You're beautiful. Even if you don't see it, other people do.
Only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful. At Dove, we are committed to creating a world where beauty is a source of confidence, not anxiety. So, we decided to conduct a compelling social experiment that explores how women view their own beauty in contrast to what others see.
A woman walks into a room. A forensic sketch artist sits in the room with his back turned to her. He asks her to describe her own appearance. He sketches a face according to that description, then sends her away.
Another woman enters. The sketch artist asks her to describe the first woman. He draws a face according to that description.
Then he shows the first woman both portraits. Her own description was far, far more critical than the other woman's.
When it comes to body image, we're own own harshest critics.
