On the 14th of April, Dove posted this video to their United States YouTube channel. It’s got me all emotional and really thinking about how I see myself.
Just like most women, I’m quick to point out my flaws (my round face, my annoying hair, my big calves etc.) and then I tend to focus on those things. I know I’m not unique. This is a common design flaw in humans. Watching this video has changed that I think. It’s inspiring to say the least.
Take a look
From the video: Women are their own worst beauty critics. Only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful. At Dove, we are committed to creating a world where beauty is a source of confidence, not anxiety. So, we decided to conduct a compelling social experiment that explores how women view their own beauty in contrast to what others see.
What do you think? Do you focus on the negative too?
