The Beauty…or not…of Photoshop

The beauty industry’s secret isn’t all the products many of us buy or the hair products we use.  But rather, it’s photoshop.  In the business of beauty all cosmetic companies use Photoshop to make the images they use to advertise their products and make models look ‘perfect’.  This makes it impossible to live up to the image we see.

Photoshop is very powerful.  There are celebrities who refuse to allow their pictures to be published without it being ‘photoshopped’.  Now, I’m not here to bash any companies or magazines for using the computer software that makes every blemish disappear but, rather I am saying we must recognize that it’s not all real what we see.  Understand it’s advertising and the goal is to sell products.  Realizing that no human will look that way (even the model doesn’t), we will feel better about ourselves.  Once we understand that self-confidence and self-love are the keys to not allowing the images to throw you off will help you in the long run.

I found this particular video funny and comical the way it pokes fun at expecting beauty products to change everything.  Take a look.  What do you think?
