We might not always realize it, but labeling people, whether rashly or in jest, can hugely impact how they see themselves. Maybe it was something said as a joke, or a comment we perceived as well-meaning, or something we repeat just because that label's established in society anyway—whatever it is, it likely doesn't help the person on the receiving end.


Social stereotypes and labels are at the heart of The Body Shop's latest campaign. In a two-minute video that invites people to #LiveYourSkin, the brand’s latest ambassadors share their stories of being labeled a certain way—and how they reacted to them.
