According to Dove, women are their own worst beauty critics. They write:
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.
Yes I think I have an ugly face! But here’s the good news. Make-up, dyes, and anti-wrinkle cream can make many of my flaws disappear; at least make me delude myself into thinking no one can see them.
Sorry Dove, no anxiety here! I have confidence, not in my looks, but in my abilities and the Force which never ceases to get me what I need. And yes, my family and friends see me as more beautiful than I see myself. Therefore after a while they don’t even see or care about the ugliness that has become my “BFF.” Thus I can face the world believing I am ugly, but also carrying the energy of beauty, the energy of confidence, the energy of success!
