Dove’s DermaSeries Advertisements Feature Women With Skin
Dove has stepped out of the ordinary in order to feature women with skin conditions in their
latest product launch. Focusing on those of us with various skin conditions, they are using
models with psoriasis, eczema and other skin conditions to showcase their new line of
It’s not often we see advertisements
with models who don’t have “flawless,”
airbrushed skin – despite the fact that
more than one in four Americans live
with a skin disease. Even ads for
products meant to combat red, flaky or

On Wednesday, Dove launched its DermaSeries collection – a range of hypoallergenic and
fragrance-free products made especially for those with dry skin. Unlike other ad campaigns,

including eczema, psoriasis and acne.
“These women are under-represented in mainstream media – they don’t feature them even in
advertisements aimed at them. We are changing this by putting real women with real conditions –
looking beautiful, confident and at peace with their skin – at the heart of our campaign for Dove
DermaSeries,” a Dove spokesperson told The Mighty.

flaky, crusty patches of skin
covering the sufferer. It can be incredibly itchy and sore.
Jessica first noticed spots on her torso, but as she could easily cover them up, didn’t tell
anybody about it until she was 15 when she was diagnosed with guttate psoriasis after small
red patches started spreading over her entire body.
By covering up – even in the height of summer – Jessica avoided stares from outsiders until
her skin condition was affecting her hands, when she started noticing people moving away
from her. This woman claims she cured her psoriasis with veganism
