Warts and all

April 12, 2017


Fashion industry and media have long been culpable for unrealistic body perception. Lately, however, social media have taken the lead in spreading the unreal body image among the younger generation.

The latest surveys show women are becoming less concerned about celebrities and females in adverts, as they are more likely to compare their appearance with the images published on social media. The researchers from Macquarie University in Sydney found out, social media is already far more damaging than the traditional one. They believe celebrities used to be more distanced and their appearance was less attainable, which is not the case with people we personally know. Comparing oneself with peers and friends is so powerful, two thirds of women between 18 and 35 edit their images before putting them online.

Is the need for showing yourself in good light only the result of competitiveness or is being genuine and flawless boring and undesirable?
