The other day I had a particularly hard time getting this sales girl off my back while I went around the store making purchases. She literally followed me to every aisle, and kept pushing me to buy the fairer shade. I was in no mood to shout at anyone so I just walked out with only half my shopping done :/
People really need to change their mindset drastically. Bring fair does not automatically make you beautiful. Being fair does not automatically make you superior. Being fair does not automatically make the world a better place for you. Be ‘fair’ in the real sense.
So true, really sometimes the sales people piss us off, doesn't even allow you to shop in peace
T G A F A,
This sales push has not gone beyond limits. And of course it is being supported by keenness to be fairer. I feel one should be happy to be healthy and competent irrespective of skin colour.
Well said dear, we all should be happy with our color skin and stop trying a change…
I'm snow white, and even I had that problem when i lived in India, every sales woman tried to make me look fair and lovely…
and then I came back to Spain and everyone here is using auto bronzing products and goin to beauty parlors for UVA rays… the world has gone mad!
i agree..i have seen this happening..i get so annoyed when all these products want to make you fairer..i am sorry i don't want to be fairer or thinner or taller..these physical qualities don't change who i am!
woow it's soo nice to hear someone with same view. I too is sick and tired of people pushing it down my throat.
Beauty comes in all shades and hues.
Thanks for the reminder beautiful.
Great blog post!!!! This needs to stop.
Great post! Totally agree with u
T G A F A,
I meant … push has now gone….. .
this is not fair
great one 🙂
I totally agree with you! You know what, I have a wheatish complextion but I have a glowing and a spotless skin. *Touchwood* And girls with fairer complextion ask the secret behind my glow! So it is never about being dark or fair. All you need is a healthy skin!
Fair Fair everywhere is it really fair 😉
I loved the last quote..
I wouldn't trade my almond honey skin color for anything in this world. I've had loads of people offering tips on how to get fair. I ask them to do something about their ugliness first and then talk to me. No kidding, its the best defense 🙂
Sooo true!! It's really irritating when these SAs' bother us till no end…. The funniest thing that I find these days is “Mam this is with a pink base, will make you look pinker than what your yellow tone is!” and I am like “Can I slap her?? I am happy with my skin tone the way it is!”
This is so true! I've never understand the obsession of some Indians with fair skin. We are a country full of brown skin, and it was meant to be that way! I love dark skin and dark hair – amazing combination. No fairness creams for me:)
Such a lovely article, as always girl! 🙂
It's funny because we have the opposite problem in my country (Bulgaria) – most of the women here have fair skin, so the shops are flooded with tanning products and everyone is trying to convince us we need to be darker/browner. Apparently the cosmetic industry all over the world makes money through telling us we need to be/look the exact opposite of what we are.
