This Aerie Model Photoshopped Her Body To Prove A Point About 'Perfection'

August 16, 2016 by Sara Alderman

Iskra Lawrence wants to prove a point about body image. The Aerie model shared two side-by-side photos on Instagram to show how easy, and quick, it is to photoshop a person’s body. She wrote that her editing only took 10 minutes. Ten! That’s as much time as it takes to grab a coffee at Starbucks. Crazy.

The images are a powerful message themselves, but Iskra also wrote an important caption to go along with the post. She told her followers, “I wanted to post the unretouched pic right next to the retouched one so you could see the impact of how a few edits all done on my phone can completely change the way someone looks. I can’t leave home everyday retouched & live in the “real world” airbrushed so why would I want to pretend to be online?”

🚫 shocking it only took me about 10minutes to photoshop myself to "perfection". But WTF is perfect? We weren't born thinking flaws made you less beautiful we are taught by society and the media that we should feel insecure about our flaws so we buy into certain products etc to "improve" or attain perfection. I wanted to post the unretouched pic right next to the retouched one so you could see the impact of how a few edits all done on my phone can completely change the way someone looks. I can't leave home everyday retouched & live in the "real world" airbrushed so why would I want to pretend to be online❓we are beautiful because we are us and we are so much more than our appearance. I hope when you see what looks like perfect flawless images of ppl online you don't not ever feel insecure or less beautiful because it's not real. What's real is you and you are good enough cus those "flaws" make you completely unique. 🦄✨ #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful 👙 @simplybeuk Tag a friend who is beautiful just being the REAL them🙌✨

As Iskra points out, photoshopping tools are literally a click away. But just because it’s easy to shrink your waist or smooth your face, doesn’t mean you should do it. What you should focus on instead is accepting yourself, flaws and all!
