Mother Teaches Her Daughter To Be Wary of “Artificial” Beauty -Video
We’ve all seen the “perfect beauty” of the women that grace magazines and advertisements on a regular basis.
Many of these images – elevated as an example of ideal beauty – have actually been enhanced through the magic of PhotoShop software.
Laura Willard, blogger and mother of two, wanted her beautiful daughter to truly understand that what she sees in magazines and ads isn’t always realistic when it comes to what is touted as the standard of beauty for women.
Through the use of a time lapsed video originally created by Global Democracy.com, she was able to demonstrate just how beauty is manipulated. Laura shared that she “…wants her daughter to see this video and I want her to see many like it because it makes it apparent how unrealistic, [our standards of beauty] are.”
We are constantly bombarded with what beauty is supposed to be – super skinny women with flawless skin and straight hair. This video is a reminder of how important it is for us to embrace our natural beauty. We must teach our children; our nieces and nephews, and our grandchildren to appreciate their unique beauty.
It’s up to the adults in their lives to help them to understand that they can’t believe the standards of beauty hype that is constantly served up on a silver platter through mainstream advertising, movies and television.
