She captions the video, by writing: “Let’s talk SUBTLE photoshopping – and why it’s so gosh darn dangerous,’ she wrote in the caption.

“First, subtle photoshop is EVERYWHERE. Influencers use it to shave off INCHES or SHRINK WAISTS, enhance skin or darken lashes.

‘Subtle photoshop is EVERYWHERE’

“It softens veins, removes cellulite, elongates legs and does a dozen other things.

“And unlike those photoshop “fails” that pop up in the news from time to time, most subtle photoshop jobs are nearly IMPOSSIBLE TO SPOT.

“Like this pic here. I’m posing (clearly!), but then I also using apps to change my body.

“I shrink my waist and smooth my forehead vein, then get rid of the dimples on my thighs.

“Apps like these exist for photos AND FOR VIDEOS.

“My point here isn’t to shame the women who do this to their bodies – because I’ve been in that space, shrinking myself through apps, and it’s not a balanced one.

“Instead I want to remind you that this happens. The internet is curated. The online world is filtered. And social media should never be a mirror against which you judge yourself.”
