Watch and learn

Even I'm surprised by some of what I saw in another of the Dove Campaign for Real Beauty videos. . . .




**Thanks, Erik, for sending it my way.

This just shows how absolutely ridiculous our standards for beauty are. I agree with the person who posted the video, it should be required viewing for all teens and young adults!

Wow. I have never seen the REAL before and after of an airbrush... they show a lot of the "before" faces of celebrities, with out any makeup (supposedly)- but never the neck stretching, face cutting and lifting. The pictures of the models with heads larger than pelvises are floating around, but that is amazing, and creepy. A woman (girl, teen) really doesn't even have a chance these days?!

Well said. We don't even have a chance to feel good about ourselves, because we're continually confronted with distorted idealized images like these.

Thanks for posting this. I'm glad someone is putting this sort of thing out there.
