I really need to do something about my wrinkles.
I don't have enough healthy bacteria in my gut.
I'm at risk of e coli by not using the right cleaning chemicals.
Should I panic? Deep clean the house? Make a Doctors appointment? Have botox?
I don't watch a lot of TV other than box sets on Netflix and the British soaps, if I can find them on You tube. Therefore I rarely see TV adverts. But after 6 or so weeks in the UK, I've seen every advert going and apparently, my current lifestyle choices are crap.
A lot of people say how Social Media puts other people down, judges them and helps to inform our decisions on how we judge others also, but I'd say it's NOT Social Media, it's the TV.
TV is a major financial institution, your TV licence doesn't cover the cost of what you watch, even the BBC have adverts, you might not realise this, but the items they present on lifestyle choices are led by major companies, pushing their products, their ideas.
It's subliminal advertising. Adverts they tell you that you have a problem in order to sell you a product.
'Did you know the leading product only reduces your chance of xxxxxxx by 95%, our new and improved product can reduce those risks further up to 99.9%'
They're telling you that the risk of you developing/catching something is high. They scare you into buying their product, they lead you to believe that without their product you're putting yourself and your family at risk.
Ok, so skin care products aren't that risky when it comes to your health, but are you aware of how many times you get stopped in a store or in the street and told you look old, you have bad skin, your nails look terrible, your hair is lank? I know they don't use those actual words, but that's what they are implying.
This is what the cosmetic companies are saying to you 'you look like crap' buy our products and you too can look as beautiful as this.
It's all about the money and you're gullible enough to fall for it and then blame others on Social Media who have fallen for this.
This is a before and after photo of me from 18 months ago. On the left I was told to come bare faced, there was no lighting, just look at the camera. After I'd had my make over, lighting was introduced and I was encouraged to smile.
If I ever go missing, make sure the picture they use is the one on the left, as I only look like the person on the right in my profile pictures.
