Pressure to Be The 'Perfect Woman'

Written by Kelly Duncan


Posted on 31 August 2018

I want to talk about the pressures society puts on us to be a ‘perfect woman’. It can often consume our minds and bodies on a daily basis, to conform or not to conform?

After discussing last weeks ‘Insta v Reality’ topic, we got talking about Renee Zellweger and how she came back onto the scene a couple of years ago to find herself being almost publicly shamed because of her new appearance after surgery. The pressures of being a perfect woman to look in her 30s and keep the Hollywood roles coming in had pushed her to the drastic measure of surgery.

But that isn’t how it is, certainly not how it should be, look at Helen Mirren. She embraced her natural beauty that embodied a certain sex appeal in the late 70s/ early 80s and hit the Hollywood scene big time. She’s still a very popular actress and has gone on to show women what natural beauty can look like.

Whilst it has been reported in previous years that Helen Mirren would ‘Never say never’ to Surgery, she is also of the mind to say ‘"It's sad when people destroy their faces with too much work".

We want to celebrate natural and healthy beauty with you. Celebrate what we think Helen Mirren embodies. She didn’t conform to the peer pressure and she is incredibly successful and a beautiful woman. At Natural Elements, we are proud to be all about Natural Beauty, encouraging a healthy mindset and feeling wonderful.
