This video proves that we are our own worst critics. I truly believe that throughout the years we start to internalize the negative feedback that we receive about our physical beauty which in turn manifests its ugly head in how we view ourselves.
Instead of being super critical of ourselves and others, why don’t we commit to being more positive while appreciating our own and others unique beauty. I have plenty of flaws/imperfections but I own them and have to live with them. I commit to loving the skin that I am in!
Dove has some really great projects that they’ve conducted on our perceptions of beauty. If you haven’t already viewed this video, I hope that you enjoy.
