Social Studies has a sneak peak of The Beauty Bean’s interview with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl Brooklyn Decker that comes out Thursday where the model discusses the pressure to have the perfect body in Hollywood, what she wishes she could tell her younger self and her beauty must-haves. See below for some highlights and be sure to check out the complete interview on thebeautybean.com.
Brooklyn on body perfection pressure:
I think it’s something every woman struggles with. I think the biggest thing is that we as women should try to be the best versions of ourselves, not fit into a mold. I know I’m very lucky, but I have been criticized by my crazy business and it took me a while to realize that I couldn’t transform myself into something I wasn’t. I had to embrace what made me “me” and really learn to just appreciate and try to improve what I already had.
Brooklyn on her can’t-live-without-it beauty product:
Cetaphil face wash! It took me years to find something for my ever-evolving skin. This is perfect. It strips my face of makeup, but I’m not left with that cracky dry feeling, and my skin is clearer than ever with it!
