Priyanka Chopra Jonas has revealed she had to ‘come to terms’ with her natural skin and hair because of society’s beauty standards.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas has spoken about the impact society’s “unrealistic beauty standards” have had on her.
In a recent interview with The Telegraph, the 39-year-old model, actress and film producer discussed her daily work routine through to her dogs that she shares with husband Nick Jonas. She also spoke about beauty, and said she “always felt pressure to look a certain way” in the past.
“I have been raised with unrealistic beauty standards my whole life — we all have,” Chopra Jonas said. “Growing up, I believed everything had to be perfect, skinny or sample size, and airbrushed. It has taken me time to come to terms with my natural skin and natural hair texture,” Chopra Jonas said.
She further revealed that in the past, she’d had her hair “professionally blow-dried” and her makeup done by an artist before interviews and events. Now, however, the star says she handles both herself.
“It’s been a revelation,” she said. “I’m now comfortable in my own skin and I can work with brands that are about individuality and expressing yourself.”
Her future work with Victoria’s Secret as part of the new VS Collective — which has replaced the brand’s iconic yet controversial Angels — will help drive “positive change” in the company and the world, according to the brand.
