I thought this was pretty interesting, apparently many are being pressured to meet unrealistic expectations concerning their looks.

Some of the advertising may have more airbrush than you realize:

It recently emerged that Twiggy was again to be the face of anti-ageing cream Olay, 25 years after she first won the job to become the fresh new face of one of the biggest beauty brands.

Yet pictured in a natural state a few weeks shy of her 60th birthday, Twiggy, who is often referred to as the original supermodel, showed she does in fact age just like the rest of us.

If anyone has ever believed any beauty commercials, I feel sorry for you.
The models that are on those commercials go through hours of make-up and hair styling and I'm sure most of us don't have that sort of time.
Not to mention all the air brushing....

Okay, now tell us something we don't know. This is something I learned about in high school in my Advertising class. I think its sad that there are actually people who try to meet those expectations that the media hands them.
