In an inspiring video that's gone viral in the last few days, Dove is making a powerful, yet simple statement - you are more beautiful than you give yourself credit for.

With their "Real Beauty" project, they had people describe themselves to a forensic artist (one of the people who does those police sketches that we see hanging in the post office), and he made a sketch based on how they described themselves.

Then, things were changed up, they had other people describe the same person, which the artist then made sketches of.

Then, they showed both pictures to the subject. In almost every one, the subject is described as more attractive by someone else than they described themselves.

The lesson we can all take from this - we should all give ourselves more credit when being critical of our appearance. We're all more beautiful that we may think.
