New Dove Film: Beauty Industry Onslaught

Watch. Think. Respond.

How do you deal with the onslaught of the beauty industry? There’s no right or wrong answers here, but the film makes an excellent point on the affects of beauty marketing to young girls. Beauty isn’t some magic pill, miracle cream, or even 8 glasses of water a day. It’s being happy inside and out. Do what you need to do to achieve that “Powerful Beauty”!

Being a mom of 5 daughters, this video really hits home. I want my girls to understand the meaning of real beauty, and it is something we talk about a lot. Thanks BB!

Jen, My sister and I discuss things like this quite frequently over email. The other day I was at a sporting event and heard a father telling his young daughter how boys are better than girls, and how girls are just around to look good. I couldn’t believe my ears. If my husband wasn’t there to hold me back, I think I would’ve smacked the father.
As it is, I gave him my best cold-as-ice-you-total-idiot look. Grrrr.

It can just be teeny off-hand comments that will make girls sink in their self-esteem later in life. That one comment could be relived a hundred times.
