How is this "True" Beauty?


How is this "true" beauty? This video on youtube of the Dove Beauty Campaign shows that anyone could do this, to become this fake person everyone wants to be. Women look at these ads wanting to be like this person, but the sad thing is this person isn't real. Sure there was an actual person in the picture but by the time she made it to the billboard, she has changed completely. After seeing this video, I realized that wanting to be like that person in a certain ad or magazine was stupid because that isn't the real them, they are altered to pit that perfect mold soceity wants. Realize that you are beautiful the way you are and don't try to change yourself to be like the people in those ads that you see, instead try to take on a new hobby or read a book or just spread awareness about this to get others attention. I think as women, we should write to magazines saying that we want to see regular people on those pages. We want to see the real people behind all of that photoshop. If you want to learn more about the Dove's Beauty Campagin please visit this website Here also there is another website that teaches women about loving the body they have and what you can do to empower women to feel the same way, you can visit this website Here! We can make a change in this world one ad at a time, lets see if we can make this change happen -Amber
