This tutorial is one of the tutorials used in class with students when reviewing the media and beauty. We usually start the class with a review of the dove commercial (I have used this for the last 2 years) it’s a great start to debate on “Digital Surgery”; with another Dove advert.
Students usually like the debates, I usually divide the class in two groups, one that research “the good of the beauty industry” and the other group looks at “the ugly side of the beauty industry”.
