People always say that young girls should not look at the models in magazines, tv, commercials etc. Its a bad influence on girls when it comes to beauty.
All these models are thinn, tall, have nice features, nice long hair and perfect skin. Its kinda hard not to think that if you don't look like that, your not beautiful.
For example, Victoria Secret models. They seem perfect. All the guys think they are hot and so many girls want to look like them. Why?...because they are beautiful. Adriana Lima, Candice, and Rosie Huntington are some of the most beautiful woman.
There is a "certain" look which is considered bautiful. A face that fits the Golden ratio.
So what if you don't have that face? What if you have a crooked nose, your not thin, you have acne...does that mean your not beautiful?
How do you see it?

Everyone has their own unique beauty.
Give any man a VS catalog, and he'll tell you page 7, 8 , 9 is sexy, but page 5,6, aren't as attractive. Why? If all the VS models are " perfect?" Because perfect doesn't exist as far as physical beauty is concerned.
Perfect is perfect for whomever deems you perfect.
The fact that the media has such a profound impact on people is what annoys me the most; it's crazy how much influence and manipulation they have on people. You have to look like such and such in order to be beautiful...says who? Those standards are impossible to reach; even the highest fashion models are still scrutinized for whatever the chosen " flaw" is. It all boils down to getting people to buy products, and feed their money into the industry. The target is to evoke people's emotional psyche, by challenging one's self - confidence and ultimately their self - worth.
" Get this product, and you'll be (insert wonderful most likely unrealistic prepositional condition here)..."
Besides - confidence and TRUE beauty come from inside. Confidence isn't something that can't be bought, lathered on, applied, or consumed lol it's something you have to build up yourself - and the media definitely ain't gonna help. Actually, it's counter effective. The constant comparing, self scrutinizing, judgment on others based off of this superficial thing and that, is what really is detrimental to one's personal image.
But when your confident - there's no need to compare, no need to scrutinize, and definitely no need to judge.
So the media can keep spitting out their ridiculous appeals, and images - I'm fine the way I am, and so is everyone else...2
