True Beauty.....?

I'm not promoting the Dove self esteem fund or anything, but this does kinda make you mad. I'm a little more okay for the first part - I mean, we all look better with our hair fixed. But by the time they get to the whole neck-stretching, cheekbone-raising, eyebrow-moving thing, I want to smack somebody!

So sorry - I had to delete this video because of the You Tube content options at the end.

Makes me angry!

Whoa! No wonder they look so perfect!

That was so amazing...I have heard about "airbrushing", etc. but never realized WHAT a difference it makes until I saw this clip! Our "girls" grow up comparing themselves to a false perception!(Let me know when you find a "before and after" of a cellulite clip! Ha!) Thanks for sharing that...

Bobbie said...

That's terrible. I pray my baby grows up knowing that these "models" are not what people really look like. No wonder young girls can't be happy with who they are.

I am so WITH you, Sarah! When I saw this a few months ago, I could not believe it! I too had heard that ads were doctored, but I never dreamed to what extent. This is very revealing.
I'm so thankful I was raised with the mindset that beauty truly is as beauty does. A person lacking all symmetry can actually become gorgeous (by her actions) when seen through the eyes of a beholder who sees what's real, lasting, and valuable.

I saw this too some time ago, and it did make me upset to think that this industry tries to fool us all. How could we possibly measure up to machine-made beauty?

As for a cleaner source, you might try pasting in a link to the actual Dove site -- I think they have this clip still on their website.

I tried to email you via your profile, and it wouldn't work. Any chance you could email me at lauralavon@gmail.com?
I want to send you a little package and need your shipping address.
Thank you for your sweet encouragement to my girls! You and your sisters are an inspiration. I'd love to hear the three of you play together sometime! Assure your dear mother that her investment has benefited not only you girls but also others she may never even know!

I just watched it on the Dove website. Wow! Maybe we don't look much different than the supermodels after all. (Without all their touchups, that is...) :)

I am always amazed to see celebrity's with their hair a mess and no make-up. I never feel quite as dowdy. Sad that most little girls/young girls don't know the difference. We mommies have a big, big job!

I've seen this before - incredibly aggravating!!!
