I created this blog to inform others about the manipulation of the female image in the media and its correlation to the desperately thin standard of beauty on a progressing global level.

The thing that really bothers me about this Ad featuring Kim and Khloe Kardashian is the fact that they are both pretty big icons in promoting beauty standards. So why are these celebrities endorsing unnatural and perhaps harmful ways to slim down? Money. I could see any one of my teenage cousins, who watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians, looking at this advertisement and thinking that this product could make them be more like Kim or Khloe. Not only does this advertisement promote an unhealthy lifestyle in the fact that it educates people into thinking they can cut corners and still look slim but it promotes unrealistic beauty standards through unnatural means.
What ever happened to eating well balanced meals and exercising?
