Imagine a world where beauty is a source of confidence, not anxiety. Dove presented a social experiment, where they took a select few women and unknowingly had them describe themselves to a sketch artist. Then they had a stranger (who had met the woman prior to), subsequently describe her to the same sketch artist.
In looking at the end result, the saying “we are were own worst critics” is self-evident. As women we have such skewed perceptions of ourselves and how the world sees us because we magnify and highlight our shortcomings, not our strengths; which in the eyes of a stranger may not even exist.
Dove, in their commitment to build positive self-esteem and inspire women to actualize their full potential is gave us “Real Beauty Sketches”, with hopes that we, in-turn, would have a more positive self-image.
You are more beautiful than you think.
