This commercial isn’t real and neither are society’s standards of beauty.
I’ve known plenty of girls throughout my life who have had low self-esteem because of the way they look. The beauty industry has been telling them since they were born that they aren’t pretty enough. They are constantly bombarded by photography of women that are more beautiful, more flawless, and less fat. The industry has used digital manipulation to make their models achieve an impossible perfection. Women are held to a standard of beauty that is literally unobtainable. Models and celebrities are also starving their bodies to drop dress sizes to the point of it being a health risk.
Somebody get those ladies a cheeseburger!
Top 3 Problems with the Beauty Industry:
- Beauty products show unrealistic and unobtainable results.
- Models are so skinny that a regular person who is in shape is considered a plus size!
- Women and girls are bombarded by “you don’t look this good” advertising.
