Beneath the surface of what most of us see in our daily lives, an unseen world of sex slavery affects millions of people each year. According to the International Labour Organization, over 20.9 million adults and children are victims of commercial sexual servitude and forced labor, and of those, only 0.4% have been identified. If nothing changes, the future isn’t pretty—the sex slavery industry is the fastest growing criminal enterprise.

Speak up for those who can’t speak out. This November, join us in wiping away the makeup and recognize your natural beauty! In a world where over-sexualization and photoshopped fantasies are the norm, it’s no wonder we have failed to prevent an unjust and cruel industry from spreading.

GUIDELINES

Simple: go without makeup for a full 30 days.

Yes, this is a huge challenge, but it goes to show how dependent we’ve become on makeup to make us feel confident about our appearance and how we look to others. Do your best this month and your skin will thank you!
