauty creams that it becomes difficult for us to judge which cream to opt for and which cream would really make us fair. We are so obsessed of being fair that the time is not far away when there would be products made to eat and become fair sounding funny right? But it’s actually not that funny and is a very serious issue to think about.
The dream boy of every girl earlier was tall, dark and handsome but that also has changed to fair, dark and handsome and one of the instances can be seen in fair and handsome, a cream advertisement which is endorsed by bollywood actor Sharukh Khan. We think that a person is beautiful only when he or she is fair but that’s not really true, we have so many dusky skinned actresses like Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and they are really very beautiful. This concept of finding a fair skinned wife is deeply ingrained in the mind-set of every marriageable Indian man and his parents, we normally seen a matrimony ad which says “looking for a fair, tall, slim, beautiful, educated and homely girl”. I have experienced this myself when I go to some family function with my cousin who is dark people generally recommend her for some brand of fairness creams. I have lot of dark skin toned friends who have sharp features and they are quite pretty.
Beauty definition for most of us is external looks but the real beauty is the internal beauty because the outer appearance will some or other day fade away but our character will always remain the same so never judge people by their skin tone.
