‘You’re More Beautiful Than You Think.’

By 
“You’re your own worst critic.” How many times have we heard that phrase? Women are often much more self-critical than men, especially when it comes to appearance. But is this harsh self-appraisal appraisal warranted or even justified? According to Dove’s most recent Real Beauty campaign, the answer is a resounding no. 

Dove recruited seven women of different ages and asked them to describe themselves to an FBI sketch artist. Unbeknownst to the women, sketch artist Gil Zamora also drew them according to the description of complete strangers. The result? The two sketches side by side highlighted how women view themselves and how they focus on what they perceive to be their worst features. The tagline of the campaign?

“You are more beautiful than you think.”

So, stop worrying that your nose is too big or that your cheekbones aren’t model-perfect. The point of this inspirational campaign is that we are all beautiful – even if we choose not to see it ourselves.
