For the longest time, we have been told that fair skin is good, while dark skin is not. Celebrities, who influence millions of people endorse fairness products telling how fair skin is beautiful and also boosts your confidence. Well, Priyanka Chopra is one of the many celebs to have endorsed skin whitening creams in India.
Priyanka has been very vocal about racism in the last few years. And every time, she speaks about racism, people criticize her for the hypocrisy. In a recent interview, Priyanka confessed that she regrets promoting fairness products.
Priyanka stated that skin lightening was so normalized in South Asia that everyone was doing it as it’s such a large industry. She said, “It was awful for me, for a little girl who used to put talcum-powder cream on my face because I believed that dark skin was not pretty.”
Priyanka said that she was bullied during her high school days and that she felt exposed due to her dark skin.
The actor no longer endorses any kind of fairness cream and also regrets doing it in the past. But as they say, better late than never.
On the work front, Priyanka is currently enjoying the success of her film ‘The White Tiger.’
