I issued the challenge because it was becoming more and more apparent that it would be a challenge.
This Friday, my body image class and I will go without any enhancements. What are enhancements? Make-up, perfume, hair product, weave/ extensions (that aren’t sewn in), fake eyelashes, contacts, flat ironing, etc.
As we have immersed ourselves in more and more conversation this semester, I’ve become aware that some of my students think the skin they see in magazines or on television is that person’s skin. But it’s not. We’ve become less and less aware of what real skin looks like. And so this Friday, we will reaquiant ourselves with what we look like without the stuff.
Can you join us? If you are in, let me know in the comments section, and look for the All Natural instructions on the blog this Thursday.
