Many people strive to look like their favorite celebrities, but the problem is some of these celebrities don’t even look the way they appear to in pictures. Celebrities are often caught photoshopping their Instagram pictures in an attempt to appear flawless. Other times, their photos are used on magazines covers and in other media where they are professionally photoshopped. This gives the general public increasingly unrealistic expectations of achieving desired body types.

Sometimes the photoshopping is very obvious, which is a great reminder that nobody is perfect.
