I see these kinds of posts all over the net but this one really interested me. In the past few years, women have been celebrated for their curves and being too skinny was seen as unattractive and unhealthy. Techniques like Photoshopping to remove the odd wrinkle or stretch mark are becoming increasingly popular, women in the media have become images of unattainable “perfection”.

Everybody needs to see this, everybody needs to know this. Young ladies in particular need to grow up to realise… NOBODY looks like that! The sad thing about is, these woman all look beautiful in reality, but compare them to their Photoshopped self, even they probably don’t want to look at reality! The following images show us how some of these celebs look when you take away the retouching.
