What is Real Beauty?

Everyone knows that Hollywood and the glam industry portrays women as perfect and thin. It is hard not fall into the trap of thinking we need to fit into what is portrayed to the world to feel beautiful.

One of the companies that I really have appreciated over the past couple of years who has taken a stand against this, is Dove. Their campaign for real beauty definitely caused controversy when it was first put out. I ran across this short film, that was eye opening...
