The campaign for real beauty

Take a look behind the lens of the fashion industry and see what defines real beauty. Take a look at the misconception our children are being forced to live up to, a reality that doesn’t exist. Pressure that is heaped upon young girls, and boys, to live up to impossible proportions when the truth of the matter is that no one looks like that anyway.

Not even the top models or the movie stars, but with every page turn of a fashion magazine comes the abuse and insults that you do not live up to a a standard that doesn’t exist. Understand that most of the writers, photographers and computer wizards who create these images bare no resemblance to the image they portray.

Understand there is not thing as perfect, you are perfect the way you are. There is no need for diets, unless for health reasons, or cosmetic surgery purely to fulfill a level vanity that our world seems intent on pursuing. I love this campaign from Dove because it celebrates real people. It’s name, the campaign for real beauty. This video says it all…..

  1. Yes, it’s very difficult to age in society. When I see pictures of Cher, who is around my age, and then look in the mirror…it makes me want to recapture my youth, too. But then I remember how much I loved the softened features of my grandparents and I would never have wanted them to use plastic surgery to change their features. Hopefully, my grandchildren feel the same way!lol ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. I am sure your grandchildren will feel the same way.

      We do live a strange world at the moment, lets hope the superficial aspects dissolve into history as we move forward, at least for our children and grand childrens sake.

      Take care Alan.


  2. I always respect a man who appreciates the raw beauty of a woman.
    I always respect a woman who accepts she is beautiful as is.

    Thank you Alan for sharing this campaign. It means so much — much deeper than the skin and contour of a woman!
