{disturbing}

I hope all women watch and remember it's not all about your external appearance.
It is no wonder our perception of beauty is distorted!
Watch the video that’s still causing a stir all over the world:

I have posted this. Makes you realize how distorted the media is. Women need to stop wishing they looked like those cover girls. Soooo much editing! It is SO wrong.

This IS disturbing. I have to admit that I've compared myself to girls on TV and magazine ads. Sometimes it's hard not to compare. :(

This is great. I also think the male population should see it to know what is real. Thanks for sharing.

Sad but oh so true! This is why we have elementary school girls on diets and teens that look like twenty year olds.It’s all about an image they feel they have to live up to created by the media.

Thank you for posting this. It makes me want to post more photos of me wearing no makeup (and not just because I am being lazy that day).

Natural Beauties--rise up and take a stand! :)

I've seen the video before, but it never gets old. It's a great message that even those we think are perfect, really are not. It's a good reminder.

Thank you for sharing it! :)

The editing mags do nowadays with the computer is frightening. I still wonder why a handful of editors have a say in whats beautiful or why they both to do this.
