Hello my lovelies!
Random post again, this time about my thoughts on beauty commercials.
I've been reading a lot of posts from fellow bloggers where they mention their anticipation of summer. My feelings on the arrival of summer, though, are mixed. Overall, I'm not excited about it- to say the least. Let me explain myself; summer makes me anxious.
Please don't get me wrong for saying this, I'm not trying to gain any compliments out of it- I probably shouldn't complain about my body, but here's the thing; I don't feel comfortable exposing a lot of skin. I may be slim, but that's not enough. I feel my arms are always swelled up, my legs looking too slim or too fat...
Where I'm going is this; I'm not intimidated by beautiful and fit women on magazines or at the streets. My alarm bell/shock emerged from those adverts on tv with cellulite creams and slimming pills. As if someone was telling me "don't fool yourself, you HAVE an issue of weight/cellulite and if you don't do something about it you're doomed".
I'm typing this while being aware of all businesses' basic law of creating a need +then fulfilling it, but I still can't get this phrase out of my head. Knowing that skin exposure during summer is inevitable, it makes me even more vulnerable to such thoughts.
I really want to know your opinions on the subject. Do these kind of commercials dispirit you in a way?
Happy blogging and reading and commenting to everyone!
