I am aware of how much editing is done before the actual product print is made because first they have to find the perfect picture and then they will look at it closely and change up even the smallest thing such as a hair fly away or if the model is looking a little bigger than usual they will edit the model down to look as perfect as they want but in reality that’s not how the model looks. In my opinion men might get even more editing than women do in advertisements, I believe this is true because as much pressure that is put on women even more ir put on men to look good have a good built body. Men probably are more pressures to have a good built body with abs and look toned. I feel that when men are edited on advertisements that they don’t feel as down about themselves because lots of men think that they don’t need to change anything about themselves. So when they are changed I don’t think it affects them as much. My self esteem is always changing just depending on how I feel especially when someone compliments me. I feel really good about myself but at times I also feel really low and I
feel that social media and how people think I should look really brings me down. The way social media thinks most girls should look is really hard for me because it’s like everyone can be however they chose so there really is no specific way I should have to look. I found an article where teens are using social media to boost up their confidence and break down others. It a known fact that almost all teens use social media to feel good about themselves. But a big part of using social media for some people is using it as a way to break people down and lower their self esteem. Most people will post a picture using the caption “I look so bad but it's fine might delete later” and they use this quote as a way to get nice comments like” you look good stop lying” but I feel they use this as a way to ask for nice comments to feel better.
