Why are there always beautiful people in ads mum?

Question from my 7 year old daughter while watching TV – “Mum why do they always use super beautiful people in ads – doesn’t it make normal people feel sad?”
Nothing against the genetically blessed (overlay that these beautiful people have already been unnecessarily photoshopped) but when my daughter asks questions like this it goes straight to my heart.
Im glad that she still knows that this isn’t realistic for everyone.
I hope that she maintains the strength not to try to be this unrealistic image of perfection and avoids the sadness that comes with not feeling perfect enough.
She is enough.
She always will be.
So am I
and so are YOU.
This is a much needed doco. Beautiful! Love Body Image Movement. x
