Looks Can Be Deceiving

If you are anything like me you have looked in awe at magazines, ads and billboards and thought “I wish I could look like that! How can these models be so flawless? That could never be me. I could never have that skin, that hair, that body!” I then would find myself down on who I am, comparing myself to what I see in pop culture and media. That is until I learned that we have all been tricked…

I want to let you in on a secret. These models and actors do look like us! They just have computers,  a team graphic designers and editing geniuses who alter how they look. Let’s all breathe a sigh of relief (1, 2, 3, Ahhhhhh). Check out these two videos that show the deception companies and media use to fool us. Now that you know this secret you can be empowered knowing that you are more like the model and famous person than you think. We are all beautiful and special inside and out.
