Dove’s new campaign, Real Beauty Sketches, reminds us that women are their own worst beauty critics. Consider this sad statistic: Only four percent of women around the world consider themselves beautiful. That’s insane, right? Just think of how many women you see and envy daily. The reality is that you got what others want and you don’t even realize it.
Thankfully, Dove conducted a compelling social experiment that explores how women view their own beauty in contrast to what others see. The results teach us to love our quirks, appreciate our bodies by focusing on the positive and to go easy on ourselves. Just as fellow twenty-something divorcée Christina Aguilera sings, you are beautiful!
