Weekly Recap - July 6, 2018

Ditching doctors and relying on Facebook. Millennials are skipping out of traditional practices and turning to social media to diagnose and treat their illness. Out with the old and in with the new. Billie earns r e s p e c t with its new campaign that dares to show that natural women have body hair (gasp!). How brands can appreciate all cultures and avoid cultural appropriation.

DETAILS, Please

Can social media have a positive impact on global healthcare? While Millennials are highly focused on healthy living, 93 percent of them aren't scheduling appointments with doctors for preventative healthcare. Instead, they are making use of urgent care when they become ill.

Start a new (good) habit, kill an old (bad) one. Habits – actions performed with little conscious thought and often unwittingly triggered by external cues – are powerful influences on behavior and can be our greatest allies for positive change. But because they are so difficult to break, habits are also frequent saboteurs of personal progress.

Razor company earns praise for showing women with body hair. Razor company, Billie, is showing women with body hair as part of their Project Body Hair campaign – and people on social media are loving it. The brand claims they are the first women's razor company to show women's body hair in an ad for "more than 100 years.""
