What a eye opener. Young minds should see this more. Report

EYE-OPENING! I find that, the older I get (now age 60), the more comfortable I am in my own skin (and the more accepting of my many, increasing "imperfections"), despite being less "conventionally attractive" as I age. INTERESTING! Report

This SHOULD be MANDATORY to be shown every classroom and on commercials so children have a REAL sense of beauty,,,,,who they ARE not what they look like.

PS: The Ugly Duckling book should be burned. Report

It is truly unbelievable what they can do with the stroke of a brush. Report

How many, though, erased the photoshopped photos and didn't keep them? That would be powerful. Report

These women are good looking just as they are. To me they look like Barbie dolls after they get worked on, especially when they photoshop the waist to an unnatural size.

Once in high school the most beautiful girl in the school was sitting in front of me and complaining to her girlfriend that her boyfriend was always looking at other girls, and I was stunned. It never ends. What is perfection? It changes with generations and with culture, etc. Report

Love this! My take away...stop looking at the women in magazines as a standard for beauty. Guess what-- they do not look like that either! Report

We see celebrities on TV and in magazines look perfect. When they are caught, without makeup by the paparazzi, they are far from perfect. Be yourself, love yourself and take care of yourself and you'll be fine. Report

I wish I could have a glamour shot Report

It is amazing what can be done. Remember "Glamour Shots"? Same thing, different tech. But I really didn't believe these women's reactions. Report

What an enlightenment! Yes, I'd love to look beautiful, but it isn't who I am. The one woman was correct in stating that if you can't be you with your imperfections, it isn't really you!

Great Video! :D Report

I do not hate or even dislike cover models. These images are designed to sell products not the women. Complaining that that women are photo-shopped is the same as complaining that real rooms are not staged. Yes, we know this. However, rooms that are not staged are not appealing to the eyes and do not sell products. Report
