If I asked you to describe your face, how beautiful would you be?
Would you talk about your pretty eyes that carry a bright sparkle or dwell on your droopy eyelids that have sunk deeper over the last few years…?
Us, women (especially, I think) have a tendency to think low of our own beauty. Is this true?
I’ve been there myself especially when I lost muscle control in my face, (due to my illness) and could not even fake a smile! It’s still not perfect and can wear off when I overuse my facial muscles… I am at the core of accepting this and am learning to not fuss over it. To smile anyway and just let go of these imperfections….
This here is a lovely film that adds depth to what women think of their appearance. How they would describe their faces, what words they use and how they perceive themselves. What turns out is that others describe them more beautifully… because they are more beautiful than they think. Please watch.
I think this is a beautiful campaign that connects so well with women – it surely did with me.
It is however worth a mention that yes, it is a commercial. This is the latest campaign from Dove that connects with the Real Beauty message they’ve had over the years.
I do love the artistic quality of this video and the realness in the message. Well done Dove! You’ve managed to fool your customers yet again. While I do applaud your creative advertising about “real” beauty - (certainly it is not cheap, but you do sell a lot of your ‘real’ products, don’t you?). But when will you actually add “real” ingredients to your products and stay true to your message you’re sending to millions of women around the globe?
So although this latest campaign truly is beautiful and I surely was entertained (with just some tears in my eyes ;) – it will not make me purchase their products. Because I know for “real beauty” – I need “real” ingredients.
Being beautiful isn’t only about what I put on my skin, I know our skin absorbs everything we layer on it… and I know beauty is an inside job with a natural skincare regimen as well as proper nutrition.
But I think we can all look at ourselves in a brighter more beautiful light.
YOU are beautiful, you just need to believe it more!
