REAL LIFE BEAUTY SKETCHES: WHAT I LEARNT FROM THE DOVE AD CAMPAIGN

Hey guys,

Many of you might have seen the new dove ad campaign. This advert is nothing short of genius because for me it really emphasised the true meaning of beauty and how it is perceived.

In this ad, the women viewed themselves a little less beautiful than they actually were, often remarking on their unique traits as some form of flaw. These women were required to talk to a FBI sketch artist behind a curtain and give a vivid description about (how they perceived) themselves for a sketch, and  most of the comments of the women about themselves were more negative than positive.  A  particular woman even talked about how her mom always told her that she had a big jaw or something of that sort, which she carried into adulthood. That little insecurity, imperfection that made her unique, was actually what she feared the most just because her mother failed to see the beauty in a strong jaw line.

Towards the end of the ad, third parties were called in to describe these beautiful women, and it’s no surprise that they were actually more beautiful than how they thought they were.

MY LESSONS

Parents should always tell their children especially their daughters how beautiful and perfect they think they are so they can grow to be strong confident adults without thinking lowly of themselves.

Believe you are beautiful regardless of your flaws, it’s what we show to people around us because in the end, beauty is all about perception.

We all have a thing or two to learn from this beautiful ad, and this is mine.

Stay Organically Beautiful,

Vivianne
