Real Beauty and the Media

Whether you’ve seen the products on the shelves at the convenient store, or personally used the body products, you’re bound to have come across the logo “Dove.”  Well, the Dove Company you’re thinking about is one advocate in the fight to help women develop confidence with themselves and feel comfortable in their own skin. I stumbled upon these videos that they’ve released to the public, and was instantly drawn into their honesty and compassion they show towards the sensitive topic of body image.

Take a moment to watch this short video. I think that you’ll be shocked at how much the media controls the way that we see beauty. What we see is the sculpted version of the reality that the media is too scared to show. It’s no wonder people aim to look a certain way without completely understanding that it’s virtually unattainable.
